okey dokey, that's it for today! We all went out for a fun breakfast this morning...yummy homemade sticky buns; warm & sitting in butter! not too healthy but totally heavenly! Now I have to do a bit of cleaning and start the spare ribs...hubby's hungry for BarBQ ribs today! another yum!

Hi Maria I wish we had rain, but no just clouds, everything is so dry and dying. Anyhow I am just loving this card Maria, the colours are gorgeous so is that image, all this talk about food makes me so hungry.
