Golden Oldie

Good morning all.

Last night's dinner went down well...after eldest averted a disaster! I was cooking roasted veg and had swapped them from the top to bottom of the oven whilst the potato browned on the pie and left them with the timer on...Gary arrived home and went to dump his bait bag to find smoke bellowing out the vents at the top of the cooker! Not sure whether there was debris on the outside of the roasting tin or it was just too close to the flame but dinner nearly wasn't!! Think I should stay out of the kitchen today....

 I'm off to join Erika to share an oldie, this week I'm sharing a thank you card made for a special friend. In 2009 I had brain surgery to remove a tumour and Chrissie, who I'd met on an online forum went above and beyond to support me from afar.

Decoupage and papers from Crafter's Companions Popcorn CD, dies from Spellbinders....in the days of my trusty Wizard!!

Have a great weekend whatever you're up to.


  1. What a beautiful card you made for your friend Carol. How nice that she was able to give you such great support from afar. We just don't know what people are trying to cope with much of the time do we. Hugs. Barbxx
