Bake Sale and Bad Weather

Good morning to you ... I hope you are well ...

This weeks challenge at City Crafter is 
"Bake Sale"
brought to us by sweet Kirsty ... with this gorgeous inspiration photo

Use something on your projects relating to baking ... images, recipes, cupcake ... or even a decorated home baked gift will suffice

A while ago I saw this lovely little case in the sales for £2.75

I thought it would make a nice gift for someone who like to make jam 

So this challenge gave me the opportunity to make a card to go with my gift

I tried to keep within the colours of the case as best I could and the style

I used plain white CS and printed the polka dot pattern straight onto it ... The background paper is My Minds Eye ... tape is Cosmo Cricket ... and the red is Core'dinations ...
The image I cut from a piece of Webster Pages (Cherry Pie) 

I've also used stickers from Melissa Frances, October Afternoon and some little chipboard pieces from Jennifer Ellory

This week our Guest Designer is Rebecca Deeprose ... a very talented lady who has been both a winner and spotlight Artist here at City Crafter ... her blog is very inspiring ... go take a look
 Our generous sponsor this week is Pixie Dust Paperie ... who are awarding the challenge winner a total of 10 yards of beautiful crinkle ribbon in 3 different colours! 

So come along and join us for your chance to win

On another note ... 

It's been another wet and wild August bank holiday here ...
There are two major events every August bank holiday in this part of the UK ... 

The Matthew Street Festival ... A musical extravaganza where Liverpool welcomes the world to celebrate in our musical history ... upcoming bands, groups and stars of the musical world put on free concerts ... the city is alive with sounds
Then there is the famous Cream Fields event ... literally held in the fields of Warrington not far from Liverpool ... Another 3 day event of live music ... again people flock from all over to be part of this event
Unfortunately on the first evening the rain came too ... Heavily ...  The Cream fields quickly became awash ... people in tents had a disasterous time as the rain continued until even the major roads flooded ... By Sunday morning it was all over for the annual event ...

Monday morning heralded another wet and windy day ... the forecast was not good and it was decided to then close the Matthew Street festival too ...

Typical Bank Holiday in the UK!

Enjoy your day
