Sorry for missing last weeks post and return visits but the pay the bills job has stepped up a gear and meant precious little time for crafting let alone blogging.
This week saw my ATC's from the 6th Anniversary swap arrive.
The top two are from Bev in Canada (www.bunnysgirls.blogspot.ca) she said she couldn't decided which to send so sent both! Thanks Bev, I particularly like the saying on the butterfly one "We delight in the beauty of the butterfly but rarely admit the changes it has gone through to achieve that beauty"
The bottom one is from Jill and though it doesn't show it in the photo it has an amazing background glitter to the card, thanks ladies.
So, my desk is a cheat as it is empty (apart from actual work) but the kitchen is filled with the heady scent of Elderflower Cordial making.
I make several batches each late spring and it signifies to us that summer is almost upon us. It is great just with water, hot or cold, nice in a G&T, cider or even added to stewed fruit. I also give bottles as gifts (I took one to the WOYWW crop for LLJ and Julia) and it keeps remarkably well. It takes 5 days to steep, but it is worth it.
My "Man Bites Dog" cards this week (if you remove the final S off the word Stuns) reads like a headline from one of the red top newspapers!!!
I hope you all have a fabulous, crafty week.
