Half the calories

Heeeeey its Friday tomorrow - fantastic....so love the end of a working week....

Looking forward to next week because its come round again....Take That are on tour again - so off to Newcastle on Tues to see them...I know they are down to 3...but its a fab 3....soooo looking forward to it...meeting Bex my daughter in Newcastle and she is coming with me and one of my best friends and her hubby.

Today's card is a fantastic House Mouse image, though shocking picture taking... I did gloss the icing on the cake - but does not come out its best in the picture.

Even when I tried to do a close up - still no better.
 
Just finished some more cakes - so will show those soon....busy bee
 
Enjoy the weekend - lets hope it stays dry...
 
Hugs

Just to say.........Thank you

 
Love this image -one of the few stamps I did not part with when I moved over to digital....just makes you go aaaaaahhhhhhhhhh - most Penny Blacks do.
 
Coloured in with copics and stickled with glitter and glossed a bit here and there

 
Bought a new mini cooper the other day - OMG if you can love a car - then I am soooo in love...worked out it is 27 yrs since I got my first mini - how to feel old or what will have to post a pic of the lovely lady - girl car of course.....Myrtle is her name......this mini has mood lighting in it on a night time that you can change - wow such a girlie thing....

butterfly card

Morning - bliss not to be at work! but need to brave the shops with Emily soon to hunt for a school leavers ball dress....joy...shopping on a Bank Holiday Monday....ummmm not at the top of things I wanted to do today!

Had to make a quick card the other day.....love this butterfly punch - with it not cutting all the way through it makes a fabby flying look. edged with a Martha Stewart punch and there you go
Embossed the envelope
And made a quick House Mouse image gift tag -"Jobs a good un!"
 
Bought a new Mini Cooper the other day - and think Emily just wants to go for a ride in it...taken me ages to work out how to blue tooth my phone - instructions were sooooooo hard to follow...getting there....soooooo love my car...best thing is that the girls are not insured on it...YAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH. Gave Emily and Bex my VW polo and so far there have not been arguments...but they have not filled it up yet!!!!
 
Take care

House Mouse card

Morning
Weekends here and it looks like it is going to rain all weekend - typical!.......

Todays card is a fabby House Mouse stamp - use this soooooo much

Coloured in with Copics and just glossed the icing with glossy accents, bit early even for me to eat one of those, but does look nice
Think I may have a nice early dog walk to start my day....

Enjoy the weekend

Calla Lily Cake

Its Fabby Friday...Yaaaaahhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh Oh How I live for my time off....
Just come back from the gym and thought would post another cake.

This  time it has Calla Lily's on...as always - made out of icing...and AGAIN I apologise for the poor pictures...what I need to do is stop taking them on a night and only take them in day light hrs - maybe when not so tied also...

Flash here shows Lily's...but not brilliant...
 
Need to post some cards - will do promise...but weekend set to be nice, so think will be out gardening and enjoying the time....
 
Enjoy the sunshine and tanks for popping by.

Pole dancer birthday cake


Why does work get in the way of blogging...cake making and card making...would much prefer to do this all day....guess answer is bills!

Anyway....thought I would show you this new cake of a pole dancer. My friends daughter was 21 and I was asked to do a cake for her of her pole dancing...fruit on the bottom cake - sponge on the top


 
I so need to go to night school for camera lessons now - sorry for the poor pictures

 Made some makeup out of icing and a phone
And of course a pole dancer...how an earth they stay up there is beyond me...actually how they get up there in the first place is beyond me!
 
 
Made another cake which I will show soon - promise...if you want to see my previous cakes just click on the cake label on the left of the posting and it will show you them all, and go through them...I have so many that I still have not posted yet...soon...promise
 
Hope you are enjoying this so called heat wave - though it is not in Yorkshire!!!

Penny Black


Dusted off a Penny Black stamp - love this image - one stamp just won't ever get rid of..

Punched out a Happy Birthday with a Martha Stewart punch and punched out the odd butterfly


Hard to see but lifted up the pots - glossy accented them and coloured in with Copics - missed a few spots - but for some reason you don't see those until you take a pic and post it - hey ho.....
And just added a little bit of stickles to the flower....
 
Friday tomorrow and no work - Yaaaaaaaaahhhh - though got a dentist appointment - great...hopefully weather dependant - I may get some gardening done...
 
Have a fab weekend
 
Entered the following
Simon Says - Things that fly - hope my butterfly's count
