Tuesday Trigger - Fancy Schmancy

Thank you all so much for the lovely birthday wishes and get well wishes you sent on my blog post Tuesday, so grateful to you all!!

Just loved the Trigger inspiration photo this week on the Moxie Fab Blog, which is here. I would love to be able to make fancy cakes like these but I think they need a lot of work!


When I saw the cake on the foreground I immediately thought of a butterfly with a pink body (to match the cream in the middle), so that is what I based my card on. I used the Starburst Lace from Hero Arts for the background.

This picture is taken from my back garden of the snow which we have every year on the 'Montagne Noir' which is translated 'Black Mountains', taken yesterday.


We are not having some of the real cold temperatures which other countries in Europe are having, but it certainly is getting colder.
