Next Door Again. . . . . . . .

Good morning everybody. Hope you are enjoying your weekend.

Thank you so much for your kind comments about my new venture. I'm itching to "go live" but I'm still waiting for the majority of my stock order to arrive (Yes, I am waiting on media plates Jan and Anne lol!!!
I've got some stock but I'm sure that it will be the naffest shop ever if I went live with a few dies and some ribbon lol!!!

Building the site has been a real labour of love, the amount of time it has taken. I don't think I have spent so much time on a computer since I was in the Civil Service lol!!!

Now, as no one owned up to being fed up with seeing the samples I made for John, I'm showing another one of the many I have left to show. . . . . . I have the EEC sample mountain hahaha!!!

White and pink card
John Next Door Butterfly Corners stamps
Memento Dewdrop inks
Teeny bling

Once again, I did a bit of dib dabbage on the stamp and stamped it to form a circle.
I had to laugh when I told John I loved this rose stamp and he told me it was pine cones, hahaha!!! I should have gone to Specsavers lol!!
That's why I did the "flowers" in pink and peach. He must have thought I'd gone nuts but I think you can get away with it looking rose-ish. . . . . . .sort of. . . . .

Now, onto tarts.
Sorry if Kate got you salivating, though I'm not sure its salivating or just general dribbling with Maureen, at the mention of a tart in her last comment.

I had emailed Kate a photo of a tomato and feta tart I had made and I think she would have liked a slice. We had a glut of cherry tomatoes, red and yellow so I had to come up with a plan for them. I had frozen puff and a block of feta so off I went and this was the result. . . 

Apologies for the un-Nigella photo but I snapped it on my phone. It wasn't very low carb but it was very tasty. I roasted the tomatoes first, sprinkled with garlic powder and Italian herbs, then popped them on the pastry sheet with the feta. No other seasoning as feta is quite salty. 

Anyhoo, I shall sign off for now. I will have custody of the remote control this afternoon for the GP so all's right with the world.

Enjoy your Sunday.

P.s. . . . . . There are still 2 places available on this weeks Ansty Coventry workshop as, sadly, two ladies may not be able to go due to family illness. Please contact myself or John if you would like to fill the spots.


  1. Love the shades of this one Ang even if it is pine cones, haha,
    Enjoy the go, so long as Vettil doesn win.
    Your tart looks good but I don't like toms or cheese!!!!

  2. Of course they are roses Ang and I have got my glasses on! Tell John you have just made his stamp more versatile. I think it makes a great card.
    Good luck with your venture.

  3. Hi there Ang, well it looks pretty much a rose wreath, but in crafting it's what you want it to be. Anyway it's very pretty and the design is brilliant, lovely colours too.
    Enjoy your F1 today, my countdown has started, have a lovely day Kate x

  4. I thought roses when I looked at your card. It's great!

  5. PS tart looks delicious. I have a couple of friends who do this - I always forget to!

  6. This just shows the versatility of John's stamps, Ang! They look like roses to me. Beautiful card.
    We are at a car rally in Stamford today so won't see the GP. Enjoy.

  7. Missed Friday's post Ang. So the news is out and you can stop biting your tongue now! Congrats. A great card too - but I need to change my specs too obviously ... lol! Christine xx

  8. So pretty is this card and the tart looks so yummy .xx [aNNie]

  11. Hi Ang, beautiful card with a great colour combination. I wish I lived nearer then I would come to johns class. All the best Janice xx

  12. Hi Ang, such a pretty card, and yes you can get away with it as the way you have stamped it it looks like roses.
    The tart look so good, its a good job I don't live nearer as I'd have to add it to the kidnap list.
    Enjoy the G.P,

  13. Gorgeous card Ang and until you said I also thought it looked like flowers. Well that's what I shall use it as as well as a pine one wreath. Very versatile stamp. Like the look of the tart as well. Thank you for sharing. Wish I could get to Coventry but it's a bit far and also family are returning on Friday night from a 4week holiday. I suspect it will be early Saturday and I will probably be needed to help with transport.

  14. It totally looks likes flowers, just means there's even more versatility and therefore value in the stamp. Your tart looks yummy! I loooove roasted cherry tomatoes. Enjoy the GP and keep well x

  15. Hi Mrs D,Well just goes to show beauty is in the eye of the beholder,they certainly could be roses,and I bet John thinks so to.Lovely. The tart looks good but as I am a coeliac I can't have gluten so have to miss out on all things pastry etc.,Stay healthy Love Barbara D xx

  16. Hi Ang,
    Lovely card, and I agree they look like roses. Tart looks good enough to eat. lol

  17. Hi Ang

    Love this delicate looking card and when I read the bit about pine cones I had to go back and take another look as I too thought they were roses!

    I did get a tad worried when I read 'tarts', sharp intake of breath, but your tart looked delicious

    Enjoy the GP.... I'm sure you will

  18. Hi Ang,
    what a very beautiful card, and such a lovely design.
    Who would have thought pine cones could look so much like roses. LOL.
    Seriously I think they look very super and very pretty.
    Your stamping is ace as your don't have a stamping platform.
    Tart looks yummy not sure about feta cheese never tasted it.
    Give me good old cheddar anyday, and especially very mature one.
    Hope you enjoyed the GP.
    Lots of crafty love. Jenny L.

  19. Hello Ang,
    A beautiful card and I didn't realise it was pine cones on the wreath either. Mind you I've only seen it in photos . Good versatile stamp then! Love the colours you have used too!
    Your tart looks pretty tasty as well!
    Love Myra xxx

  20. Gorgeous card and yes I suppose if you close one eye and squint they could look like risers but there again I need to go to Specsavers too!
    I didn't know you were in the Civil Service - me too!

  21. Your tart looks delicious! And your card so very pretty!!
    Sandy xx

  22. Hello Ang,
    Love the card, but I obviously need to have my cataracts redone as it looks like roses to me.
    You do make a tasty tart - and take that any way you like ha ha. I can see Yorks butterfly and I will have to hire a very large transporter for the wisty and tart heist!!
    Hope you are well, I see LH won the race, that's enough to give you a set back.
    Maureen x

  23. A beautiful card I would have never known they were pine cones they look like roses to me. A great idea for the tomatoes I have them everywhere at the moment xxx

  24. Hi Ang! The card is pretty but the Feta tomato tart really caught my eye. Mouth was watering looking at it. Have a great day!
