Well today’s theme on Stampin’ Creative Blog Hop is Cooking Up A Storm – anything food related. Now this gives me a challenge as I’m not a cook! Welcome if you’re joining me Pip Todman from Ash Vale, UK whether you’re new to me or a regular! We have an international theme to our hop this month with the lovely Liz joining us from the US. I know she’ll have something beautiful for us to see, as will all of our design team as they always do! We are also trying out a new hopping system, so rather than click any before or next links or buttons, just hop your way through the list at the bottom of this post.
So Cooking Up A Storm!
I decided to give Sale-a-bration a last blast, since it is nearly gone, and weirdly the Basket Weave folder reminded me of those little baskets you get with a Chinese Aromatic Duck. They have pancakes inside and when you open the basket weave lid, you get lots of steam. Which led me to think of bubbles. This in turn led me to revisit a layout I haven’t used in a while.
Erm Where Is The Cooking?
So while this really does have nothing to do with cooking by me, it evokes the idea of a smashing set of pancakes with Ho Sin sauce, Aromatic duck and spring greens This dish reminds me of my Sister in Law as it’s the only “foreign” food she’ll eat! How on earth she darned to try pancakes with duck when she doesn’t like almost anything else on the planet, I have no idea! But every year, we meet over the Christmas festive period and have a family Chinese and she always has duck!! While it’s a little random, I think it’s also random enough to send to anyone who needs a reminder that I’m always here for them!
So that’s my Cooking up a Storm entry – a very, very tenuous link I am sure you’ll agree. I am however sticking with it, as I truly couldn’t think of anything else!!! Plus I love the Springtime Foils and the lots of rose gold dots on the papers, and I love the Basket Weave embossing folder. So really it was just a good excuse to use them one last time. Today is the LAST day you can get any Sale-a-bration items with a £45 or £90 order. So hop around, and then if you’re my customer or would like to be, hop back here and place an order via my Online Store. It’s very simple and I know you’ll enjoy whatever you get to play with! Soon you’ll be cooking up a storm of your own!
Now, let’s see how the rest of the crew have met the criteria this month!!
