snowflakes and soup...


Good morning everyone are you all well?, there's a very nasty stomach bug going around and I hope you all manage to stay bug free over the holidays...I had a nice relaxing day yesterday so I'm much more chilled today and you will be happy to know rant free lol...I'm so sorry about the rant yesterday it isn't like me to get so angry as something like that but I hate bad manners and rudeness...a smile and a kind word costs nothing does it...oh and I made some of my 'world famous soup', our Daughter laughed when I said my Chicken and Vegetable soup was world famous but it is isn't it...people from all four corners have seen it on my blog so I'm just stretching the truth a little bit lol...I think Phil was quite shocked at how long it takes me to make it as hes usually at work but I'm off out today so wanted to get it done last night as everyone is coming to dinner, well I say everybody I mean my Dad, our Daughter and her other half, it takes me about 2-3 hours to prep all the veg and get it all cooked, get all the chicken cut up and add the finishing touches...Phil was going to sit with me in the kitchen and keep me company but he couldn't watch me using the huge razor sharp knife I use for chopping and watch the TV while I'm doing it, he said he was on edge, mind with how klutzy I am I can hardly blame him can you lol...anyway its finished is sssssooooooo tasty and I will get fresh crusty bread today for it...I love family meals together...right now onto my card for today which is using this fabulously cute stamp from Sugar Nellie, shes called Wish Upon A Star...shes out of stock atm but I'm sure she will be back in soon...I coloured her with my usual distress inks and glittered her up the fabulous papers are from my scraps box and I think they are from Craft Creations, they are perfect together aren't they and I love the candy cane striped one...I finished with a sentiment from my stash and a scattering of gorgeous floaty, glitzy snowflakes, I found these the other day when I was looking for ribbon and thought they matched this sweetie perfectly...the sketch is from Sketch Saturday and I'm also entering it for the Simon Says Stamp challenge (my favourite thing is my distress inks) and the Card Makin Mamas challenge too...right I'm off to get my lovely fresh crusty bread for dinner and post a few things...whatever your up to today have a brilliant one
