whoooooosssssshhhhhh...


Good morning everyone, I hope your all well and having a good week....wwwwooooossssshhhhhhh there flew my Monday, what happened to it...it just rushed by...the cake although a good idea didn't go the best...I made and cooked the sponges...great...then went to make butter icing for the filling along with blackcurrant jam and no icing sugar...aaaahhhhhh I yelled as the light bulb went on...so out came the liquidiser and in went the caster sugar...now how difficult can it be to make icing sugar...bloody hard lol...an hour later after nearly blowing up my liquidiser twice I had what resembled icing sugar...wrong but I made the butter icing anyway...it tasted great but like it had been at the beach for a day...you know that horrible gritty sensation you get from sand in your sandwiches, it doesn't go well with cake...oh well never mind they still ate it but I could hear the gritty bits bless them...well the lesson learnt is always keep a stock of icing sugar and don't try to be too clever lol...right now onto my card for today, using one of the new Magnolia With Love collection cuties...this one is Magnolia With Love - I'm in Love and I love her cute little tights don't you...I coloured her with distress inks and teamed her up with these stunning papers from the Kaisercraft - Pickled Pear 6.5"x6.5" Paper Pad...gorgeous colours isn't it...the pad and stamp are from Bunny Zoe's Crafts...I finished my card with a gorgeous champagne coloured seam binding ribbon bow and a tag from the same pad...I made the sketch up as I went along and am entering it for the Magnolia Mania challenge, Marvelous Magnolia Challenge and the Simon Says Stamp challenge too...Im leaving the cakes alone today and going to concentrate on some crafting, I will stick to what I know I think lol...whatever your up to have a brilliant disaster free day
