Hi there, thanks for popping by today.
First off I want to say thank you to everyone for their kind comments earlier this week, its been a tough couple of weeks and it all kinda got to me on Monday. I am touched by the support of everyone - thank you.
I've had a lovely evening with the Brownies and the Guides, plus I made a lovely card and experimented with some new baking! What a packed evening! I'll show you my card to start with....The Penny Black at Allsorts challenge this month is "Welcome Spring" and I decided to celebrate the fact that things are starting to grow in the spring sunshine and I'll be able to do lots of yummy baking with fresh fruit over the coming months! To see how the PB at Allsorts DT are welcoming spring pop over to their blog.
The lovely layout for this card is based on Arlana's sketch this week over at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. I enjoyed using this sketch and found it worked for my cherry theme quite well! On the original sketch there is a big flower where my cherry is sitting! Don't forget to take a peek at the SSW blog to see all the gorgeous DT cards.
I love this PB image, I think its sooo cute! I wanted some plain cherry backing paper to match it, but couldn't find any in my stash....so I got creative and made some myself! I used plain white card, inked up my thumb in red ink and set about creating my own cherries! I then added a little green pen for the stalks and leaves! I'm pleased with how it turned out.
I'm also going to enter this card in the "anything goes" challenge over at Simon Says Stamp challenge blog.
Just before I log off I want to show you a sneak peek of the baking I've been doing this evening. These cute little balls are in fact cake bites! I've recently stumbled upon the bakerella website and fallen in love with the gorgeous little sweet treats that are featured. So this evening I decided to give them a go....to be honest I've not coated them in the correct stuff...I've just used chocolate here, but they look fab and I'm really pleased with them! I'm going shopping this weekend for all the correct ingredients, and I'm hoping to make little mini cupcake bites next!
Thanks for popping by today and thanks for all the support.
