More than words.....

Hello there!

Happy Saturday....its a Bank Holiday Weekend in the UK....a lovely long we've had some lovely weather this week! What a lovely combination!

Soooo....we have a lovely challenge for you over at My Time to Craft this week....we want to see you using your sentiment as the main focus of your card. I love the power of words...especially on a really have the ability to make someone smile!

Maybe a bit predictably I've gone with a baking theme to my card.....

Now first off....please excuse the hand written sentiment....I have very suddenly run out of ink in my printer!! I thought there would be some kind of warning...but no...I've run out just like that!!
Anyone who has popped by my blog before knows that I love baking....making cakes and breads in my kitchen makes me happy (a probably a little bit heavier than I should be!!). Therefore I thought this was the perfect sentiment for a card from me!
I've gone with a pink and blue colour combo, some punched flowers with gem stone centres, the tiny cute cupcake image and some faux stitching. I've coloured my image with my Promarkers and added a little bit of colour to the flowers too.
Pop by the My Time to Craft challenge blog to see what brilliant cards the DT have created this week!
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Love to Create - punches and or dies
Crafty Sentiments - the letter B (bling, blue and baking!)
Simon Says Stamp - Happy Mail
NOTE - to all the challenge blogs mentioned above - I had difficulty linking to you on Saturday, but it seems to be working today (Sunday)....I'm not backlinking I promise!!!
There is great inspiration on all these challenge blogs this week....pop by if you've got the chance and take a peek!
I also wanted to share with you my latest baking creation....I don't usually make cakes for other people, but a good friend of mine asked for cakes for a baby shower she is hosting and I couldn't say no!
I made twenty cupcakes in total, 10 blue and 10 pink (because they don't know if the baby is going to be a boy or a girl yet!) plus the plain white iced cake. Its the best royal icing I've done so far....I was so pleased with myself!
Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx

Fabulous card x

MagsB said...

I can really relate to the sentiment on your card! I like the writing, it's more personal than a printed sentiment, I think.

And wow the cakes look delicious! I love the button effect on the cupcakes!

Have a good Bank Holiday weekend!

love Mags B x
