Grass Cake


We've got one of H's school friends and his family round for lunch today, so i'm uploading this in between cooking Roast Chicken with lemon and thyme and all the trimmings, apple and blackberry crumble and bakewell tart and if the weather is nice, we are going to take the boys for a scooter ride round a park with a lake.

Today's stamp is one that always makes me giggle: Penny Black - 'Grass Cake - 2343K' and to glitter it up , i've used : Stampin Up - 'Heat And Stick Powder, then Dazzling Diamonds', the sentiment is: Forever Friends - 'Black And Gold' the black and white papers are : Papermania - 'Capsule Collection by Jesse Edwards', the yellow and white one on the flower is : Martha Stewart, i have dug out my fabby (but not used very often, as the flower is so large - hence why i bought the strip, in a smaller version) : Tim Holtz - 'Tattered Florals', i've added : Stickles - 'Star Dust' to the edges of the flower, the pearls are : The Hobby House, the ribbon is : Stampin Up, the button and twine is from stash.  I chose yellow for a change, as to me it's very spring and also a colour i don't use very often.

The Challenges I Would Like To Enter Are :

Simon Say's Stamp - where the Challenge is 'Glitter It'

Divas By Design - where the Challenge is 'Flower Power'

Crafty Little Fairies - where the Challenge is 'Down On The Farm'

Mootastic hunny! I hope that the Grass Cake, is of the lawn variety, or that could be one very spaced out cow, lol. Gorgeous card, the yellow is perfect with the black and white. Hugs xx

A fun card for sure, Sam. Dinner sounds wonderful too. The cow and all her
accessories are colored beautifully. The grass cake doesn't sound nearly as good as your offering. Nice colors too, love the sunny yellow touches.
