There's a whole lotta baking going on!

There's a whole lotta baking going on in our house today!

Though I have no 'Sweetheart' to make a card for,  I made a Valentines Thank you card to the Queen of my  Heart... my lovely daughter. 

I am always proud of my shy and artistic 14 year old daughter and today seemed like a good day to show it... by making her a card.

 I tried to get a lot of texture in this one, the big heart is recycled card from packaging, the wrapping paper covering is recycled Cath Kidston, stuck down and sanded and then smooshed with a mix of Mint Liquid Pearls and Crystal Stickles The greeting was embossed and cut out from a Cuttlebug embossing folder (Woo Hoo Anita!) All topped off with lashings of Glossy Accents and a decorated Prima Flower.

She has already made a gorgeous batch of Sausage Rolls and is just putting the first batch of Peanut Butter Cookies into the oven. 

The Hummingbird Bakery cookbook is certainly MY favourite of her Christmas presents... beating the Derwent Watercolour Pencils simply because she keeps making beautiful things, which we both get to eat!

Last week she made the most delicate 'Lavender Cupcakes'... loving all this baking!

I ma entering this into the Queen-of-Hearts-challenge at Quietfire Style

This is really fabulous. I love the colours and texture, and have a real soft spot for those Gorjuss stamps - I always used to send my daughter a Valentine card. I wish someone would learn to cook in our house, lol, the lavender cupcakes sound very tempting. Maria x
