Baby's giraffe

Evening all, a quick post from me because I'm pooped and really need to hit the hay! I have my Godmother staying (all the way from California!) for the weekend and have spent today cleaning, shopping and cooking - including my new favourite dessert recipe, Raspberry Semifreddo, that I made with raspberries from the garden....yum! If I remember I'll share the recipe because it's a fabulous pudding that you freeze the night before.

Speaking of the delights of cooking with fruit from your garden, is anyone else loving Nigel Slater's new series? He's my favourite cookery writer and it's an absolute treat.

This is a card I made for a dear friend of mine's daughter who turned one last week:

Stamps - Gina K
Ink - Memento
Card - Memory Box/DCWV
Other - Copic Markers/sewing machine/SU ribbon/buttons

I also just posted this card (along with full details) over on A Passion for Papertrey, I was so inspired by the new PTI Christmas releases that I've actually made a start on Christmas cards!

Thanks for visiting me today... nighty night!

Your pudding sounds yummy (it must be with raspberries in it - my fave).

Hi Kate,
the girafee is so cute so I'm sure the Miss 1 to be loved it - I also love the buttons and I really like the colour combo you used for Xmas card and the white dots on the kraft - very stylish.

Love Kim
