Signed, Sealed, Delivered, I'm Yours!


Hope you all had a great Easter break...done a bit of travelling up and down the country....Hubby has some serious brownie points from mum having trimmed her hedges! Dad was drifting in and out of sleep all the time we were there, this seems to be normal for him at the moment.

We wanted to have a cream tea before we came home...so I followed a Delia Smith recipe to the tee...and the scones came out of the oven like charcoal blocks!...I had to make a second batch... reducing the cooking time and the oven temp...they did rise and more or less worked! Still got ribbed seriously though!...really Em should have been doing the cooking she has got a lot to learn about looking after herself between now and September!

Mum is convinced her oven thermometer/thermostat is kaput and I think I agree with her..but you know what they say..bad workmen and all that...Have to put a word in here though, because mum is a very good cook! So I do think she needs a new cooker.

Enough of that...I should be showing you my next Dt piece for Creative Expressions using the new Wendy Vecchi stamps...By the way... Thank you sooo much, Wendy, for your very kind comments on my last piece, much appreciated! This next piece is not so Wendy Vecchi is style, but I love the text and the thought that it makes the perfect tag for a special present.

I used a fiskers template to cut a pillow box out of card that I had stamped using the background ledger stamp and the rubber stamp advert stamp.



I would like to enter this into the following challenges:

"ginger loft Challenge - Anything but a card"

"Craft us Crazy - Anything but a card/altered item"

"Crafty ribbons - Black and White plus one other colour" my other colour is silver

"Dutch dare challenge - fancy folds"

"For your inspiration - inspired by photo"

"Cooking it up with katie - Fun folds, flower"
