Well Easter has been and gone. I can't believe how much of the years has gone by. Am I getting old... time seems to disappear. Had a very pleasant Easter break.
Decided to make my own Easter buns this year, so got out the bread maker and started making them. Of course the phone rings half way through getting the ingredients into the pan ( in the right order). It was my daughter... so carried on chatting to her and putting the stuff in the pan..... only to turn it on and suddenly realised I HADN'T put in the yeast....... luckily only about 2 mins of the first kneading had happened so sprinkled the yeast in.... what delicious buns they turned out... I was impressed with myself..... ( but then the breadmaker did all the hard work - all I did was take out the dough and handshape it) I did make the crosses as well - used a different recipe for those this time and it was perfect. Took them over to Emma's after church on Sunday morning....and helped out with painting some of the outside of her house. First time I've been allowed to paint.... hubby always said I couldn't do it.... but I managed.
I did get some time to make some cards. One is for Caardvarks Fantasy Challenge.
I used an image I had from the Internet... not even sure where I got it now and used my Nestibilites to cut the label and the mat for it. I stamped and embossed a crown in the corner and stamped the words and the scroll. Ribbon and some gems to finish. It is for my neice for her birthday. She ues to call herself Princess Sasha when she was younger.
The other card is a mosaic one I did using a piece of background double CB'd and inked that I did a few weeks ago. I cut out little triangle peices and layered them onto the background after putting the focal sentiment. I used a peice of Kwik Clear ( double sided mounting film) so that the spaces were still sticky. I then used black micro glitter to act as the "grouting" Thought this would make a good masculine card.
Back to work today.... need to earn the $ so I can spend on my stash....
Just had a break.... and went and booked our trip to Cairns in Sept. We head over on the 18th Sept for 9 days.. looking forward to it. Plus I'm looking at flights for my parents to come over for Christmas.... they live on the Gold Coast in Australia. It will be great as I haven't had a Christmas with them since the children were much younger.
Well Thanks for looking. Have a great day
