And now something different

Hello my crafty Friends, me again and today's offering is for

Anything But A Card at

Oldie But A Goodie

I used old ribbon, flowers and card stock to make these cute double sided sweet treat holders

Yes, the little bars of chocolate have long gone but I shall keep the little gift packets for future pressies!!

I'm off to join in with these challenges

The Crafter's Cafe Challenge Blog #76 - Anything But A Card
Brown Sugar #107 - Anything Goes

I haven't shared any animal snaps with you lately so here is one of Surprise aka "Jolly Tall the giraffe", helping herself to my willow tree!!

Interestingly Salix is known for it's analgesic properties for back pain and headaches and she has recently been treated for a stiff neck would you believe!! Either that or she had a headache from me chatting to her while we were out riding!!

 Clever creatures horses..... too damned clever according to my Hubby!!

Thanks for popping in, I appreciate it!  xx

What a fabulous design, Sarah! Love those gorgeous papers!
A self-medicating horse!! Surprise is no fool! She’s obviously found the horse equivalent of Boots the Chemist!!! xx

The grass is always greener on the other side Sarah, they are just like cows. We discovered this year that Heskey likes Victoria plums, stones and all, he just managed to reach one of the three in the orchard and has stripped one side - hard pruning planned this Autumn.

Love your little treat packages, might need to give this one a try.
