A recipe for a cold and windy day

Today I thought I'd share a recipe I'm thinking of cooking. It's turned really cold and my thoughts are turning to stews and casseroles. I saw thi one and thought it would make a nice change from the usual offereings.

Missing in Action

Sorry, I didn't realise I'd been away so long. Sometimes the times just flies!! Anyways I've had a busy week with hospital appointments and such like and big decisions to make (more of that later).

Last Sunday I was at a work shop at that lovely shop in Marks Tey called Birds in the Barn. Always a lovely welcome from the ladies there and a wonderful shop chock full of goodies. My very firstest workshop was with the talented Hels Sheridan who does wonderful work with inks and things.

Here is what I made. A few mistakes (but not if you know what I mean), but I think it turned out rather well.

I used the techniques on hubbies birthday card. Can't believe he is 60 on Wednesday. Will post it then.

Heres one I made earlier for a friend birthday. She loves dragonflies. Again cut using the Silhouette Cameo. The main dragonfly was embossed using aqua Fran tage embossing enamel. I love this stuff and have quite a collection of colours now. I like making these little flowers too, so easy.

Cards for August

Here are the cards I made for my sons birthday last month

The one above was cut using my Silhouette Cameo machine and then embossed with Sizzix Texture Boutique Machine. I then used Snow Cap Adirondack Ink and buffed over with a piece of kitchen towel.
Stamped a Clock face using Creative Expressions Time Flies Set and printed Happy Birthday Son from the Computer. Backed the card with Silver Mirri Board and Embellished with Black and White Bakers Twine and antique Silver brads and a watch face coloured with a black promarker.

This one was using Hunkydory for the Gents pack with a printed Hapy Birthday brother and inked with distress stains and a couple of brads.

I like stamping and cutting but sometimes easy crafting is good too!!
