Ohh la la!

Evening everyone....yes another late night post from Surrey!

Well, it was Dad's funeral last Friday and all I can say is that it was a very happy day, I will always smile when I remember it. We had a humanist ceremony which was lovely and very personal, and so many people attended - it was a bit overwhelming really. We catered the wake ourselves, so last Thursday was spent in the kitchen....and I made Dad's last cup of tea (his favourite drink).....

It was a bit of a mega cake and not many people knew about the rainbow inside, so it was a lovely surprise when I cut it! Apparently it was the tastiest cake I've ever made!

I just wanted to say thank you to everyone for leaving me your lovely comments, its so nice to know that there are people all over the place thinking of me and my family at the moment - the crafting community is such a nice one.

Right, on with some challenges.....tonight I have a saucy little card fit for two different challenges...first off Sweet Stampin's challenge is "Oh la la".....they've called for something a little cheeky! Secondly, Cupcake Craft Challenge has set a fab zesty colour combo....lime green, orange, yellow and white. Here is my card....

Ok, so I didn't have any saucy stamps or digi images to hand so I decided to try and make a digi image of my own using my graphics pad. Not sure I'd like to wear this pair of knickers, but I just love this always makes people smile! I love these colours together, its nice to make something with no pink or purple for a change! Don't forget to pop over to both blogs to see all the fab DT cards...they're all gorgeous!

Right, I suppose I better head off to bed as its getting very late and I need my beauty sleep! Ohhhh....before I forget, I've got some really exciting news to share with you don't forget to pop back here on Wednesday!

Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx

Oh Wedgie, What a very inspirational post, you are truly a lovely daughter. It all sounds just how you would want to be sent off!
Your card is lovely, it made me smile, as i am a bit of a fridge picker and yes you guessed it my "Smalls" are a size 16! Debbiexx

Hello you. Well first up I was at SS this morning and I am so proud of you. As would your Dad. You kept at it and you did it. :) Well done you.
Next, your card, very cute, made me smile. I love the frilly, if large knickers. Fab sentiment. Thank you for sharing it at Cupcake this week. Love how you used our colours.
Finally, that is the most brilliant cake I have ever seen and, as you know, I've seen a few!! :)

Ah, the Wedgster! What a wonderful cake that is - I'm sure your Dad would be very proud of you. And as for the big knickers, only those who have been great with child know the joy of humungous pants. Sadly, once you've got a taste for 'em, it's very hard to go back (trust me, they are very comfortable!). How anyone wears a thong I will never know - must be like wearing a bit of dental floss. Enough of that, time to put the boy on a boil wash - his "mates" penned him at school today. I now have a stripey child. xx
