Stamp With Us recipe Challenge

Happy Sunday everyone, this is my card for this weeks Stamp With Us recipe challenge.
I have used "Wintergreen" papers which are a retired paper set but are sooooooooo yummy! I have been using these loads recently and have fallen in love with them! The snowflake and the greeting are from the "Season Of Joy" stamp set and the book plate is from the SU Hodge Podge set. I have finished off with a bit of doodle doodle dandying around the edge.
I have got Mama & Papa Wonka for lunch along with a certain little Lego cake maker so I had better go and sort the veg out! Have a lovely day whatever you are doing! x

A little snippit of the SWU retreat

As promised I'm back today with a few basic cards that I taught at the Stamp With Us retreat. These cards were 3 little extras that were made at the end of a scrapbook class, these cards and the layout were all made using half of Stampin' Up! "I Wish" scrapbook kit. These kits seem to go on forever and are such brilliant value for money! I hope you like them and I will be back tomorrow with this weeks Stamp With Us challenge card.

Lego cakes

I had my nephew for a couple of hours yesterday and we decided that we were going to make Lego miner cakes, complete with miners and rock monsters!!!! The sponge was green and the icing grey and here are the results........
This is a Lego miner complete with diamonds
This is a rock monster who steals the diamonds from the mines.......
This is a fight between the miners and the rock monsters
I hope you appreciate that I had to kneel in an ants nest next to the only rock in the garden to take these pictures as the little man insisted that Lego miner cakes can only have there pictures taken on rocks! So I really really hope that you like them........ See you soon with a couple of cards that I made for the Stamp With Us retreat.

Everything rosie.......

I just found this pic of a card I made ages ago for a friends birthday and I don't think I done a blog show and tell with it........ I have used SU set "A rose is a rose" this is a 2 step stamp set and doesn't look all that in the catalogue but it really comes to life when you use it and has now come to be one of my favorite sets. I am really looking forward to making some Christmas cards with it using reds and some dazzling diamonds glitter........I think that will look yummy! I am busy making projects for the online classes that are starting on 1st August. Pop over to Stamp With Us to see what it is all about. All of the projects are made using Stampin' Up! products but you can adapt them with any of your fave products or stamps, £15 for over 10 pdf classes, live chats and video tutorials in the comfort of your own home is a BARGAIN so what you waiting for come and join in! I will be back tomorrow with some FABULOUS lego cakes.........yes my little nephew may have been involved!

Need help with your 5 a day?

Look what Mr Wonka & I made for dessert today! Yum yum pigs bum!!!!!!!! I wanted to share it with you as this is a great way of getting your five a day, each portion counts as a 1 of your 5 so if you were to have one of these a day that would be your 5 a day sorted! I like to spread the word on healthy eating and hoped this has proved helpful. LOL This is my Dad enjoying his.......

He is saving the bit in his moustache for later............

Sorry I didn't join in with the Stamp With Us challenge this week, I am up to my eyes in it at the moment and just didn't get time to make my card. Please pop over and check out the other cards though they have all done a FAB job this week!
