Hi you all! Hope you are enjoying your weekend.
I decided to do some crafting and bake a cake today. After a nice, long soak in the tub I started on my pineapple upside-down cake. I have been planning to make it for weeks, but never got round to it till today. It's a wonderful recipe, where you first heat sugar and water with butter to make a caramel to bed the pineapple in, and the cake itself is made with ground almonds and lots of other good ingredients. It definitely isn't anything for people on diet, but it is delicious. If you are interested in the recipe, you can find it here.
While the cake was baking I was able to make some tags. They have both been made of cardboard, treated as usual with gesso, ink and Utee gold. The first tag is for the challenge at Art Cards Challenge Blog, where they want to see Moos and/or inchies. I have stamped my Mona onto speciality stamping paper, coloured her with sparkling H2Os and then chopped her into three inchies, which I have mounted with foam squares over various scraps used as matting.
The second tag is also made with inchies, and therefore also something for the Art cards challenge, and I am also linking to Fashionable Stamping, 'Show some love', and the 'friendship' challenge at Crafty Individuals.
The background has been stamped with a text stamp from Lost Coast Designs, and the inchies, which I popped up with foam squares, are from a CI stamp.
That's all for today, I need a cup of coffee and perhaps another piece of cake....
Have a great day, take care, and thanks for visiting.
