Now that's what I call a rock monster cake!

You may have seen my post a few weeks ago with some rock monster cakes, although Kyle thought they looked okay.......he didn't think they looked like rocks!!!! So here are rock monster cakes take two....I feel like a bad auntie not thinking to make actual rock cakes first time round! He was much happier with this attempt. Hopefully the Lego miners can catch the rock monsters this time and I won't have to recreate the battle scene again out of cake! The things we do eh........

Happy Birthday Gramps!

It was my Gramps 95th birthday last week, he still lives on his own and only gave up driving in January! My Mum held a little tea party for him which he LOVED so I thought I would share with you a pick of the cupcake tower I made for him! The cup cakes were vanilla sponge with chocolate frosting (lots of it) topped with flakes or crunchies and finished off with sparklers!......ohhhhhh they were delish......although I do say so myself! Most importantly Gramps loved them and had never seen anything like it before! So mission accomplished. I hope your mouths are watering..............

Cheers to you!

Morning everyone, onto the last project that I made for the online classes. This was aimed at the men in our lives! Well for the man in my life, Mr Wonka or Beer Monster as he turns into on occasions! LOL This is using the "Cheers To You" Stamp set and "Junior Varsity" papers. In the class we made a bottle bag and 3 different cards. All of the projects came with step by step photo instructions and were easily achievable to re-create. I hope that you have enjoyed your little peeks, Natalie & Monica came up with some wonderful projects including a bird house, shoe gift box, handbag, sampler and a pop up, flip out and stand up mini book! Although the interactive parts of the online classes have now finished the site is available for another 2 weeks so it isn't too late to join in and down load the 10 sets of pdf picture instructions and watch the technique videos and view the AMAZING online gallery from all of Stamp With Us Summers members. Thank you everyone who joined in this time around! I hope to see you all again at Stamp With Us Winter!!! I will be back tomorrow with some cupcakes I made for a very special birthday boy!

I hope this hasn't given you a

Confessions of a bad blogger!

My name is Mrs Wonka and I am a bad blogger! There I said it out loud......that should make me feel so much better! I am so sorry that I have been so rubbish, I have been up to my eyes in other projects and my mojo has run out by the time it comes to crafting for me! I thought I would quickly pop on and show you my DT card for the Stamp With Us challenge this week. I have used the "I Wish" scrappin kit, I can;t believe how far those blighters go! I promise that I won't leave it so long next time!
