A Quick Play





Hi everyone sorry if I haven't been round your blogs yet its my dear hubby's birthday today, he's been a bit under the weather but we managed a little walk out with his lordship today and I baked his favourite ginger cake  (wasn't big enough to fit all his candles on though..but I didn't say that LOL) and then my lovely brother and sis-in-law arrived, so had a nice chat and cuppa and then they went home with some marble cake I had made smothered in cadbury's choccy..yes the diet is starting soon..not sure when but sooonnn!!!! because this middle age spread has spread all over my body! LOL...anyway I digress (big word for me:) I had a quick play with the lovely stamps I won from Oak House Studios..I decided to stamp and emboss the sunflower stamp on parchment and play around with my pan pastels and add a bit of glamour dust...you can't really see it that well ..I really need to get a new camera (because Santa forgot!) well off to look at your lovely blogs and TFL love everyone one of you!!! bestest blog friends ever...huggles xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx
