Sweet in more ways than one

Howdy Bloggettes! Well its that time of morning again.... my time to blog. Well it always seems things load up or down or whatever quicker for some reason... So anyway here I am. I bet yuo're soooo thrilled... well a tiny bit thrilled would be good! Anyway over at Totally Gorjuss our new challnge has just gone live! That sounds so important! Well the theme this week is sweet. So it can either be a sweet image or an image of something sweet. I opted for this little Tilda with her lollipop. Rather than have her float in mid air - always difficult I've found, in fact more difficult than walking on water..... No matter so I sat her on some roses! Always comfy lol

For a change I got the old Distress Inks out and coloured her with those. My last piece of gingham paper ~sobs~ a bit of punching a la Martha and flowers a la Wild Orchid Crafts. I had to lay the card down immediately after I took the photo, yes you're right it was still wet!

This is a new sort of colour for me, not the pink and blue. The very pastel shades. I do like them but I can't 'do' them if you know what I mean.

Oh here's my 'fabulous' (in my dreams) arty shot!

Oh you know how I said the theme was sweet I suppose I could have used these little babies! Yum! C H O C O L A T E C A K E S!!! Trust me they are as yummy as they look.

Oh and for you non sweet tooth folks - some small tarts. These are spinach, cherry tomato and feta cheese. I LOVE feta cheese.... In fact I love cheese full stop. These are warm out of the oven.... can you smell them?

Oh and specially for Kath here's a little video of one of her favourite girls! Well mine anyway. I bought harry and Tinker some treat sticks. Harry was so excited she couldn't wait to open them!

Sweet card, love the Martha Punches. Yummy looking baking too, you are bad showing us all that cake when we can't get at it!

Kath said...

The look she gave you said "Mean Mummy, I'll drink your coffee then if I can't have my treats" AND I know the feeling because we can't open the package to have any of your yummy cooking either !!!!!
Nice card too. :)

Oh Net I would eat all the sweets off the top of those cakes - don't like choc cakes. The tarts look very yummy though.

The card is beautifully coloured in what colour distress ink did you use for her skin?
