Sneaks in through door...

Is anyone here? Bloggettes where are you? Caique Momma am back in the building! Well strictly speaking I didn't actually leave...I've just had no time and then that pesky little mojo buggered off! Well I finally cornered the little blighter and a few slaps later he got his bum in gear and behaved! Notice how I refer to my mojo as male? Well naturally if its not behaving its a male.

So I have actually made quite a few cards over the past couple of days - I will thrill/bore you (whichever) over the next few visits.

First though a couple of tasty treats for you! These are some Linzer Cookies - imagine biting through buttery biscuit into the sharp sweet jammy middles.... yup they are seriously moreish! One is NEVER enough.

Now as I was sitting in the lounge I suddenly thought 'OMG! I left a banana in my golf bag 4 days ago' I rushed and retrieved said banana which was now black! How do they get so ripe so quick?! Anyway rather than chuck it away (I cannot eat really ripe bananas they are
D I S G U S T I N G!!!) So I decided to make some muffins - these babies are banana, chocolate and walnut. I have to say they were devine! We had a golf match on Sunday so I took these and treated the girls ;-))

So I suppose you want to see my card eh? Well if you're still awake that is. Last week I had an email from Tracey at Dies to Die For to say that she had Anyas back in stock. Well I've had my nose over these for ages but nowhere had any. So I ordered them mighty quick - I ordered at 4.45pm and had them the NEXT MORNING! How good was that? So I had to give them an inking quickly - they are fab stamps!

This little girl said Christmas card to me - so that's what I did!

Purty huh?

Right a recipe 'thing';

Anya stamp from Dies to Die For coloured with distress inks and H2os
Craft Creations paper, Prima flowers and charms from The Hobby House
Snowflake border and snowflake punches from Martha Stewart - I got these a couple of years ago in the USA.

So there you go Bloggettes - hopefully I'll be back soon.

Did you miss me?

Hiya...so thats what Linzer Cookies look like! One question? Do they travel well?? Just wondering if you could fit one in my CJ.... ;-)

Your muffins look delish. I love making banana loaf but don't half get some funny looks on the market if I ask them if they've any spotty bananas for sale!
