At long last!

Aaargh I've wanted to make something since I got back, but haven't got around to it until tonight. I am shattered too, so I only managed to crank one card out. Here it is!

We've been in dire need of this card for Stew's parents - they wouldn't accept any money for the rental of the villa in Florida so I wanted to send them a thank-you card as soon as I got back.

I have packed up my "light tent" and "photo studio" (think white box on the dining room table surrounded by desk lamps and you're pretty much there) until we move or the house gets let. It isn't the most compact or attractive set up. So this is an iPhone snap - sorry!

I've been really busy since I got back, settling Leo and Jacob back into their respective routines, and also I bought a whole heap of meat from the wholesale store - I use "Don't Panic - Dinner's in the Freezer" to make the preparation of dinner infinitely easier! So I've been cooking it up. We have Lime Ginger chicken, Stuffed Meatloaf, Bombay Curry... lots and lots, hopefully enough to last us well into October. The only thing I need to do now is a huge bag of green beans. Tomorrow!

  1. Great card, Bexx. Sounds like you've been quite busy since getting back. I've never heard of Don't Panic. Is it a website? I'm all for anything that makes cooking dinner easier.

    1. Here it is! It is AWESOME. We are yet to have a bad meal from it.

  2. What a fabulous thank you card! Thanks for sharing the freezer meals. I'm going to check that out. :)

  3. Great thank you card-the border of leaves is so pretty! I'm going to check out the Don't Panic too-sounds like a great idea!

  4. What a great fall inspired thank you card, really pretty! I'm glad you had a good time in Florida, but also happy to have you back!

  5. What a pretty assortment of leaves to make a lovely card.

  6. What a great autumn thank you with the cascading leaves and fun flag sentiment!
