A touch of Pink xx


Happy Sunday lovelies

I do hope this finds you all well? I'm on the mend after that flu just wouldn't shift! Been a busy week work and personal life, non-stop and lots of baking!

It was the SWI's (Scottish Women's Institute) 100th Birthday last year and this year was our Institutes 90th. We had a fab wee meal on Wednesday with some fab speeches, games and lots of stories from over the years. I made lots of cupcakes instead of one big cake so the ladies could take their individual one home and enjoy when they weren't so full after the yummy meal!


A fab night, lots of laughs and I was stuffed!!
Also this week was my mum's friend Diane's 50th Birthday! Sadly we couldn't make it to the party with Hubby still being ill but I did enjoy making her wee card!


I made a wee easel card using the stunning new digital stamp Happy New Year, Raise a Glass Girl from the fab Time for Tea Designs




I coloured the image with my Spectrum Noirs and the papers are First Edition Sweet Nothings and lots of glitter to make it all sparkle

I also baked again for Craft Club on Saturday where we made some paper bunting, had a good gossip and they enjoyed some yummy Lemon and Lime gooey Cupcakes

Well I'm off to finish some crochet and heat up by the fire, its so cold tonight and can see us getting the snow soon!

Take care and have a great week you lovely lot
