My new cooker arrived.....

..... and would you believe it, I had forgotten to take the chicken breast (for casserole) out of the freezer, so what was the first thing I did? I opened a tin of Baxters Italian tomato and Basil soup to keep me going because by that time - 3pm - I was starving!!!!!
Later I had cheese on toast because I was going out and didn't have time to cook anyway. Now I am sat sitting typing in to the delicious aroma of my chicken casserole cooking in my top oven. Yes, I think you all know by now that cooking and I do NOT mix so I went and bought a cooker with not one, but TWO ovens :o)
Anyhow, on to my card.

Yes, I am sorry it is yet another brayered card but I can't help it, I love them. At least I have 2 new Big & Juicy inkpads so there will be some different colours :o)
This time I used my Queen Anne's Lace stamp for both background and topper and the only embelishments are Sizzix leaves and Martha Stewart flutterbies.
Well it's nearing the end of my week off work so I am going to Byrkley Park after lunch for a last bit of retail therapy. Then it's back to work on Monday grooooooooooooooooan.  :o)

Your brayered cards are terrific, I hope you do more as I'm really liking them. CoB
