something not quite right...


Good morning everyone...are you all having a fab weekend?...right now quick question for you all, does this seem right to you, today is my birthday and I'm making dinner for everyone tonight...now isn't it supposed to be me sitting doing nothing and being waited on not the other way round lol. theres something not quite right about that situation isn't there?...well all the white stuff disappeared by mid morning here yesterday but we still didn't head for the car boot sale, it was freezing cold and we really didn't want to walk around teeth chattering, it kinda puts you off bargain hunting doesn't it...instead we went shopping for our dinner tonight...I'm cooking Chicken cacciatore, garlic mash, green beans and orange cheesecake with an Oreo base for dessert...sounds good doesn't it, even if I do say so myself...well all I can say is they better make up for the lack of being waited on with some amazing gifts lol, I'm just joking though I'm more than happy with a family dinner and not really bothered about gifts...I thank my lucky stars that I have so many of my loved ones around me to share dinner with...right now onto my card for today which is using another winter stamp although I used it a bit differently...this stunning beauty is by Hannah Lynn and is called Whimsical Winter and its from Crafts and Me...I coloured her with distress inks, I tried to make her dress look like it was velvet but I don't know if I managed it or not...what do you think?...I used these stunningly coloured summery papers from the Kaisercraft - Secret Admirer 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad aren't they just lush and they make you want to sit in the sun smelling flowers (the sentiment circle is from the same pad), I bought this from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I finished my card with a gorgeous coloured satin ribbon bow and a flower cut from the paper...I haven't a clue where the sketch is from I found it scribbled on a note pad...I am entering this for the Paper Crafting Journey challenge, Sweet 'n' Sassy digi challenge and the Card Crafters Circle challenge too...right I'm off to make my cheesecake as it take four hours to chill...oh before I go did you all like yesterdays post? should I do it every Saturday I would love to know what you think...wherever you are and whatever your up to today have a fun filled one

Happy Birthday Mina. Hope you have a wonderful day. Don't spend too much time in the kitchen and let someone else take care of the washing up LOL.

christi said...

happy birthday! cooking on my b-day is almost unheard of. the question for us is where do you want to go. that is a ritual for our family. each quarter of the year someone has a birthday. that day they pick where dinner would be. we all went along, even when it was a cheesy pizza place. it was the birthday person's choice. but if you volunteered 'cause you LOVE to cook enjoy and have a happy one.

Rebecca said...

Mina hope you had a great birthday. Your card is so beautiful. Your coloring in fab!!

Grenouille Greetings said...

Happy, happy, happy birthday, Mina!!! Your dinner sounds lovely. Perhaps next Saturday you should give us the recipe!!! You may have noticed a long pause between my comment on your last card and my comment on this card. Which is lovely, lovely - fab papers but the dogs look like wolves and as I have just finished watching The Grey where the wolves eat everyone, I'm not sure I find the image cute at the moment!!! But my pause was because I followed your links from the last post. Loved How about Orange and popped off to some of the links from there too and then I spent an age watching George Ayers paint the most amazing picture all in brown then over the top in black and white and then colour and each time I thought wow that's lovely, he painted over it again and again and again. I LOVED going for a visit to these sites and I'm delighted you shared them. Hope you had a wonderful day! Hugs, Lesley

CaroleAnn said...
