About time I made a 'normal' card for a change and a cake was just what was needed. A lovely lady called Sarah works in the site restaurant and asked me to make her a wedding card - so.....I asked her to make me a cake!!! (she's well renowned for lovely cakes). She got the card which she loved and I got TWO cakes and they were absolutely yummy - gingercake and plumcake MMmmmmm - I have such a sweet tooth its unbelievable. Just wanted to say thank you to her so I thought I'd make her a card.
It came together quite easily - think it was the verse that helped. The verse was stamped onto a inked background, a scroll stamp was used on K&Co paper, used a border punch and added a few flowers and a piece of ribbon. I shall give it to her tomorrow - just hope she wants some more cards in the future as I definitely would like MORE cake!!! Bye for now x
Hello, I'm Polly.
I love altered art, cardmaking, ATC's, in fact anything that needs gluing, stamping, inking or cutting is just my idea of heaven!!!!
I am pleased to say that my husband of 7 years is extremely tolerant of my crafts, especially as I tend to spread from one room to another,well aren't all we all a little messy when we're being creative!!
I like to incorporate all kinds of embellishments in my work especially lace, ribbon, butterflies, angels, hearts etc in fact anything pretty and girly. I soooo love pretty and quirky pieces of art. I was lucky enough to see Tim Holtz in the flesh recently - seeing him was just fantastic. It was only a one hour demonstration but its amazing how much inspiration you come away with.
I hope you enjoy my blog
