Happy Birthday Daddy Wonka!

Well today is my dads birthday! HAPPY BIRTHDAY DAD!!!! & here is the card I have made for him, I have followed a sketch from Saturday Sketch challenge for my inspiration.
I have used the Loads of Love SU stamp set and have coloured it in using the SU pens. The papers are from the Rainbow Sherbet range and I have added some stitching around the blue panel (as my sewing machine is on it's best behaviour at the moment)The "Dad" greeting is created using white foam thickers that I have inked with my "Tempting Turquoise" ink pad. I'm so in love with the stamp set and can't wait to experiment a little more with it! I also made Dad some cupcakes for his birthday tea that was held at the weekend, they were lemon sponge with lemon curd and a meringue topping! They were soooooooooo yummy!
They were finished off with some Easter Decorations that I didn't get round to using the week before!

  5. This is really lovely - the colours and colouring are fab. And as for those little cakes - yummy. Lemon curd and meringue must be the best combination going.

    I notice you often have piccies of your cakes on your blog and you seem to be the queen of cupcakes. Where do you get the recipes from for this and the strawberry jam ones you did. I would love to have a go at baking again. Love Terri XXX
