Lots of yummy food!

Hello peeps! Hope you're all having a lovely weekend!

Warning...if you're currently on a diet you might want to skip the next bit!!
My weekend has been fab....yesterday was spent mooching around London with my sister Lorna, we wandered around looking in shops and generally having a good natter....then we stumbled across the most amazing ice-cream boutique (yes thats what they called it!!). Its called The Icecreamists and they serve amazing ice-cream, yummy hot doughnuts and fab coffee....this was my rather naughty lunch (I think its lucky we did lots of walking too)!

Today I have been to the Make It crafting exhibition at Farnborough...I was really looking forward to it, but I have to say I was a little disappointed....at least a third of the stalls were non-crafting related!! I have also done a little baking (more about that later) and made some cards....


This card was inspired by the following challenges:

Sweet Sketch Wednesday - awesome sketch
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - white on white (as little colour as possible)
Cute Card Thursday - winged things

I usually struggle when it comes to non-colour cards....I love my baking papers in all there glorious colours! However, I actually enjoyed making this card. I've used both embossed papers and punched papers to add interest. I have highlighted the cute little chicks to make them stand out a little.


I love this sentiment...it makes me smile!! This card is for the "its your choice" challenge at Allsorts this week.

Now where is this baking I mentioned earlier I hear you say. Well, I decied I wanted to bake some cakes today, but couldn't decide what flavour to make....so I made several! I have made coffee cakes, vanilla cakes, baileys cakes and a new flavour that I haven't tried before....strawberry and blueberry! I made these an iced tea mix...I hope they're tasty!

Anyway, I hope you've enjoyed popping by today...its lovely to see you!

Now that's the ticket - featured food!!!! All of it as scrumptious looking as your adorable card Wedgie! The image is so precious and I love just the chicks highlighted with color on this all white card - really brings the eye to the image. You've added just the perfect amount of texture here too with your embossing and edge punch. BEautifully done. Thanks for joining us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!
Hugs,
Sharon
