Hi there blog buddies!
A few of my sweet friends have asked how Sandy got on with his “Chocolate Masterchef” yesterday. Well … there were 3 prizes awarded ~ 1st place & 2 highly commendeds. He got a “highly commended”!!! Yay!!! I actually think it might have been the bitter taste of the “Fair Trade” chocolate that lost the comp for him. I have made this recipe before and it is deliciously sweet … but using the FT chocolate definitely wasn’t as nice. But … that’s ok … he was thrilled! 😀 Sandy has a new girl in his class this year … you know the type … GOOD AT EVERYTHING!!! She is so super smart … so sporty … so musical … so arty … and so funny! Well … apparently she is also so good at cooking! 😉 Yep … you guessed it … SHE WON!!! But … I have to tell you … Sandy thinks she is great … they have really “clicked” as friends (NO NOT ROMANTICALLY 😉 !!!) … they just get on really well. So … I don’t think he was too bothered to come 2nd behind this girl!!! 😀
Before I get going to visit Gav’s mum & sister today … here is another of the cards that I created on Saturday during my relaxed stamping afternoon. It was such a nice play time! And … for once … the mojo was flowing freely! (Very unusual for me!) This was Keesh’s latest sketch challenge … and I was so glad to find the time to play. Make sure you pop over to Keesh’s blog … she has created a brand new separate blog for her challenges … so everything is together in the one place .. . and she has some new design team members to share in the fun! (One is my special friend Lee-Anne … so make sure you go and give her some encouragement!) 😀 Here is the link -> Inkspirations Challenges.
You can see that I have turned the sketch on its side … but it is pretty much the same apart from that! The colour combination is FAB … isn’t it! Cherry Cobbler, Chocolate Chip & Bashful Blue. Sorry … the watermark is a little annoying on this pic! I do hope you can see the lovely detail. I have worked out how to make my watermarks a little transparent … so will try that on the next batch of photos! 😀 I just love those “No Tie Brad Bows” to finish off a card. It is so easy to “tie” the perfect bow! Hope you all have a happy day! We had some huge storms yesterday afternoon and evening. They rumbled through for hours … and I could even see the glass in the windows was shaking & vibrating … with some of the loud thunder! But … finally the weather is starting to feel like spring here! A lovely sunshiny day, today! More storms predicted later but at least it is a little warmer. 😀
Gotta fly … Skye is signing out of school today … taking all her text books back … and finalising all the paperwork! 😦 She is feeling a little sad!) Talk about feeling sad … are you watching “Packed to the Rafters” tonight??? It is going to be “gut wrenching” (as Kochie mentioned on Sunrise this morning!) My girls are going to be a blubbering mess! 😥 😥 😥 … C U all soon! xxaxx
