Making cookies and cards, what better way to spend the day?

Good evening all, and how are you this Monday?
I seem to have caught a tickle in my throat over the weekend, which is nice.
The boys used to have a book when younger about a little mouse who kept getting himself into scrapes each time he says "well it could have been worse!"  Have you read it?
It's a lovely book, and the reason behind me telling you this?  Whilst telling you about my tickle I am thinking of that little mouse saying "it could have been worse!"

Today I had a couple of messages to do first thing and then the man mountain, that is my ironing pile.
I did however manage a little craft, firstly I made some chocolate chip cookies, the boys favourites.
Admittedly because there are no biscuits in the house!
Bought ones just seem to last so much longer than homemade ones.  :0

Mmmm cookies!
Nearly as mmmmm as cake!
I can hear the scales groaning.

I also managed this card for a friend who wanted an engagement card for a local couple planning on tying the knot.

I'm getting really bad at simple lined cards now.  Less is definitely more in my world as I am sticking very much to this minimal approach.  It's not the best photograph sorry but the lighting hasn't been great today and I'd already packaged it before remembering to record it.
Having that Monday feeling!

I'm working tomorrow and Wednesday so probably another couple of late posts from me.  It only remains for me to wish you all the best for this Monday evening.
I'm looking forwards to the final instalment of Broadchurch tonight......I wonder whodunit?!*
Do you know?

Good morning Erika,
I knew I smelt "cookies" however I could not find the source!!!
Found it now and they look as good as they smell.
We need the recipe though!!
Have a good Tuesday

Ooopps!! I was so keen on the "cookies" I forgot about the stunning card.
Love the header on it. Might need translation for some!!
A very simple elegant card.
