Last night I knocked up a quick card for this week's LIM challenge, the theme is FRIENDS. After some consideration I came up with this having remembered an old brass stencil in my stash.
I embossed the image twice, the sentiment is part of a stamp by SU that was judiciously inked.
Earlier this week my new slow cooker made it's inaugural meal, Vegetable Casserole with Herb Dumplings. the recipe came from an inexpensive slow cooker cookbook I found in The Works for £1.99.
This recipe is the easiest thing ever and so very tasty, comfort food at it's best and just the ticket on a freezing cold snowy day. Can you believe I had got to the ripe old age of fifty without ever having made a dumpling before? I'll be certainly making more of them now though.
Did any of you smell that awful pong yesterday ? On leaving the house I asked NM if he could smell gas, as the cat was relieving herself about six inches away on the only snow-free patch of garden, he said 'it must be cat pee.' Ten minutes later we learned from the car radio that British Gas had been inundated with calls from the public about a strong smell of gas which apparently had originated in France and had wafted across the channel. Quelle whiff!
Hoping to get some chazzin in later today, if I find any bargains I'll be back soon to show you.
