My lovely friends, thank you xx

Sunday, 22 July 2012



Oh hope you are enjoying your Sunday, its glorious here in Kent today :o)

I have been indoors though, I really should get out for a little while but I got up early and got the ironing out the way and then made 2 batches of cupcakes, choc chip for the kids as their fav and coffee and walnut for me and hubby.  Tonight I am cooking one of Jamie Olivers 30 min meals, decided I really need to brush up on my cooking skills which are pretty naff!  I have also made a card but I did the colouring last night OMG 3 before this went in the bin but I am happy with this one now.  Another gorgeous freebie from Krista at Saturated Canary and I  must admit when I read the challenge of black white and one other I wasn't over keen as took me way out of my comfort zone but guess what........I LOVE it, hope you likey?????????
