Diamond Anniversary Cake


Evening.....sorry I am getting boring posting cakes - will try and post some cards soon - promise
- Made this Diamond Anniversary card for this old man in my village that I sometimes go dog walking with - he sits at his window most mornings I am sure waiting for me...its lovely really - 84yrs young and celebrated 60 yrs of marriage - 60 YEARS!!!!!!!!...blimey - deserves a medal not a cake!

So I just made him a little fruit cake and decorated it with some roses and little diamonds - he filled up and was so made up...made it all worth while really.....
Just a spray of icing roses and some ivy leaves put together...
 
Enjoy the evening - Em off to Leeds Festival on Wed - why oh why would you - a festival in a muddy field with millions of smelly muddy people - shared smelly toilets...its bad enough doing her washing when she comes back never mind anything else....My dad is picking her up on Friday to take back to good old Grandma and Granddad's for a shower and bacons and sausage sandwich.....
Enjoy whatever you are doing

50th flower cake

Happy Sunday - raining like mad here today - but thankfully Archie and I went our walk earlier - went blackberry picking down the lanes near me - so blackberry and apple crumble for tea it is!.

Had a nice weekend - Sat - Gym in the morning - and then in the afternoon went dog walking with some friends over to Harrogate around the back of the show ground - great place to let yr dog off to run for miles - though Archie was not on his best behaviour....but soon forgotten as I love him so much...

Showing today a cake made for a 50th wedding Anniversary...Icing flowers I made here if you are unable to tell are Roses, Carnations, Freshia's and Stephanotis. Love making icing flowers - but they take sooooooooo long....



 
Mother in law here for tea - so need to vac and get sorted...food all prepared for my Sunday roast - chicken this week -sooooooo love a Sunday roast....
 
Enjoy yr Sunday - hope its not raining with you
Hugs

pearl anniversary cake

Me again - 2 posts in a week - unheard of I know - well at the moment it is...
Sorry another cake - will do some cards soon - promise..
Made this for a peal wedding anniversary for a lady at works parents....Love making icing roses - think they are my fave flower to make...............

Close up of the roses - make in petal paste so you can get a fine petal - rather than thick sugar paste ones
Then added pearls to the side and made a pattern going round
Simple design - but I think effective - Do you?

Hope you have a cracking weekend...and the sun shines...off to the Dog and Gun tomorrow night at Knayton - near Northallerton - ever up that way I cannot recommend it enough - fantastic!...

Hugs

Long time no see

Hi there - I know....I know...sorry..
 
Thought I would show a card and a fabby Bluetit going into a nesting box in my garden....
 
 
 
 
 
Love this time of year - apart from when you want a lie in bed - which I never do really and it is sooooo nosiy...but nice though.
 
I am also showing a card made for Emily doing her theory driving test - thankfully she passed - just the test to go now.... 
 

Did a bit of photoshop to add the txt...crackled the leaves and added some stickles here and there...and then inside found some stickers which I just added...
Will try soon to get round some blogs - honest......

I know - I am sorry

Better late though than never I say........sorry been a way for a while - work again is getting in the way......though going to make a concerted effort for me time....so much so started a gym...and totally love it...not weights and power lifting - but I go to the classes...they motivate you and make you do just that little bit more...and yup - it's working - so just got to stick with it now.......

Made some cards and tags to show you

 Just added some blossom to the tree to make it a bit more girlie

 And then needed some tags so my scrap card once again came in handy
 and added some punched out butterfly's to this one
So sorry if you thought I had left.....Naaaaaaahhhhhh......just need to get round as many of you all now that I can
Happy Bank Holiday Monday to you in the UK
Entering over at Sassy Cheryls - show me Thurs - sorry been away for so long
