What’s Happening and Cake


Time for another CCEE Stampers challenge. Our challenge this week is a Recipe Challenge … Use 2 circles, 1 oval and two or more octagons (or hexagons/decagons) on your card.

I used this fun set from Paper Pretties and paired it with a chicken wire background stamp I have for my hexagons. My sentiment is in 1 oval (even though it killed me not to layer it!!). Colored image with prismacolor pencil and blended with odorless mineral spirits. Used a little watercolor paint for the sky.

    Yesterday was also my middle daughter’s birthday. Allie turned 15! Here is the cake I made for her. She drew me a sketch of what she wanted and I produced it.

    What a cutie chick that is. I have to confess I did layer mine - I decided the overall end result was one oval, ha ha.
    And oh my - the cake is amazing!! I hope she loved looking at it as much as I'm sure she enjoyed eating it.
