Another Birthday..another cake!

So I mentioned earlier in the week two birthdays ... youngest boy turned 16 this week, I can't believe the time has flown so quickly!
He's grown from this...

To this...

He has grown into such a handsome but cheeky chap...What did I make him?

I love this Mo Manning image I bought it back in 2012 and was worried I had used it for him before, but I upon checking discovered it was his cousin that had received it!

Of course I coloured him with my Spectrum Noir Alcohol Markers and pencils-
FS2, FS3, FS6, 009, 089
TB2, TB4, TB8, BT9, 073
CR8, CR10, DR3

The papers are from Kaisercraft, I even cracked out my old Cricut machine to cut out the numbers!

I also made him a cake...

He asked for certainly was chocolaty!

I had seen a similar cake on the internet, and although I didn't use the same cake recipe I did follow the instructions for making the piggys!
I had forgotten how much I love baking and making the kids cakes, but of course they are getting a bit old for that now.

Well it certainly has been a busy few weeks, life doesn't seem to want to slow down any!
until next time...

Happy Colouring

Too many birthdays...too much cake!

Last week it was my husband and youngest sons birthdays, two days apart...that's bad planning!
So I spent a lot of time organising and making, here's my husbands card...
He's having a tough time at the moment and just wanted to remind him... I love him!

This Digi stamp is called "Trunk Love" and is from a company called Just Inklined.
I used my Spectrum Noir markers to colour him in, these were the colours:
GG2, FS2, CR2, FS8, CG2, DG2, GT1, BT9, and the Blender.
I downloaded the love papers around Valentines day for Free but I can't for the life of me remember where from...Ironic!!
(So if you recognise them maybe you could let me know so I can update)

I spent hours making him a photobook from Photobox, Oh my Gosh how many hours did it take!!
but by golly when it arrived it was beautiful, I had never done one before by so so glad I did, I cant wait to get cracking on another one soon.

Thanks for popping in again to see me, I will be sharing Harrys card soon too x

Happy Colouring

Time stealers at it again!!

Where did the last 3 weeks go?
I seem to have lost all sense of time at the moment, with so many things going on all at once I feel as if I need to stop the ride and get off!!

So what have I been doing? I couldn't actually tell you! I feel like I've done everything and nothing all at the same time! do you ever feel like that?

I did however take a lovely relaxing class of ladies this weekend for some therapeutic colouring, with the Spectrum Blendable Pencils, I showed them how to colour this gorgeous Make it Crafty Cherry Blossom image,

The colours we used were: 036, 039, 034, 035, 063, 097, 083, 106

You could here a pin drop, once I had stopped talking of course!

 Everyone working hard! Erica and Karen were as quiet as church mice...

 Rita, Kirsty, Paige, Sue, Ruth, Erica and Karen

 Ruth doing a marvellous job...

And Paige, doing a fabulous job, she didn't have her sister for company this month as she had returned to her native Canada, So a big thank you for joining us again.

All the ladies work was stunning, I hope it has inspired them to keep going, they will very soon be better than me!

I run this class on the first Saturday of every month 2-4pm at The Mulberry-Bush, Lower Henwick Farm, Thatcham.
You can view some of the other classes that they run HERE
(Booking is essential as places are limited)
