I have a new toy.....

.....its not for card making, but since I get a lot of lovely positive comments about my baking I thought you might like to see it anyway! I have got my sticky mitts on a Lakeland 12 cup mini sandwich tin....which means I should be able to make perfect mini victoria sponges, mini cheesecakes and other cute delights! I say should because my first attempt has been a little dodgy.....

Here I have a mini victoria sponge cake and come cute little coffee cakes!


The wonky tops are due to me rushing (to use the tin!) and not letting my butter come to room tempreture before baking - silly me! However, the tin itself is fab...its got these little removable bottoms to help get the cakes out of the pan and its lovely and heavy (not sure why that makes it good, but it does!!). I'd highly recommend getting on if you are into your baking!

Anyway, enough about my baking....I have also made a card for you today!!
This little cutie is a Bugaboo image which I have had for ages, but I love...he also makes me smile! I've coloured him with my Promarkers and added a little sparkle with my Stickles. As this is a masculine card I have gone with blue plain and patterned papers. I've added a Birthday sentiment created on my computer.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Passion for Promarkers - for a man/youth
Papertake Weekly - Happy 5th Birthday Papertake! - anything goes challenge with an optional celebration theme
Oldie but a Goodie - inspired by a song - my image is over 6 months old and I was inspired by David Bowie's Space Oddity
Crafty Sentiments - Happy Birthday
Pop by all these fab blogs to see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created this week!
Thanks for popping by today,

Now thats what I call an intelligent cake tin. You can't beat Lakeland for their intuitive ideas. Like your sentiment for the stamp and that you generated it yourself. Hugs Mrs a.
