Very productive day

August 7, 2009

Wow what a day I have had today.  Very productive I can say and the kids have totally enjoyed themselves.

I promised to do some baking with the kids today, but first we had to go to the optitians to pick up my daughters new glasses.

While we were out I thought i would buy some new cookie cutters for the kids to use in our baking session.  Well I search around all our local shops, but could find nothing at all. Not even the basic round ones.  I did ask one shop assistant and the reply i got was ‘we haven’t had any in for ages as no one bakes anymore’.  Well I do!!

In the end i gave up, came home and searched out my old round ones.

Now the kids are cleaned up of all the flour. and sat tucking into lovely home made biscuits, Shrewsbury and chocolate crunch, yummy!!

I have now finally sat down after clearing up and decided to have a search through the challenge blogs. Three challenges were perfect to make one card and here is what I have just had play with:


I know it’s very similar to my last one, but the papers and my stap were still on my desk so I though i would use them again.

The challenges that this card is for are:

Simon Says Challenge: Buttons and ribbons

Stamp Something:  Add a charm

Friday Sketchers: Sketch 64
