Just For Sharing xxx

No challenges today, but I thought I'd share this with you.

It's the card I made for the girls to give to Richard for Father's Day. It's quite minimalistic but I kind of like the way it turned out - and so easy peasy it isn't true!!!

What you can't really tell from this pic is that the base card is a
mahoosive 8 x 8.

I got them from Craftwork Cards and I don't tend to use them a lot, but they are so gorgeous. The owl is also from Craftwork Cards and I just literally cut it out, matted it onto black card and that was that.

It is very VERY plain but Richard doesn't like clutter.

But as the meerkat says - simples!!!!

Before I head off for our lunch - we are out today so this lazy pink piggy doesn't have to cook -woohooooo!!! I took these of Fanny Craddock yesterday doing her baking thing (I cannot say her name without thinking of a naughty joke about doughnuts, and smutty minded sod that I am, I am tittering as I am typing this lol xx

Anyway, here she is decorating the said cakes ....

Talk about concentration!!!


And here is the end result ...

Yes, I did have one and no I didn't think too hard about what was in them cos she did lick her fingers once or twice, and the sharp eyes amongst you will notice that there are only 11 when there should be 12.

Alas, one got dropped onto the floor during the finishing process and as I was on quality control, it got binned!!!

Now to you and me they might look like a bit of a grand mess, but bless her, she was so proud of them. She took one up to Richard's mum this morning and to her credit (R's mum that is), she ate it there and then in front of her.

What a trouper!!

Well enjoy your Sunday and Happy Father's day to all the dad's out there!!

Dawny, that child is gorgeous. We've got one like that at home, he loves baking but he hates getting sticky so the fingers never go near the bowl. Definitely not a chip off the old block!

Great card - most men prefer cards without frills so I imagine he loved it.

I cannot believe you would think they looked a mess they look just Yummy, you naughty nanny you, Its when you have to drink a cup of tea made with cold water that you have to complain or how about a cake made with garlic salt added to it, robert couldn't find the table salt so thought he would add garlic salt and not just a pinch, now that was difficult to eat and keep a smile on my face.
Huggles sweetie
