Hubby's card & cakes!

Tuesday, 11 May 2010
I promised you all that I would try and blog this week and I have managed to keep to it. I had the second stage of my root canal this morning and don't feel too bad at the moment but painkillers might have something to do with that! The neck is fine now, thanks to all those who sent good wishes.

Anyhoo the card I have to show is what I made for Jon's birthday. I used my fab new Forever Friends CD that Jon very kindly bought me. I love how you can create a card on the software and print it out. I used this facility for Jon's card although I did also print out some additional bears so that I could decoupage the image. I know some people may not deem this as "crafting" but I think this will come in handy for those last minute card orders we get and also for bulk periods like Christmas. Jon loved it and that was the main thing for me!

The next two photos are of some of the cakes that I made for the Cake Break I organised last week in aid of Multiple Sclerosis. I have got more into baking again in the last few months and loved it. These are some Blueberry Muffins that I made.

This was my first ever attempt at making Carrot Cake and after all the lovely compliments I received it certainly won't be my last!

I also made some chocolate fudgy coconut brownies, flapjacks and vanilla & coconut biscuits. We managed to raise £184 for MS so I am very proud of everyone that I work with and who supported me.
That's not the end of the baking though. Last Sunday I made more flapjacks and muffins along with a lemon drizzle cake and chocolate fudge cake for Jon to take in belatedly for his birthday! No photos this time but suffice to say they have gone down a treat with everyone!

    A gorgeous card for the hubby hun... and you bake cakes too... they look delish hun.xx

  1. Gorgeous card - bet your hubby loved it. I don't think it matters whether you are colouring in an image or printing one out - to me, it's still "crafting" because you are still "making it happen" and not just buying a card. And these CD's are awesome for making a whole stack of cards esp. for Christmas.
