I'm still not at a place with my coursework where I feel comfortable to sit down and allow myself free rein on a blog post. So this post is really just a quick aside for Sam @MakeupAdviceMAF who said she'd like to see some of my cards. I haven't made any consistently for about 4 years now so I had to have a quick trawl through our photo archives to find the ones I did take pics of. There are many cards missing, trains and robots and variations on the ones I do have pics of, that I obviously forgot to record. My babes were all much smaller then and there were plenty of Birthday invites that needed cards.
I've always been into simple, non fussy cards......words on the front are pretty rare.
And, nothing to do with cards, but some cake pics I found along the way and thought Sam might like to see too:
For the uninitiated - it's the Gruffalo!
With candle arm supports because I made the arms stick out beyond what was sensible if you want your Gruffalo to keep his arms. He lived in the oven overnight as I didn't have a cake box big enough.
".....He has purple prickles all over his back...."
Butterfly fruit 'cake'
...I don't want to feed my small child lots of E-numbered icing...
