Here is a photograph of my hubby and son taking on holiday last year, it was their birthdays yesterday, yes, that's right they are both 19th April babies!!! It makes it a very expensive time of the year for me!!lol!
Just thought I would show you the cake I made for them this year, its called a Humming Bird cake and its extremely fattening and very yummy. The cake is a bit like a carrot cake but you use bananas, walnuts and pineapple in the mixture instead of carrots. The icing is made with cream cheese. It won't last long in our house!!!
Heather, Anita, Sharon, Linda and I thought we'd put up a challenge this week – Using the same stamp. We've been comparing stashes and found several stamps in common but the Antique Engravings set was all of our favourites. Please visit the flickr site here to find out more about the challenge.
This is my card using the set and I decided to try and make a masculine card which is also one of the challenges this month on the Hero Arts Blog. My idea was to make the butterflies look like those sample trays they used to make in the Victorian times with real butterflies. ( I am so pleased that it is now illegal to do that . I think this is a much better option)
Hope you find time to have a go at the challenge.
