We went up to London yesterday to enjoy a celebratory birthday lunch and we are being joined today by our dear family to continue with the celebrations.
London yesterday was so beautiful in the cold winter sunshine.
We're not huge fans of icing so I made a topper for his Victoria sponge birthday cake which I baked this morning.
I had already made this topper last week. I bought a couple of patterned mini rolling pins at a show some years ago but had never used them.
I had a practice and really liked this flourish pattern.
So I used it on my topper icing base. I crimped the edge
I piped and painted the border and made some cut out stars.
Here it is sitting on the table ready for everyone to arrive..
Would you like a virtual slice 😉
So my card today is of course his birthday card.
My card was made for these challenges;
Darnell is having an amazing giveaway celebrating her 5 years blogging. For this challenge I have used Kraft card as a blank and also as part of my focal. Instead of colouring it with pencils I used it as part of my tied focal, the first time I have tried this. My never before used stuff is the type key embossing folder and the grey button from a set hidden away in my stash.
A vintage journey going round in circles I have circles in my embossing folder piece, my button and the 0 of my die cut 60!
Creative Moments something new my new is the grey button, from a never yet used set!
Paper Creator anything goes
Scrapbook and cardmaking, Bastel-truam friendship/love this card was made with lots of love for my soul mate x
Right the family are due to arrive in the next half and hour so I must dash. Enjoy the rest of the weekend everyone and thanks as always for your kind comments and also for the lovely birthday wishes you left for my Hb on Thursday.
Bye for now,
