I've got a couple of cakes for you today and a couple of cards! I've been a busy bee recently....what with the Brad Paisley concert last week (which was awesome), a London trip with Sheree last Saturday and a party for some visiting Japanese Girl Scouts on Sunday followed by a Birthday dinner for Anika on Sunday! It's actually Anika's Birthday tomorrow, but I thought I'd wish her a very Happy Birthday now! Here is the cake I made her...
Right, onto the cards! First off I'd like to share a card that I have made for my favourite weekend challenges....Allsorts and Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge:
Secret Crafter - Create a scene
Allsorts - You've been framed

My second card is for this week's challenge over at Cupcake Craft Challenges where they have asked to see our best gift cards. I love gift cards....a card on its own is fab, but to add a little gift too...well thats just special!
Here is my gift card:
This is a fun card to give someone who loves cocktails, as the card contains a cocktail recipe fridge magnet! I've created the fridge magnet out of card, which I have laminated and attached a strip of magnet to the back of. The magnet sits in a little pocket on the front of the card.

This evening I had a lot of fun with my sister - we went blackberrying in a local park. We ended up covered in mini thorns with purple hands, but we really enjoyed ourselves and got a bumper crop! I can't remember the last time I did this, but I have fond memories of doing this as a child. I took my blackberries and instead of making the usual crumble I decided to make some cupcakes! These little beauties have a blackberry cake base, a lemon icing and are topped with a fresh blackberry.
Thanks for popping by today, I love to read all your comments.
