Just keep swimming.....

Hi everyone, here is my latest ‘Less is More’ card.
The theme this week is.....



"Makes me smile!
It's simply that... something that makes you smile.
 It could be something cute, pretty, humorous, or merely a technique
 which satisfies you and makes you pleased with your finished article.
SO... lots of scope, but we'd like you to tell us
 the reason for your choice!"
 
 
 
Wow what a fabulous challenge, I hope you
will all join in this week too (smiles).


I used this cute freebie digi image from TAWS,
Sorry just cannot think what TAWS stands for my
brain isn’t in gear today I fear. Blogger is playing up
too and I have had to rewrite this three times already
grrrrrrrrr!!!!




 Now adding the freebie stamp is from
‘The Alley Way Stamps’ TAWS.



Anyway these cute fishes just make me smile every time
I look at them. Hope they give you a smile today too :)
The sentiment says ‘Just keep swimming’..... I think it’s
very apt for a lot of us isn’t it.




A very Happy Easter to you all !
I have just started eating my yummy Easter egg
so diet out of the window for this week I fear lol.


A big welcome to my three latest followers also, welcome aboard.



Swimming, CAS, fish, distress inks



Ps. Sorry I am late this week with my LIM card
but we had our son and his gorgeous babies over
yesterday and I spent most of it cuddling my
beautiful granddaughter Lana...happy days !

I made some homemade bread and soup and they
all said it was the best they had ever tasted. Roasted
red onion and balsamic vinegar bread, I threw lots of seeds
and parmesan cheese in. 


The soup was ‘Lentil and coconut’ I used some coconut oil
(expensive but worth it), lemongrass, fresh lemon and lots
of yummy spices. Recipe HERE
