Hopeful thoughts on eleven, eleven, eleven …

On the eleventh hour, of the eleventh day, of the eleventh month …

From this week’s cake class…



I know my mum would have been so proud of my cake this week.

Growing up we always watched the coverage of Remembrance Day on the BBC, and were taught by my parents to respect and observe the minute’s silence at 11 o’clock. My mum and dad lived through the second world war – my mum was evacuated but my dad got his call up papers …

I remember clearly my lovely mum shedding a tear or two when we watched the ex-servicemen march past the Cenotaph as the army band played WWII tunes and they laid poppy wreaths in remembrance …

I miss my mum and my dad so much …


For the card, Hopeful thoughts stamp set from Stampin’ Up, with crumb cake card and ink, on whisper white with a touch of early espresso. That’s all it needs.

And for the cake, some real red satin ribbon with a row of the new black polka dot scallop ribbon to finish it off…

Thanks for dropping by today
