Here is a tantalising glimpse of the blog candy that is winging it's way to Nicola who won the guessing game. I hope she likes it, and it is the stuff in the basket, not the stuff round the basket on my messy work space!
Also I had a very thin box which was about A4 size and I managed to get everything in.
I made this card for the chocolate challenge on Crafts by Carolyn forum. It is one of my new stamps, mounted on some hand made paper, mounted on the English Paper Company paper. The card is chocolate brown, with an embossed scallop, and edged with Papermania sticky ribbon.
Hanging from the stamped image are two brass charms - knife and fork.
The Matching Birthday word is also Papermania but is not sticking well.
I inked the edges of the stamped image with pink ink and the pink waffle paper has a pink Crafts by Carolyn brad in each corner.
What a week (or two), we went out for a family meal to a new Indian restaurant that sounded promising. Starters were beautifully presented, my main meal was Tandoori Chicken which was on the bone, although it didn't mention this on the menu.
First of all it was later than everyone elses, and the rice and veg was all there. Then it arrived, and I ate a little but was finding it difficult to get any so started cutting it off the bone and it was completely raw in the middle, and I mean uncooked, not just pink.
That put me off my meal completely and I didn't eat another thing, they apologised profusely and gave me a bag of it to take home promising it was 100% cooked! I didn't eat it, and I will never go back. I am just thankful that I didn't get Salmonella poisoning.

It is time I responded to this.
Here are the questions and answers:
1. If a movie was being made of your live who would you like to be case to play yourself and why?
I can never remember actors names, well not female film ones apart from Kiera Knightly who is not like me, maybe Dawn French would be more like me but she is funny, I am not!
2. You are spending a whole month on a desert island for charity, and you have to choose your favourite celebrity to spend the first two weeks with you and & your least favourite clebrity to spend the second two weeks with, who would they be and why?
I think Jonathon Ross would spend the first two weeks with me, he is very entertaining.
I don't want to spend the second two weeks with anyone I don't like!
3. What are your 3 favourite crafting products?
I would have to say card, stamps and ink right now.
4. If you could invent something what do you think it would be?
A robot cleaner to clean the bathrooms (oh no I forgot that is me!)
5. What are the last 3 books that you read?
Toast by Nigel Slater,
The Colour of Magic by Terry Pratchett,
Painted House by John Gresham
6, QVC or Create and Craft?
Neither - I try and avoid them both
7. What is your claim to fame?
George Baker (Inspector Wexford) once said Good Afternoon to me one lunchtime when I walking along trying to work out where I knew him from (didn't imagine it was the TV!) He was collecting his dry cleaning.
