Lazy weekend

Hi there, i hope you are all having a wonderful weekend. Just have to let you know that my gnocchi last week was a huge success. I made so much and was starting the huge task of rolling them into their shapes when Andrew (DH) volunteered to help. Cant remember the last time he made anything in the kitchen. Of course his were way better than mine! It was so much fun and i would still be rolling them today if i didn't get any help.
Had a lovely scrappy night last night (by myself) and made some more Christmas's cards and tags from the scraps. Mum was over this morning and said that she had better go and buy some but i think i will make her some tonight although it had better be a simple design as mum (and dad) send out loads.

These three cards were made with scraps and are pretty crappy really but when i want something crafty to do but don't feel like doing much (if you know what i mean) i sit in front of the telly and colour so i thought i would use the coloured images for a couple of cards.
I also made this LO yesterday afternoon and am very happy with the way it came out. I love the continuous shooting on my new camera, unlike my old one were you only got about 6 frames this camera will keep shooting frames until you take your finger off the button. (i used this feature on the LO of mum on the swing). Everything used here is Basic Grey-Pyrus range.
Now this LO took me all of Friday night to do and it's from a Basic Grey class so i didn't have to design it myself. (lots of layering) The photos are of my nephew Ben who is a very talented football player and has made the districts for his area, who knows one day he may be playing for an AFL team.

So that's it, it sure has been a crafty weekend for me and its not over yet.
In case you are wondering (and i know that you aren't but i will tell you anyway) we are having a Standing rib roast beef for dinner with Yorkshire Puddings (i make the best Yorkshire puds i have seen anywhere-probably because i haven't seen any anywhere) if you are lucky i will take a photo just to show you.

Hey Linda, you sure have had a crafty weekend, your LO's look great and your cards are really cute (not crappy). And for your gnocchi I'm so glad it turned out! I made it once, and tried to eat it , only because of the ingredients I used, didn't want to waste it.....the best place was the bin!! Enjoy your Yorkshire puds, Yummy.

You are such a busy little crafter Linda :) Your cards are are inspiring me to make a start on the Christmas card production line....except that means I will have to think about what I'm actually going to send out this year.
Your LOs are gorgeous...I bet you're glad to have all that BG in your stash :)
Dinner sounds yummy...and I'm sure your Yorkshire puds will be delicious.
Have a great week...not long until the holidays start :)

Wow linda did you stop to take a breather on the weekend. Sounds like you had fun and made lots and it all looks great. Yorkshire puds are the best especially when your in england and the Pommy relatives make them.Although my dad can still make a good yorkshire pudding.Love to see them and even better taste them

That would be 'Linda', not Linsa! I will blame it on jetlag...

Hi Linda,
Hope all is well with you. Your cards are looking lovely. It's getting colder here, and the leaves are falling. Kind of damp and rainy lately. Take care,
