truly Scrumptious challenge 3


The sketch over at Truly Scrumptious is lovely and I really enjoyed following it. For my card I have used hot off the press papers that I have had for ages. The stamp is a gorguss girl, cant seem to stop using these. I have also used a Su stamp for the swirls and the Punch is su too.

I have also decorate the inside because I had bits left over. Now I don't always do this because it costs more to post and I normally put a verse in my card. I have used my su punch again, I really love this punch a very lovely lady brought this back from the Usa for me, and bits of left over papers to finish it.





Now I thought I would take a quick photo of the cakes I made, because they don't last long in this house and I want to do a scrap page. I have only just got back into scrapbooking, card making seems to have taken over a bit.





I have had a lovely day today, the kids brought me tea in bed, with cards and presents. I received flowers, a Cd and new head phones for my Ipod (the ones that came with it hurt my ears). It would have been even nicer if my husband was not at work today, he left at 6.30 and works 12 hour shifts. I felt very grateful today for my wonderful family as I heard the news that Jade Goody died today. My heart goes out to her boys and her Mother, and I am not ashamed to say I had a few tears because I find it so sad, even though I do not know her. It is times like this that you realise how precious life is and how you need to make the most of it.

Hello Louise - I loved reading your post - I agree good health is a blessing and the love of our family, particularly on a day like today, makes us feel appreciative of all that we have and perhaps may take for granted in the daily round of things we have to do - on a lighter note - I'm not surprised your cakes don't stay around for long lol - oh, lovely card by the way !!!! as always - Bridgette xxx
