Well, I have had a lovely weekend...its the first one in ages where I had nothing planned and although I've had a fun month full of adventures I was really pleased to have a weekend to myself! I've spent loads of time crafting and in the kitchen - no surprise there really!!
This month sees Sir Stampalot's 2nd Birthday and to celebrate they are having a fab blog hop...there are loads of prizes up for grabs, pop by their blog to find out more. Their challenge this month is Happy Birthday...and to celebrate I made this Birthday cake card:
I'm not usually very experiemental when it comes to shaped cards, but this weekend I decided to give something new a go. I'm really pleased by how it turned out and I think the card works really well with this sentiment. As well as Sir Stampalot I would also like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Shaped card
Allsorts - photo inspiration - I've picked the colours pink, yellow and brown and the image of a cake
There is also a new challenge over at CES Challenge where they have a "no girls allowed challenge" this week. We all know I'm not a fan of masculine cards, but since I was already out of my comfort zone with the shaped card I thought I'd give this challenge a go too!!
Do the polka dots make it a bit girlie??
Soooo....are you wondering what I got up to in my kitchen this weekend and why I'm feeling a bit like Willy Wonka?? Well, I've been making my own easter eggs! They are surprisingly easy to make and I'm really pleased with what I've made so far...although I think I might go a bit fancy and make some floral decorations for them.....
I've made some large ones....some medium ones....and some teeny tiny ones (which are filled with popping candy!). Of course I've had to sample some of the same ones, just to make sure the popping candy worked and I can tell you that they are yummy!
Anyway, thanks for popping by today,
