Peppermint chocolate

Hello Everyone,

You read right...I just opened a LARGE block of Old Gold peppermint chocolate from Cadbury...and I'm going to eat 10 squares...I will feel sick...but wont be...I will feel guilt..but only for a short time...I will enjoy every mouth full...and suck the creamy filling right out of there.

No...I'm not depressed, unhappy or anything...it was a gift...from a dear little old man, who thought I was the cream of the crop today...as the weather is going to turn, I suggested I strip his bed and get all his washing done [not on my job list] so then he will have no worries...and THIS.... is my reward...YUM!

My son-in-laws mother lives down the road from me, and asked for a birthday card for her Mum, who lives in Scotland.She is going to be 91....



This beautiful basket of flowers was a freebie...and you guessed it...I cant find it on my list, but will look again and add the link.
Coloured with pencils, added glitter dots, a couple of butterflies, some layerered flowers, simple sentiment, done!!

The papers are from Prima 'Botanical collection'.

Thats me done, another wee square of choccie, sticky keyboard,sticky fingers,mmmmm..

Catch you all later,

Luv CHRISSYxx
