Morning All

Hello everybody

Well if this works this post is scheduled as I am not feeling too good, really bad vertigo and backache woe is me.  Enough she says get on with your blogging.

Sarah and Alan made home-made mushroom soup today it was yummy, especially as someone else cooked for a change.  Well the Armed Forces magazine arrived yesterday in the post and my advert was on the second page, when I can stand will post it on here so pleased with it.

I have 60 bars of soap waiting to be boxed and have not even started making the boxes yet will have to get cracking along with doing some DT work that is.

I have a card and candle to show you today hope you like them.  The candle is from my new mold which turned up on Friday and as I had a little bit of died red wax left added it to the pot and this came out pink I have called it my cupcake candle as that is what it looks like

and then had the thought if this looks like a cupcake perhaps I could put a wrapper around it, and so I made this on my cameo not too bad although it took a couple of attempts need a new blade, have one somewhere will have to look when upright again.

and so onto my card 

I bought this stamp a couple of weeks ago and used it to make an anniversary card which I forgot to take a photo of but thought I would use it again and make a real girly card.  

That's all for now will be by looking at all your wonderful creations shortly.
