What a week!. Lots and lots happened. Firstly at the beggining of last week I found out that my beautiful friend Claudia had safely delievered her first ever so gorgeous baby boy Joshua John Fatzinger a healthy and very big baby, I forgot exact weight but over 11 lbs. He is just adorable and I so wish I could jump on a plane to Seatlle right now only so that I could smell him.
Welcome into the world little one and BIG congrats to mom and dad, their lifes will never be the same again. A huge lot of love to you all.( photo shamelessly knicked from Leigh’s facebook)
Then work, and then work some more after work on a wedding cake.
A simple but elegant design, and it was those flowers and leaves that took a bit of time. I was pleased with the result( and the very smooth, flaw free finish wich is important when the tiers are almost bare) and the bride and groom were too, which was the crucial bit. uhu it was>
Friday me and hubby went to see my uber talented Passionette Julie in Sweeny Todd, well all I can say is WOW!!!! the show was FANTASTIC and Julie equally brilliant, a true pro and I have enjoyed seeing her wearing a different hat so to speak.
Then Saturday was spent between work ( notice the pattern? that thing keeps getting in the way of things), delivering the cake attending the wedding service and take a few photos, then went out in the evening with some girlies till the early hours, Sunday was spent with family and recovering ( I just can’t do it anymore, mind you I m not sure I ever could DO IT!!)And then Monday I HAD to clean the house because it was BAD. There bored yet?
I did made a card. It was a comission for someone s girlfriend.
Baaad photo as it was taken just as the day disappeared and no amount of clever editing would make it better but you get the idea. I am a bit tired of brown-pink combos, as yummy and as gorgeous I think they are…. and they are, but I was asked for pinks so that’s what I did. *Crazy for cupcakes* image coloured with markers, sentiment framed by one of the frames from *Frames with a Flourish* and *girlfriend* was cleverly stamped with the aid of the SMAJ. Clever huh? Matching *Sweet Always* papers, pearls and choc chip grosgrain ribbon. Oh and the other colour used is Apricot Appeal.
Ok what else have I got to tell you? Oh yeah, do you live near me? DN14 9QZ? Cos if you do and you would like to see me in action, I would welcome you to a SU party at my place on Friday 27th of Feb. What s more exciting is not only you will get to see and drool over my extensive collection of SU stash( more or less the whole catalogue LOL), get a chance to touch and even use lots of it, you will also get the chance of winning all the free hostess benefits collected on the night, I am planning a mystery hostess party. So do you fancy a fun night out? bring your crafty friend along and let me entertain you( I know you re thinking Robbie Williams at this point, I am too). I am even baking little fancy’s LOL.
