An evening at Lavender Lane and more cakes.

Afternoon All.
I had a lovely evening class at Lavender Lane yesterday. We did some embossed resist using Hobby Art stamps including Anna's collection Just for You among others.
Once the panels were made we added some sparkle with crystal embossing power, and as the class was 'Dazzling Diamonds' there were some vellum diamonds and cuttlebugged backgrounds.
I cut the vellum using a Nellie Snellan style nestie and then accented it with my embossing tool. I attached the vellum to the card using brads.
The ladies all managed to come up with totally different colour combinations which is just brilliant. The coffee and the conversation flowed, with many glowing remarks about my cards on the Clarity show on Sunday, so all in all a good time was had by all I think. We are going to do another evening class in June.
Last week was a rather frantic one in the caking department of our household. Firstly Jason made this cake for a friend of his who was leaving her job at Barclay's Bank.
 Unfortunately she had been ill so she didn't get her final specifications to Jay until the very last minute.
I think she was pleased with the finished results, although I know Jason feels that he could have done better. He is very much the perfectionist.
On Friday of last week we found out that the cake being made for Tyler's birthday on Sunday had fallen through. Not .wishing him to have a party without a cake Jason volunteered to make one.
No sooner had the dust settled from the 'bank job' (delivered Thursday afternoon), than we were back to clouds of icing sugar and a bright red fire engine complete with Fireman Sam.
I think you will agree it was a sterling effort and much appreciated by Mum and Dad even if all Tyler wanted to do was snatch the figures lol.
Megan is having her own sleepover party with her girlfriends this weekend and I know Jason has a cake planned for that so I don't think we will be sugar free for much longer.
May seems to be an exceptionally busy month for cards so I had better get back to work if I am going to make a dent in my list.
Enjoy the rest of your day.
Love and hugs

  1. Hi Kim
    Gorgeous card, as always!
    Wow! These cakes are totally amazing! So creative, must be hard to cut into them! Then again....maybe not! Makes my ordinary round sponge cakes look really boring!!
    Take care
