Hi sweet bloggers! Hope you are all well!
Yesterday we celebrated our 20th year in France and even though it was hot weather, I baked an 'old fashioned' chocolate cake in the oven.
I was so surprised that it was a success, my first thought was, what did I do to deserve that?? Even the chocolate cream I made to pour over the top did not drip onto the plate, but stayed on the cake! That is how I like baking!
If any one is interested, here is the recipe and I can highly recommend it because the cake is made by putting every part of the recipe into the kitchen machine so that does the work for you.
I have been making some distressed backgrounds for stamping on - love doing that and using different stamps together. I mostly use Hero Arts stamps.
My second card was inspired by Franziska, here is her blog - I just love her cards. I stamped the Hydrangea with white ink on a distressed background.
Finishing with a great postcard which arrived from Holland, a place called URK where traditional clothing might still be worn!
I hope the weather in the U.K. and the North of Europe improves. The drought in the USA, as I heard from my brother in Michigan is really bad and could do with some of the rain that other parts are having in abundance.
