It was a very small family party, just 6 of us as it was mid week. Here are the cakes we made;
Charlotte decided for the first time to make a giant cup cake with a golf scene as my son's business and pleasure is golf.
Here is her amazing creation in close up
I made my usual Victoria sponge, as always packed with a whole jar of raspberry conserve and plenty of vanilla butter icing
My card today is the tag I made for Matt's pressie. I had fun with my Distress inks again using some yellows are green to create the background. When it was dry I repeat stamped some flowers and also some butterflies and added a bird box stamp. I added some shimmery blue and green ribbons.My son adores being outside in the open and I wanted my creation to have for a sunny feel. Also green has always been his favourite colour.
The sentiment is one from Lili of the Valley's Quotables.....I love these stamps which I embossed with gold embossing powder. Here is a close up.
