Nook and Pantry Play

Good Morning All. Sorry for the blog absence, I think it will be the trend for this crazy month {commonly known amongst some as December}. I do have a funny little story to share... just to prove that my head really is a little crazy at this time of year...we recently had electric gates fitted across the driveway at home, and I am struggling a bit with the remotes - two separate ones for the new gate, and another for the roller door - they look nothing alike, I just don't cope real well with change is all. Well, I got home a couple of days ago after Christmas shopping with the girls, they were arguing in the back of the car - so I pressed the remote for the gate, all good, pressed the remote for the garage door, all good, then when I was halfway into the garage, I stopped and pressed the remote for the gate to close (or so I thought), I then heard this loud bang on the roof followed by a shrill beeping. I had pressed the garage door one instead, bringing it down onto the roof of my car with a loud crash. I have roof rails, so no damage luckily, and the girls immediately went quiet, so it had it's benefits I guess. Anyways, I told Clint what had happened, through fits of maniacal laughter, and he just shook his head and mumbled some comment about how that wouldn't have happened to him, because he can do multiple things at once... okey dokey... walk away.... walk away now I said to myself.

Now for the card part, I was putting together the little party favours for the girls party, the teeny tiny cupcake favours from BasicGrey's Nook and Pantry range, and I was inspired to make a few cards from the cute little die cuts that came in the pack - I tend to do that often... halfway through one job, something catches my eye, immediately making me lose interest in the job needed to be done, and moving onto something entirely different {some would call it 'manic', I prefer the term a 'creative mind'} I made 5 different cards, I will keep some up my sleeve for the coming days, so as not to leave you all for so long;)



Ingredients: Nook and Pantry Favour kit, N & P 6 x 6 paper pad - from BasicGrey; EK Success large corner rounder; Great Friend and It's a Loop Thing stamps, Chocolate Chip ink and ribbon, Tangerine Tango ink, Kraft cardstock - all from SU!

Enjoy your weekend... only 20 sleeps until Christmas now....EEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEEKKKK.

Smiles:) bye for now.
