If you want to make a quick card the ones shown above will only take a few minutes. You'd think I'd have more to show for the last few days but I've done a lot of procrastinating. Anyway, these cards are made using die-cut flowers and backgrounds from a cheap kit I had hanging about. All you do is pop out the flower shapes, assemble them then stick them to your prepared card. I want to get all the die-cuts used up then I will have plenty of cards in stock. Another reason I want to get them used up is because I sometimes worry about the amount of craft stuff that is waiting to be used.
On a completely different subject - I was watching a repeat of The War Time Kitchen & Garden, I remember watching it in the early '90s, I loved it, well, on Friday there is a programme called Ration Book Britain, that should be interesting. I was born shortly after the war and I do remember a few things being rationed but I was too young to appreciate how difficult it must have been for housewives in those days. When I was first married I didn't know a lot about cooking but gradually over the years I think I'm a lot more of an economical cook. One tip I saw on the programme yesterday was to replace half the fat with grated potato when making pastry. I'm going to give this a try, it not only sounds economical but also healthier. I wonder what other tips I'll pick up from this programme!
