Twice in one day. Today I made a toad-in-the-hole for the first time in nearly 20 years. To say I was nervous sounds ridiculous, I mean, I cook dinners every day of the week, so why should something as simple as a toad upset me? Well, Mr Toad got his name from a passion developed over my mother's version of, yes, you guessed it, toad-in-the-hole. My past forays into batter making have not been all that successful, apart from keeping the Winter Olympics supplied with ice-hockey pucks, so it was a somewhat scared Squirrel that shoved the big glass dish into the oven.
And the other out-of-my-depth moment was today's card. OK, so maybe the card wasn't out of my depth but the challenge I'm entering is:
I made this to enter at
For the card I used
MFT Polar Pals stamp set
Masked with Post-It Notes to create the row of bears
Painted with Distress Inks (ReInkers) and fussy cut
MFT Die-Namics double stitched rectangle die
Sentiment from the MFT Merry Everything set
Papers are all Nitwits (Winter Wishes sold by LOTV) except
for the kraft matting layers (which are a recycled envelope!)
Snowflake dies are Memory Box
Oh, and the toad-in-the hole? Enormous but absolutely yummy!
Hugs to all
