LIM week 112 - use beads and some fresh bread!

If you look at the post below, you will see that this is the positive I had left over from the die cut. Seemed a shame to waste it, so when I saw today's Less is More challenge, I thought why not add some free beads I have had hanging around for ages to it.
I'm also entering it into the Die Cut challenge on Charisma Cardz challenge.

Before I could get on with my card today, I was booked onto a bread making workshop. It wasn't cancelled due to the snow and the roads were clear once I reached the main ones, however, when I got to the car park, I got stuck and lost traction! I managed to let the car slide back about a dozen times and eventually by slowing turning gained traction and managed to park - scary though.
I made bread years ago, but recently had an urge to make some again,  so thought I would go to a workshop and maybe get it out of my system rather than get frustrated at home. I learnt a new technique of hardly kneading the bread and a reduced proving time, so was pleased. Here's what I made, a loaf with poppy seeds and chelsea buns.

Love your card and had to have a quick peek at the other cards you made with that die. I watched Sue on C & C as well and oh my one of the pick of the weeks popped into my basket haven't had enough time to play with them all yet.

Love the idea of bread making and yours look so yummy. My other half is now looking for bread workshops in Birmingham :)
