Crafts and Me Week 81 Embossing Challenge

Hi Folks,

Well I thought I would make a card today while I was waiting for my new washing machine to turn up and it certainly kept my mind entertained.  I thought I would stick to a basic layout and even if I may say myself it has certainly turned out better than expected.

I have used white card stock to make a square card, Love Letters patterned paper, Coredinations Burgundy card stock, Bazzill Basics Cream card stock,  Lace, X-Cut Corner Punch, Crafts and Me rubber stamped image Black Rose, Spectrum Noir Pens numbers 132, 133, 142, 196, 104, 100, 96, 0, 175, 169, 109, 15, foam pads to raise the square middle, also foam pads to raise the rubber stamped image, flowers, Cuttlebug, Embossing folder Swiss Dots, Spellbinders Floral Shapes Diecuts.

Thats it for this week folks as I now have to get going with the washing which has been piling up, so until next week, have a great weekend, happy crafting, do take care, lol

Batch 2 - 7 Crimbo Cards

Well Hi Folks,

What a busy week I am having and still no washing machine which was fixed for all of 5 minutes and stopped again!  So its back to the cards now that I have got the birthday over with and a pile of the washing.

I decided to get back on with the batch of xmas cards that I have been working on.  They are all the same layout/design as before, makes it much easier and quicker when you have a big batch to do.  The only difference is the rubber stamped image that I have used which is from Crafts and Me and she is called Franceska which I do so love, a real delightful Christmas image it is.

Ok folks I am off again for now, maybe a break tomorrow we will see as Mr Repairman is due back again, fingers, toes, legs and everything else crossed this time, take care and happy crafting, lol

Hubbies Birthday Tomorrow

Hi Folks,

Well what a busy morning I have had, but am rather pleased with myself.  Its my hubbies birthday tomorrow and well of course the guys he works with want cake and guess what I am requested to make them yet again!

So I got my apron on this morning lucky enough its raining outside so I dont mind.  I have made a batch of cheese scones, a batch of fruit scones, a sponge with homemade summer fruit jam and fresh double whipping cream and my version of the black forest gateaux with lots of grated chocolate and fresh double whipping cream. 

I doubt that I would see any of it tomorrow when he comes home, so I have managed to sneak a piece of black forest and spread it around on the dish a bit more so they dont notice.  Well come on ladies I should try it just in case, hahahaha!

Will thats it for me today folks as I have just finished cleaning all up and now going to sit myself down with a nice well earned cuppa, lol
