12 days of Christmas Chicken Soup

On the first day........ A pretty white and red advent inspired image.
As there is one a day for the next 12 days, I don't count this as cheating ;)
I wrapped Hubby's advent calendar (a bit late like everything this week ) in pretty white paper and wrapped it in a red bow, ready for him tonight when he battles his way home through the travel chaos. Cheers!

On the second day of Christmas a Christmas card inspiration.
A T!m snowman stamp, a Christmas sheet music stamp, a spot of therapy while tearing and rolling and a very amatuerish attempt at blending inks with cut 'n dry-perhaps I'll have the knack by the end of the season!

On the third day of Chicken Soup Christmas..... a tree inspired card- I'm seeing a theme here (hehehe)
A very simple card with an embossed tree paper from DCWV, topped with a Tree and more stickles, got to love those stickles!

On the fourth day of Christmas a holly inspired Christmas card. Simply T!m's holly stamp, stamped in a border, cut out and mounted on the card, some pretty baubles on foam pop up squares, finished with some ribbons-oh and some stickles for sparkle :)


It's absolutely freezing! -6C an hour ago and more snow forecast for tomorrow.
The hens are hating it, yesterday only Mathilda ventured out of the coop. It's great fun (not) running in and out every hour to refresh the solidly frozen drinking water. Poor birdies!

2 snow days so far, nobody showed up for school, I wonder what today will bring?

Chicken Soup Recipe #22

Again, better late than never! ;)
A larder full of fresh produce all lined up like this reminded me of the photo of all the delicious sweeties Chicken soup used as this weeks inspiration. I used a bit of fabric on the layout that I used to make hats for the jam and chutney. Thanks for looking!

Very late... Recipe #19!

Errmmmm, it's been busy and the photo is a bit rubbish but here it is :)
I've blocked the kids faces to protect their identity!
Thanks Chicken soup! :)
