More from the secret garden …

The secret garden stamp set from Stampin’ Up!® was perfect for making this set of thank you cards, and a little “thinking of you” card too … 

thank you 1

I love these colours together  – so pretty …

thank you 2

I used the stamping off technique to get a faded look to the images

stamping once and then stamping again without re-inking the stamp…

thank you 3

A handful of adhesive pearls here and there added a finishing touch …

thinking of you

  The sentiment is from the retired “sincere salutations” set.

Lilies for Lily – an everyday enchantment …

Well, my cake class has finished for the summer, so I have a break now until class starts again in the autumn term.

For our final project we made lilies. I had lots of homework to do, as well as class time, but here’s my finished cake – all made from sugar – what do you think?

The lilies took hours of work, but they were hours of fun too!  They are not perfect but they are not bad for a first attempt.

My mum would have loved it, and I finished the cake on what would have been her birthday last weekend – this only made me think of her even more than usual – lilies for Lily… *

Do you remember this floral card I made a while back?


I made if for my cake teacher as she loves Cath Kidston, and this was my tribute to Cath Kidston using the Everyday Enchantment designer series paper. *This beautiful paper is available for a limited time only and on special offer for £9.95 a pack. Also,  with every £45 you spend you will also receive a matching accessories pack FREE. So, give me a call, or drop me an email, and I’d be happy to help you get your freebies.  *
