Sweet Baby.

Well so much for my day off yesterday! I managed to spend a lot of my time baking for WRI teas for Wednesday. Today I finished by making fruit squares. We used to always call them flies' cemeteries. Sounds disgusting, I think it's because they're pastry top and bottom with a dried fruit filling. Quite yummy actually. I've never made them before so I hope they're ok. They're actually for the monthly competition but we'll have some for the teas too.

Does this make it clearer what a fruit square is?

Anyway enough waffle. I eventually managed to get time to make a card last night. I started to blog it but my internet connection was so bad that I couldn't upload my photo. So I gave up in disgust. Needless to say I had to do lots of housework this morning and then go to work. So here it is at last. Very simple but I quite like it.

Products used all Stampin' Up!
Image :-  Happy You - which is a Hostess set.
Colouring :- Stampin' Write markers. Pretty in Pink, Primrose Petals and Garden Green.
Ribbon :- Satin stitched ribbon in Primrose Petals.
Cardstock :- Whisper White and Pretty in Pink.
Embossing Folder :- Needlepoint Border.

Challenges :-
Retro Sketches

Papertake Weekly :- Anything Goes.
In the Pink :- Maybe Baby.

Ok that's me now. I'd best go and check up on my DT work and get organised for tomorrow.

Thanks for looking.

  5. Your card is gorgeous Kat - the image of the baby peeking out of the pot is adorable and I love that ribbon too. Calling those yummy looking fruit square 'fly cemetries' wouldn't deter me at all! Vicky x
