Cooking and squeak!!

Hi! Everyone,

Hope your weather is being kind to you. We are still in semi summer I think, instead of Atumn.
Never known it to be so mild in May, especially near the end of May...phew...

Okay,onto cards...
Two cards to share for challenges, I'm too busy tomorrow to post. I'm cooking for 22 people.
My sons Birthday Sunday, so we are going to have a FAMILY dinner at his house.
Notice...FAMILY...mmmm, well I dont really mind, friends are welcome too, everyone chips in and I'm doing a roast pork, with all the bits that go with it, Caramel flan for pudd...all his favourites, as he is a good son.

First up..ingredients card.with cooking it up with Katie swirls, sunny ,sentiment. [got it]
A Meljen watercan, sunny colours, a Tim Holtz swirl, had to add this bug..he's so cute.and the sentiment in sunny yellow...Coloured with pencils.

Next squeak??

This little honey is for a challenge at lady bug crafts ink and Animals is the requirement there.
Well how cute is this sleeping is a freebie from Sliekesstamps, sorry no link, will edit this for you. Coloured with copics[whoohoo] and a brown pencil. Tiny pink pearls on the stamens, papers from my MME and scrapbox, flowers,and pretty lemon ribbon.

There you go all only took 45 mins, I'm getting faster. I always think I'm so organised, then all of a sudden 'no links'  or 'links wont work' or lost my scrap of paper...BUT
one day I will be sooo organised it will be

Thanks for stopping by my friends...wish you could all come for tea tomorrow...but...well you know, time difference and all that....
