I Made a Cake!


A chocolate fudge cake.   So what you might ask well anyone who knows me will know that this is extraordinary behaviour.   In fact it must be about 45 years since I last made a cake.   Even more amazing this tastes nice.

While this confection was in the oven I also made a post card.6" x 4".   Would not survive in the post as it is 3D, it was also great fun.


These are Tanda stamps I often wonder what Tania and Andrew are doing these days they did produce some fantastic stamps.

Base is white postcard the edges coloured with Brilliance Orange.    The mat is more of the partly faded purple card used the other day.   All 3 images have been coloured with ProMarkers and fussy cut.

The idea for the postcard format was sparked by Sunday Postcard Art although their Wizard theme was for the previous week.  However the are challenges this can be shared with

Passion for ProMarkers - Halloween/Halloween Colours
Retro Rubber - Boo (This stamp plate is probably about 10 years old)
Try it on Tuesday - Scary and Spooky
Crafty Boots - Halloween

Think I'll have another slice of cake now.
