I made today's card yesterday, I really enjoyed making Wednesday's card so thought I would have another play. I didn't do any colour blending on this card, I just stamped with 1st, 2nd and 3rd Generation ink to fill in any white areas, I also decided to use the Swing and those adorable little mice, I found a stamp set that has a couple of nice sentiments on them and chose this one as it would work well for sending to my Mum, I have been sending a card everytime I have written to her.
I mounted the finished piece onto a tiny black matt and then onto a lilac card base as I though it highlighted the lilac in the stamped flowers.
Lucy was a little bit bored yesterday afternoon and decided that she would like to make a cake, luckily we always have baking ingredients in the pantry, so she had a rummage around and decided to make a Coffee & Walnut cake, she actually didn't make too much mess making the cake and the Aga baked it really nicely, making the Coffee Buttercream was a different story though, there was a thin white dusting over half of the kitchen, it tastes divine and is lovely and moist, you only need a thin piece though as it's very rich with that lovely Coffee Buttercream. I have to say that I really enjoy this kind of activity as you have the fun of making it and the added benefit of eating it too.
I hope that you all have a lovely day,
Love and hugs to all,
