New Challenge Site.

This week has seen the launch of 'Ismaki', a new challenge blog for us stampers and card makers. It is the baby of Isabelle Norris and two of her friends (both members of the Magnolia design team), and involves using a sketch each week as the basis for your creation. Anything goes except scrapbook pages, as long as you use the sketch. Then there is also an extra option, which you can choose to include if you wish. The challenges are posted on a Monday, and this week's is on the site!
I actually did some stamping this evening, with this in mind, but unfortunately only had 10 minutes to spare, so have nothing to show yet. It depends on my little 13 month old as to whether or not I get to stamp, if all goes well we eat as a family then put him to bed, leaving me with the evening free. Other evenings (like tonight) we sit with him whilst he eats his own meal, then cook and eat after he is in bed. On nights like this we try to cook something quick, so I really only have the cooking time for me. (Yes, my husband is the main chef in our house, and he is sooooo good- tonight we had chicken in tarragon and cream sauce with lemon and basil courgettes. Delicious!) Hopefully tomorrow will be better (I'm cooking, so it's a Provencal-type salad) and I will have some photos to show!
Enjoy your food :-)
PS So many of my favourite blogs have upped-sticks and moved this Christmas so please bear with me until I have sorted out all of my links. Hey, I might even change some of my colours and do a new banner! My treat to me after spending so much (lovely) time with my family this Christmas!
