Crop LO's and a Happy Birthday

I had a lovely day at the Frozen North crop yesterday and managed to finish two LO's probably something of a record as I probably spend too much time chatting

The first is my dad and although he is now in a care home becoming increasingly frail with Alzheimer's he has a real love of chocolate and each piece gets the look of delight shown in the photo.

This one is for weekly challenge set my the Dizzy Dots on UKS. A lovely challenge thank you.
Part of the challenge was to include a group of something. I chose the cupcakes my sons fiance made for their engagement party last weekend and they were delicious as well as very pretty

And finally Happy Birthday to Heather my friend and team leader on the Rik Rak Ravers. Have a lovely day Heather .

This is the card I made for her and my first attempt at an easel card.

Recipe Tag Swap and a couple of cards

Well I've finally finished the recipe tags for the Rik Rak Ravers Recipe Swap that Heather has kindly organised. I'm really looking forward to to seeing what everyone has done and getting some nice recipes to try. I did a quite healthy Warm Chicken Salad

Ive also been doing a couple of cards today. The first is a tag card and its taken me nearly all day to do. Problem being that I played around far too much and kept going on UKS and chatting and then there was the Gottacraft Sale and I had to have a little spend - far too many distractions

The final card is for my friend Heather whose birthday is on Sunday. Its my first attempt at an easel card and I was quite pleased with it. I will post a picture on Sunday.

Well its been long time

The first LO is from a recent Sarahs card kit and is scraplifted from a LO by Rachael Elliot. I really like her LO's. The photo is my Granddaughter feeding the birds while on holiday in America last year

This is me at the Wailing Wall in Jerusalem. It was a wonderful place to visit and quite surreal

This is my LO for the Sketch and Scrap group I am part of. I used Gottacraft January Kit. Not sure I'm totally happy with my LO but I love the black and red in this kit

and finally my Granddaughter again playing with her chocolate Lab - their favourite game where she throws the ball as far away as she can and then runs and hides and Tana has to find her. Trouble is when Abby is at school Tana still goes looking for hunting in all the bushes to no avail.
Thanks to my friend Heather for giving me a boot up the backside to get blogging again. Promise it wont be so long next time
