Morning peeps !!

Hope you are all safe and sound after the gales and heavy rain.  We woke to a power cut and boy did I miss my morning cuppa !! But thankfully the worse missed us.....how did you all fare ??

Today is a new challenge for you at



And how about winning this fab die !!


I've made this cute gift box of notelets using


 

I love this paper by  Dovecraft called "Garden Party", the colours and patterns are so pretty.

Done my usual of printing and then fussy cutting out Benson, then colouring him in with promarkes colour matching the flower with the paper. The sentiment is a stamp by Stampin Up. Just had to finish off with some faux stitching.

Why not check out all the stamps at Crafty Sentiments Designs and see which ones you could use to make a little gift for someone special !!

Santa's Sweet Cookies !!

That's the name of our team which includes

Jan and myself !!

Over the last few days the Crafty Sentiments Design Team have been showing you on our Inspirational Blog, the fab new release stamps and yesterday we started with our secret projects !!

We have had a little fun with the DT and we split into teams.

Each team used one of the new stamps which we will be showing you over the next 5 days

Each team used 2 or 3 elements depending on how many in each team.

Just for fun, can you guess what 2 elements Jan and I used on our projects  today ??


Today we our both showing you

 "Baking Pie"


and here's my project


I've called it a faux chalkboard recipe display stand, what a mouth full !! It really does look like a real chalkboard when in fact its just a piece of black card !! It's for when you tear out a recipe from a magazine, you just clip it onto the display board using the pegs at the top while you are baking !!

Pop over now to

Have you ever seen......


such a wonderful chocolate creation such as this !!



A fab chocolate shoe filled with marzipan fruits !!




























It's so nice to catch up with friends over tea and cake as I did yesterday with Nicki and Kurt !!  Nicki baked a gorgeous apple cake for us and this fabulous shoe was a gift from them from their travels. I am quiet over whelmed as it really is a work of art and all handcrafted, beautiful details. I'll do a scrapbook page on it as I have never seen anything like it before !! 

Sorry Kurt my photo's aren't a patch on yours, so you will have to forgive me.....

A Grand Day Out


No not Wallace and Gromit style,
 
 but me and Carol !!

We went to Stratford upon Avon yesterday and the weather was just right, we didn't have any rain !!

The only slight problem was it was their Mop Fair and you can find the history behind this HERE

Its a shame its just a very big fun fair which sits right in the middle of the town !!

Here are a few photo's I managed to take 
 



 Carol with the "Jester"


 This is the row of Almshouses

 
Just had to go into the Butterfly Farm !!




 Thousands of butterflies flying free all around you !!  Some as big as your hand !!








Finished the day off with a walk along the river...
 
 A grand day out indeed !!
