Thank you ....

Hi everyone and welcome to my blog.

Hope you are all having a lovely Summer holiday ~ although to look out the window you wouldn't believe it was Summer.

Today's card is for the following challenges:

lili of the valley ~  A Thank You
Cupcake craft ~ ...Faberoony Sketcharoony...
The ribbon girl ~ Ribbon

Materials Used:

Backing papers ~ Forever Friends Spring time
Stamped image and sentiment ~ LOTV set 1 Oh So Girlie
Petaloo flowers
pearl ribbon slidder ~ Wild Orchid crafts
Ribbon and Brads from crafty stash

I'm going to end this post with something sweet.  I made a 50th birthday cake for my Aunt this week and thought I would share some pics....

Chocolate sponge with Dark chocolate and Irish cream ganache.  Decorated with white and milk chocolate curls and Thornton's continental chocolates.  The top cake was lined with mint matchmakers and finished with a ribbon and a diamonte 50.

Thank you for visiting, hope to see you soon with some Christmas ideas. 
Hope you all have a fantastic weekend.

Love Em x
