Sketch time!

Hello peeps! Hope you're having a lovely week!

I'm currently on annual leave and thoroughly enjoying being a lady of leisure! I've moved myself into Joe's flat for the week and I'm loving it! I haven't done as much crafting as I thought I would, but I've done loads of baking! I'm finally starting to relax a little, and I've been able to do some knee really feels like its on the mend at long last!

Anyway, it's Wednesday so its time for a fab sketch from Sweet Sketch's number 99...don't forget to visit their blog next week to see sketch 100!!

Isn't it a cute layout?? I like this stamp a lot...probably because the lucky lady is eating cake! I've just bought a teacup just like this one...I found in a car boot sale for 50p!

So, I thought I'd also share some of my baking...since I last posted I have baked mini cupcakes for Joe's Mum's 60th Birthday, as well as some yummy biscuits that I need to ice tonight. I've also made filled chocolates for the first time...I made strawberry ones first and today I've attempted coffee cremes. I've also done a little savoury baking, creating a fab quiche lorriane and some sausage rolls!

I've also added to my blogs at Wedgies Wonderful World I've added a "free baking paper" page. This was following the lovely comments I got when I used handmade backing paper earlier this year. Please feel free to use the papers....there are cherries and belinda bees there at the moment....hopefully more will come in the future! If you do use any of my papers I'd love to hear about it!

I've also updated my baking blog - Bake & Share. You'll find the simple recipe I used to make mocha macaroons on there at the moment. Plus I am going to start adding my afternoon tea reviews! If you get the chance please visit my baking blog too!

Thanks for stopping by today, see you soon!

Oh, Wedgie, I think this is my favorite card of yours! You did such a fabulous job! Your stitched edging makes it look like a tablecoth! Clever look! Your desserts look wonderful toooooo! However, I am finally on a diet that seems to be working for me. I am a sweetaholic...not chocolate but fruity desserts. We have a family contest going on now. Rule number one is that we only have dessert once a week on Sunday and only a single portion. That means the rest of the dessert doesn't hang around to get nibbled on! Guess I have been the one enabling our family and mostly me all these years! Do have a great week and happy baking! I looks like it doesn't hurt you!

Hi Wedgie, Oh my all the goodies looks so delish!!! Makes my mouth water they look so good. Love your card this week, what a fab stamp! I am a collector of teacups, actually took after my mom with this and love the danity china cups and saucer. So this is just such a fabulous card, great choice with your papers and I love your stitching. Enjoy your break with your baking and hopefully more craftin.
Warm hugs to you dear!

Hi Wedgie!
Gorgeous card this week hun. I love that image and your coloring is terrific. I like the faux stitching you added to the strips across and the main focal panel. The paper it really pretty too. And of course, once again my mouth waters as I see your delectable treats - alas only in photos but still my stomach grumbles at the sweet taste they must have! Have a terrific week - see you next time at Sweet sketch Wednesday for our 100th sketch celebration!
