Two Cards and a Teabread

The card stash was getting low and I have a very brave and stoic friend who'll be undergoing a horrible operation next week.... time for more carding.   I themed them around a couple of current challenges.

  Panel coloured with dusters using Memento inks
Stamps - Hobby Art, Memory Box and magazine freebies (gift from friend Sue)
Dragonfly die cut - from Sue

Blossom - CASology
Whoops!  Looks like I missed the boat with this challenge which closed earlier today.

 All stamps - again from Sue
Vase - heat embossed and decoupaged onto cardstock panel
 Cherry blossom coloured with watercolour pencils, liquid pearls added for texture.

 I'm busy today just pootling around at home.  I had this tea bread in the oven shortly after nine this morning and later, after my weekly dash around Aldi I grabbed myself a slice and a cuppa.

Mmmm, not half bad for a Weight Watchers recipe.

After a miserable start the weather has turned bright so I'm planning to spend the afternoon in the garden tackling the weeds, unwanted deposits from the neighbour's cat and general detritus resulting from the effects of winter.  Wahey...I know how to live!

 What are you up to?


  1. Love the first card ... jolie.... aujourd'hui, journée de travail ... bonne soirée. Bises

  2. I think that both of your cards would have been winners had you been in time! I love tea bread too! xx

  3. Really beautiful cards Fiona and love your green one which actually fits our challenge at Make My Monday this week too :)
    Yur tea bread looks rather yummy too.
    Fliss xx

  4. HA ... we get unwanted deposits from the neighbours cat too ... but we only discover them once Buster rolls his entire body in them ... yeeewww!!!!
    Your cards are gorgeous ... and very professional looking.
    Cut me off a slice of that tea bread ... I'll be there in 5.

  5. Sounds like you've had a lovely pottering day today. That tea bread looks absolutely delicious. Exactly my type of thing. Hope you're feeling a bit better now Fiona. Xxx

  6. You've been very productive for a pottering kind of day. I'd gladly join you for a slice of that tea bread, I'm ravenous after missing breakfast to go booting.
    The cards are gorgeous, hope your friend's operation goes well. xxx

  7. Beautiful cards, sending my best wishes to your friend.
    I love tea bread, can I come round for a cuppa and a slice and a big old gossip?! xxx

  8. Beautiful cards Fiona, so thoughtful as well.
    Hope you had a good potter around the garden and didn't dig up too many unpleasant surprises!
    Wondering what's not in that delicious looking weight watchers tea bread... xx

  9. Your cards are so beautiful, and so much nicer than a mass produced bought one. That tea bread looks divine and I bet it smelled and tasted divine too. Weeding and unwanted cat gifts, yeah you certainly know how to have a good time!!

  10. I've never made tea read. Do you toast it? Or have it with butter or jam?

  11. These are so pretty, and bound to warm someone's heart, you are a talent Fiona.
    For myself I'm still spring cleaning, you complete one thing and another presents itself. But why didn't I think to make a loaf for after?

  12. I hope your friends op went well and I hope the card cheered them up. You're so clever.
    I've been out of action with flu. Proper flu. Only just catching up with life now... xx
