My very first Ketto

AND I baked! Okay that is not a first, but it is a first without egg.... but I'll get back to that later in this post, keep on reading :-)

This is my very first Ketto I have ever coloured and made a card with. Can you believe it. I actually don't own any Kettos, DON'T ask why not, I have no idea. All the Ketto images that I have in my collection were kindly sent to me by Paula! I had to make a card for a ten year old girl (can you see the HUGE 10), and the request was for something pink, yellow and red. (Don't tell but I thought what a strange colour combo, yet now I love it, and really wanna use it again, lol).

Charlotte Ketto, by Stamping Bella was coloured with my prisma pencils, blended with grumtine (gamsol), and cut with long rectangle nesties. I added a little ribbon, and brads, and a big bow, which I made with my bow easy, and is it easy to make a bow with this little thing! I love it. It's the second time I've used it, I made a double bow on the baby card on my previous post, and to me they look so professional. Just what a useless bow-maker like me needed!

Here are my biscuits, okay not all of them, there's more, but I took a picture of only a few. Just so you can see them when I tell you about them, rather than trying to imagine them, lol!! I like biscuits, especially in the mornings around 10 when I start getting hungry. I don't do breakfast, so around 10am I usually want something to eat, just to fill that empty spot. I haven't been able to have biscuits since I stopped eating egg. Then last week a friend at the office sent me an egg free biscuit recipe, and today I decided to try it. I had such fun I made two batches, I know, it's cause I'm greedy and want lots of biscuits.

They are just a little on the sweet side, but still fantastic! I am definitely going to make more. The recipe is really easy to follow and very quick to make. Even for someone like me who absolutely does not enjoy spending time in the kitchen, unless it's to eat food someone else has prepared for me :-)

I just heard the loudest gun shot coming from up the road. I hope no-one got hurt, except a burglar. My poor Misty is frightened of loud bangs, and immediately came running to me for safety. I am not sure what she thinks I am going to do, but I try and console her nonetheless.

I can't believe the weekend is over already, it goes far too quick. But let me get going, things to do, cards to make, images to colour....
