All My Favourite Things

Me again, second post today - you can tell I'm on holiday!!  For my first one either scroll down or click here for the Golden Wedding bears.

We've had a nice day with my parents, although it didn't start too well as Toad tried to break mum's fingers when he accidentally shut her hand in the car door.  She was trying to get in the back seat and was using the door post for support - unfortunately, Toad, in the front seat didn't realise this and closed his door.  There was a loud squeal and some muted swearing.  Thankfully she is ok but I think she will have a nasty bruise and a couple of stiff fingers for a while.  We had a nice lunch at a local garden centre and then a potter round.  Mum bought some more plants for her wonderful flower beds, dad spent his time looking at prices in the "houseware" department and tutting, Toad bought some tomato plants and I headed straight for the craft section (see, there was a very good reason for taking them there) and bought a lovely set of Artemio stamps that dad is referring to as "weeds" - I like to think of them as hedgerow plants!

Anyhoo, before we went out I made my entry for this months Penny Black And More At Allsorts Challenge who have the very difficult theme of My Favourite Things.  Now, you would think that would be easy wouldn't you?!  Not on your nelly.  Here is my card:

Ingredients for this card are:
Stamped Image - Penny Black Hedgehog Frame

And my favourite things?  All of the above.
