Oh you know how much I like cake, I can pass on the chocolate biscuits and crisps but cake now that is why I carry a spare tyre around with me. But as my weight continues to go up and never down *rolls eyes* I am being real fussy which cake I indulge in, if it's a supermarket cake I will pass but if its from the baker or even better still hand made I can not resist. I tend not to choose chocolate based cake, no eclair for me but anything else with fresh cream would be hard to resist. No if you have found the joy of PINTEREST you will know that there are pages of mouth watering bakes, just as well I don't drool or my key board would be a right mess!
So Fiona who kindly keeps on top of the challenge over on our Facebook pages has been picking cake as the colour inspiration for the weekly challenge. And this is the current one.....
It's gorgeous and I am sure EVA loved it. But look, no water mark, no idea who's it is or where its come from, remember what I say WaterMarkAllYourPhotosOnTheWeb.
Can you work with these colours?

Here on the farm we have a new addition, DH and Son went shopping yesterday down to Stirling and came home with a new bull, not that I, being your no-where-near-perfect-farmers-wife, would recognise him, BUT the thing is, his name is Basil...................first thing I say to hubby............I hope he's not Faulty! A bull that does not work is a bull no more. LOL
On a sadder note the farm dog aged 12 had to be put down and the storms yesterday knocked over the guinea pig hutch and we have yet to find the runaways in a very over grown garden with a lot of hedges. :(
I did take out my sewing machine, yes its out of the box after 5 years! I know this because the receipt was still in the box. I made a sling bag out of scraps from the local curtain fabric shop. I will not be showing you nor will I be submitting it to any one's close inspection, but for now we still have a flower to make to decorate and its done, I am sure the second one will be better.
I have also been playing with something new in the crafting world, a first for two BIG company's working together and I LOVE IT, and as always I will share with you even if its not Sugar Nellie, I just have to have some samples done first and then I will let Mark have them so they are available for you to play with too.
That's all my news girls, I hope that the weather has been kind to you and that you are giving our sweet rubber a fair amount of inky love.
