A quick little card... and a good old chinwag!

Carley came home from work on Friday and asked if I could do a quick get well card.. This is what I came up with.

I didn't get a chance to do it until last night and she wanted it for today for her friend Rachel, who had fell down in the ice and snow and broken a rib - ouch! So, family helped to come up with the card - Paul suggested the doll with a ribby set of bandages. Carley said to use the lilac stripy paper, which is out of the docrafts pack and is so pretty. The wording is cut from the Impress machine and other stuff was from stash and punches.

I put some 3D gloss on the lettering to make it stand out a little more. Rachel loved her card although did mention that she didn't wear dresses.. lol.. Oh well, you can't win 'em all.

So what else have I been upto today?

Well, Martina started off the day by making a fantastic cake.

It's a Marble Cake from her Rachel Allen baking book that she wanted for Christmas. She has made quite a few cakes from it, and this must be nicest one yet. The marbleing doesn't show up too much, but when you cut into it, it is really good. A strange looking cake, but it tasted good! Not that it did much for my gluten-free, but hey.. once in a while eh? Stomach pains and bloating here we come!!

Whilst Teen was baking, we took the fluffers for a walk in the wood. It was quite chilly, still a bit icy but great for a walk. Whilst out, we met another couple of lovely springers - Treacle and Charlie who belong to a couple I know. Then we came across a really beautiful German Shepherd puppy.. honestly, be still my beating heart!! He was a stunning little fella. Those who know me know we lost a GSD before we got Holly and it still breaks my heart, but the little furbabies we have now make every day a joy..

When we got back, I got stuck into doing the dinner for this evening. Again, I decided to delve into the realms of my OH's new book, below...

We had roast pork, roast veggies, home made gravy (which I have never made before), and by golly it was lovely. I followed every step in his book, even though I make a roast most weeks and have done so for all the 22 years of married life! but I feel like I've learned something new.. how good is that!

Now, it's just around 10pm and I've just sat and watched my two favourite programs, Wild at Heart and Dancing on Ice. Poor old Todd... but what an entertainer eh?!

So.. that's all for me for now.

But if anyone is reading in Australia, Keep safe and sympathies to all those lost in Victoria today. Our relatives in Adelaide are still safe and well for now.
