Baby card and a recipe

Today I got great news a co-worker is pregnant! That´s so wonderful because she is the most sweet person I´ve worked with, competent, intelligent, funny and beautiful inside and outside, I´m so happy for her. The baby will be born by the end of July but I thought to send her an "Expecting" card meanwhile I think of what to make for her when the baby comes...

This card I made following Aly´s sketch for this week. The sketch is really good because it´s so versatile and the main focus is the image and that´s exactly what I needed. I´m for sure going to use it again. Thanks for another great sketch Aly!! The image is a cut I did with my cricut and you can find the svg image here. Paper is an old one from my stash, the sentiment is a dollar clear stamp I found at Michael´s a few years ago. I like the way this card turned out, it´s simple and yet lovely, I´m thinking to give it to her along with something else but I don´t know what... maybe a chocolate...

Most of my dinners are not a main dish, I thinking it might be my age.... I must be turning old because I can not have dinners as I used to.... I need something more light to have a good night sleep after. So, I usually have a tea with milk and something else preferably on a solid state.... sometimes I have a plain yogurt with a fruit cut into pieces or a tea with whole wheat toast... but last Sunday night I preprared this bread
this amazing and wonderfully tasting Seeded Flatbread is made out of seeds and whole wheat flour. The recipe calls for pumkin seeds but I didn´t have them at the time, so I skipped those and replace them (not completely) with sesame seeds. After it came out of the oven, still warm, we have them with some chesse and ham, we never tried it that way and it´s a delicious combination. The way we did have this flatbread before was at breakfast with sourcream and honey but it would make a wonderful brunch with whatever you fancy on top (scrambled eggs, fruit preserves, salads....), it´s good with either salty or sweet toppings.

I just realize we run out of ink in our printer.............. DISASTER!!!!!! we have to replace it.... soon....

Your card is gorgeous, Ileana:O) Love that silhuett, and had a look at Aimee's blog, WOW there were lots of cute images to use:O) I love the pretty colours on the backing paper, and that little duck is just adorable.
That flatbread looks yummy!;O)
Thank you for nice visit in my blog. I have wanted to make something in grey/black shades for a long time, and just had a play the other night. I was so pleased with how it turned out, so I am glad that others like it too;O)
Have a lovely evening.
Hugs, Nancy;O)
