What is it about Jaffa Cakes.....

that once I start I just can't stop!

I absolutely love 'em, I have to restrict myself to an occasional packet otherwise I think I'd turn orange as well!!  I have demolished half a packet this evening and thankfully I feel slightly sick now, otherwise I'd be onto the other half already.

So now I've got that little confession off my chest - how are we all doing today then?

We took Peters dad off to Skeg this afternoon so he could catch his train home, and everything has run late since that.  Also am rather stuffed 'cause not only did I finish off half a pack of Jaffa Cakes but we also had homemade pizzas and now I can hardly move!  Diet, what diet?

So onto my card, this is the companion stamp to the one I used yesterday - which by the way I have to say a great big thank you for all the lovely compliments, they are very appreciated.

The card, it's for my friend's little boy - the one who is Emily's best friend.  When I asked if she thought he looked like Ryan, she gave the card careful consideration and said 'no - he's too short'.

Front shot:

  Detail shot of image:

I used:

The Greeting Farm stamp: Happy Days - coloured with my Promarkers.  The die-cut out with and mounted onto nestie shapes.
The papers are all Basic Grey Archaic, and I've used my last bit of the dinosaur papers from it!
Ribbons and number 5 from my stuff
Sentiment is Craftwork cards

Oh and do you want to see the state making that card yesterday left my dining room in?  Look at this:

Off now to try and digest this pizza and Jaffa Cakes and wander around lots of blogs!

See you soon.

A challenge, or two:

Sketch Saturday: week #196 ( I rotated the sketch - hope you can still see it)

Cupcake Craft Challenges: Boys and their toys

Aud Sentiments Challenge: Challenge 49 - Happy Birthday

Thank goodness I am dieting as I don't need to discover any others foods I like!

The dining room will tidy up...the bright side of that messy bit is that at least you have a nice, big dining room table to craft at!

Wishcraft said...

Fab card Sarah. I love this image, he's so cute, perfect papers too :o)

Dex (he's 4) likes looking at my cards and he's usually quite enthusiastic about them, but he once studied one that I'd been fairly happy with and said 'well, it's not exactly perfect is it?' lol! Lisa x

An Occasional Genius said...

Oh blimey, I've missed so much hon! Glad to hear you've come to your senses about your cards, they are fabulous!

Such a cute card, I remember DQ12 coming out with a similar sort of comment when she was a bit younger, you gotta laugh at how they see the world!

Only half a pack of Jaffa cakes?!

Hugs xx

xxxtglxxx said...

Too Short!! LOL :)

This is a fabby boys card, great colouring and papers too hun!

......and yes there is a story around my dog being called Kevin....

I remember hearing on the radio several years ago that following a survey it was revealed that the most popular name for a best mate was 'Kevin'.

It said everyone wants a friend called 'Kev', as it sounds like he would be a top bloke, handy to know, always buys his round and always help you out in a crisis... LOL!! :) So I thought I'd have some of that.

My other dog is called Oliver (much more normal) but my shortlist of names for our next dog is 'Nigel', 'Hector' or 'Dennis' (as in menace!) ;)
