Fairy Cake :)

Hi there peeps and I hope that you all had a fab Christmas with lots of lovely prezzies and nice food :)

Today over at Papertake Weekly  it’s the very last challenge of 2011 and we have a sketch for you …

… and it’s this one here.

We are sponsored by Simon Says Stamp and there is a rather nice voucher up for grabs so if you get a sec, nip over for a mooch :)

So …

… this is what I did.

Once again, these pics aint brill because of the light here and they don't do justice to the fabulous papers I used – more in a sec.

I used this oh so sweet Lili of The Valley fairy – she’s called Cake Glorious Cake – and coloured her with these Copics -

E000, E00, E11, E21, R11 (skin), E41, E43, E50 (hair) , C00, C1, C3, C5, C7, E35, E50,R05,, R17, R27, R59, Y02, Y11, Y17 (the rest).

I coloured the cake by wetting the paper with the blender pen, then going over the parts nearest to the icing with E50 and then going over again with the blender pen if that makes sense, as I wanted the merest hint of colour.

OMLife the papers I used are beauties. Now I have to confess that I am not one for shiny metallic types BUT as soon as I saw these I knew I wouldn’t be able to resist them. They are from the new SEI Silver Valley 6 x 6 paper packs and are available from Tracy at Dies To Die For.

I made the scalloped border using punched circles – I like these as the scallops are big and bold.

A double dose of delish here – 15mm black no 10 small check ribbon and a small black spotty button which are both from The Ribbon Girl.

So that’s the card done folks.

Our Christmas Day was lovely – we all  had a nice time and ate far too much but it’s practically the law to do that isn't it!! We left the house very early and drove to Emma’s to watch Kyla open her prezzies. The look on her little face when she realised that ‘he’d been’ was priceless and she kept saying ‘oh my gosh, oh my gosh’. She opened the mountain of stuff she’d gotten then came and gave me the biggest hug – unprompted – and said Merry Christmas Grandma. I had a lump in my throat the size of a melon I can tell you.

Then R and I went home, had our breakfast and opened our presents. R got me some new Uggs, a Kindle and a new cook book plus the usual smellies etc etc. Then it was pinny on and start getting ready for lunch - there were 9 of us this year which was very nice. I had one minor panic -  the spuds which I had part boiled to make the roasties, sort of broke up.


So we peeled a few more and just roasted the broken up ones and the not broken up ones together. Guess which were the nicest? They were about as unhealthy as you could  get but they tasted wonderful!!!

So that’s me done for today. I’ll be back with some more cardage tomorrow so I’ll see you then and huggiest of Christmas hugs to all xxx

I bet the broken up roasties were the best, all the top chefs tell you to do them that way now. Glad you had such a lovely Christmas.
