Innocent Smoothies

Today, Anna & I went to Ruskin Mill for lunch.  The food there is amazing, it's all organic and home made.  Today we both had the feta cheese and tomato quiche with lots of lovely fresh salad.  As we didn't have the rather delicious looking cheesecake we both felt quite angelic.

After walking into Nailsworth and back again, I'd done my steps for the day.  On the way back we set up a photo shoot for some Innocent Smoothie Hats, that Anna's Mom had knitted.  There was quite a menagerie.

All I can say, is that there's always one!  The elephant had big ideas!!

He then thought playing in the bullrushes would be fun.

He then persuaded Mr Octopus and puppydog to go leaf hopping!

After the excitement we rounded up the animals and headed back to Anna's to do some card making.  I did one lot of magazine work before having a play with this gorgeous new range, Winter Joy from Bo Bunny.  I had the goodies for a commission and was just using up some of the left overs.
This card was inspired by challenges at:
Penny Black - purple, cream and brown
ICS - sketch #81
I love this Penny Black stamp, it makes making Christmas cards so quick and easy as it's a solid image.

This next card was inspired by challenges at:
A Spoonful of Sugar - sketch challenge
Creative Inspirations - Christmas in August
Sweet Stampin' Challenge - Winter Wonderland

For dinner we had salad, but Anna made it super special by serving it on individual wooden platters so we could eat it in front of the TV whilst watching X factor.  I did have a glass of fizz with it, but that's what weekends are for.

Crafting should have resumed but we were sucked into watching the Bourne Ultimatum with some blog updating.  Off to craft now.
