About bloomin' time for a post...

... cor cant believe where the time has gone since my last post. Not much happening here in the B household just pottering on by with work and then a little bit of stitchy stuff and cardy stuff when I can squeeze it in on a night!!

My meal planning is still working - I'll have to get round to posting it and adding it to at home with Mrs M's meal plan monday

Oh yes, before I forget even some "successful" baking which very rarely happens but I made a Banana Loaf with a recipe from The goddess's Kitchen - it was so quick and easy, and tasted delish - look heres a picture:

check that out!! It looks shop bought doesnt it - but no I did it!!!

Different cards have been made one a get well card for a friend who is recovering from surgery following a mastectomy:

This was an freebie image from a magazine (I think) cut with my Nesties, coloured with promarkers and 3d glossy accents on the black bit in the centre of the flower. The ribbon is from my stash and papers that I was lucky enough to receive from Mina.

Sorry for the dark photos (again!!).

I would like to enter this into:

MAWTT - Get well soon

Then the rest were mainly birthday cards:

This for Ians uncle who has had many hobbies but the one he keeps coming back to is model aeroplanes:
Another image coloured with promarkers matted onto black card and then used Basic Grey papers with olive & black ribbon from my stash with a craftwork cards sentiment added.

Will check if there are any challenges I can enter this into :-)

Pennys Paper crafty -anything goes

I wont bore you with many more photos - just one last one, this was for my lovely mother in law who helps me out soooooo much looking after the boys if hubbys shifts fall wrong when I am at work:

Just realised its a bit of a LOTV fest this afternoon, I have coloured the image with promarkers and cut with my nesties and distressed the edges. then added doily and papers from my stash and then added Mum which I die cut with my one set of alphabet :-(

Again, will check on challenges for this.

Lilis little fairies - anything goes (challenge on Bev and Jacques blog but not up and running yet)
