Chocolates from Kim!
Saturday night was my friend (and new downline) Kim's first workshop as a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, and she invited me along to join in the fun. She did a wonderful job, and it was very relaxing not to be the one in the 'hot' seat for an evening ;-).
I just wanted to show you the lovely thank you card and gift that Kim gave me on the night:
Aren't they STUNNING? The chocolates were originally in a cello bag inside the fold out pack on the right. I simply adore the card. Kim made a similar one with different colours a little while back, and you can check it out on her blog here. It is such a groovy idea. Kim has used one of the tree patterns from Funky Trees to create the dots on the flower, and they are all embossed mind you. The faux ric-rac flower stem that she has created using the scallop border punch is so pretty. Kim's attention to detail is second to none. Thanks so much Kim!! (PS. The chocolates WERE very yummy ;-).
Also, while we were all outside yesterday, catching a few weak rays of sunshine, my daughter and I decided to check on some of our little carrots. We pulled up a few and were very pleased to see that they looked good. A little crooked and wonky, but carroty-looking nonetheless!
As my daughter pulled one carrot up she exclaimed...'LOOK MUM! It's a carrot with Dancing-Legs!!'...I laughed:
It IS a carrot with dancing legs!! I love how they come up with such apt and descriptive names for things.
We don't know why our carrots grow in these crazy shapes. If you have any words of wisdom on the carrot growing industry, we'd love to hear from you :-).
Have a lovely start to your week! I am going to hang some washing up and get a little cake out of the oven now.
