Hi everyone, hope your enjoying your weekend.
I have had a busy one again with Maddison being around. We baked some brown bread plait, she did a really good job of mixing the dough and kneading it. After it had rested I showed her how to cut it into roll size and then how to plait one and then she did the rest. After that we made 10 Banana Muffins with chocolate and sultana's in and some mixed spice. Naughty but really  scrummy!!!!!!!
After eating a cheese plait and a banana muffin for her lunch, daddy took her out for a walk down to Middlebrook.
I had a quick tidy up and then cut some pieces of card and embossed and die cut them. I have a commission for a 40th Birthday card.

I'm just in the middle of a clean and tidy now Maddison has gone home. Thought I would have a quick 30 mins and show you some more cards that I made this week.

I'm really trying not to purchase any craft stuff, so have used what craft card and stuff that I already own. These two cards are using Kanban card stock.

  This one is made with a Hunkadory card that my friend gave me.

These last three are made some free craftwork card paper that I got with a  magazine a couple of weeks ago. I am only purchasing a magazine when there is a really good free gift and I'm desperate for something to read.
I hope you haven't got all this dreadful snow and ice that I have here. I can't go out as I'm frightened of falling.
Tomorrow my hairdresser is coming to cut my hair. But wednesday I have an appointment at the hospital with the oncologist at 10am so I hope all this ice as gone by then or I will be struggling to walk.
Well off to finish the dreaded housework now.  See you all soon I hope. Thanks for dropping by, love and hugs to you all. xxxChrisB


  1. What fabulous cards Christine. I love the sentiments, are they little stamps. I must admit that I don't buy magazines, but perhaps I should, it might kick start me into making cards

  2. Lovely cards Chris I especially like the bird one. Good luck with your apt on Wednesday. I too have those
    lovely papers!
