Opposites Attract

What a perfect day! I've made a bracelet and two cards and of course done a bit of blog hopping.

I've made these New Year cards - one for friends in Italy and the other for a colleague from work who is going through cancer treatment. I've used Shabby Princess Seasonal Sampler Winter - I love the muted colours and the spots and stripes combo - each card has the opposite paper as the main attraction. The sentiment is computer generated with a little padded silver star and I've added a border punched element with some ribbon and a button. I'm entering both cards into Rosie Dee's Challenge which is a free theme and to the Papertake Weekly Challenge which is New Beginnings.

Off now to think about dinner. Last night we had fabulous Sticky Chicken Thighs with Lemon and Honey which is a Nigel Slater recipe. Tonight I think it will be Baked Ham with Antonio Carluccios Patate al Forno con Cipolle e Aglio (Baked Potatoes with Onion and Garlic). I might make a little Zabaglione and serve with Amaretti Di Saronno biscuits (haven't started the diet yet you'll have noticed).

Anyway, whatever you are doing I hope you have a great time and thanks for looking!
