Soup day

Oh my gosh I feel like some SOUP! You know that thick chunky homemade kind that I'm tooo lazy to make right now- HAHAHAHAH. Well I wouldn't say lazy as such- more like ARRGH- I have to cook it??- lol. I'm sitting here in a jersey for the first time this year- it's CHILLY and now I want soup! - funny how the weather can affect what you want or feel like eating. Yesterday I was munching watermelon- HAHAHA- it can stay in the fridge today! We went from 28C yesterday to 16C today! OUCH that's a big drop in one day- and just like a JOKE mail I got the other day- You know you are a South African when - you say it's FREEZING and it's 18C outside- BWHAHAHAHA- yup that is soooo true for me ( and I'm sure a few Australians out there too!)

Well I'm 99% up and running again- did most of my copying over from DVD's and my 2nd HD too- and now just looking for links that I had on my notepads for this month! Still no news on the recovery of this months goodies- so I've been re-doing stuff while waiting for my copying to finish ;-) Must admit I went to bed rather worn out last night. Grumpy as Wayne so politely put it! HAHAHAHAHA.

OOOOOH and Loucee has been making cards again! - WOOHOOOO,

It's Mothers day in England on Sunday ( ours is usually in May) and she made this for her Mom-

mothers day

WOW WOW WOW- girl you have a touch you know that?- Doesn't this look AWESOME!

She used my Friends series- Loryn kit to make it up.

This is how Loucee described what she did-

I printed the whole picture onto matt photo paper, then cut out and stuck to a piece of card, then cut out again. I used the craft knife and made a slit along the sides big enough for the ribbon to go through, thus giving it the illusion of being layered! then stuck to the actual folded card and finishing off with a bow and a few gem flowers.

And as promised- I have a little freebie for ya- I got to play with Bunny's new Templates this weekend ( hee hee Glad I could get em back yesterday)

- these are soooo easy to use and really fun too-

I'm nearly off to bed & am feeling very hungry! Didn't get to the shops today & nothing much in the cupboards. I didn't really need to read about hot, thick, yummy soup at this point, lol.
Very pretty butterfly - thanks Bunny - and very pretty colours. Thanks for all your gorgeous things, Kim.
