A few random cards and a cake!

Hi there friends, as it's been a while since I have posted a card I thought I would share  a few random ones. Been so busy lately, I never get time to post cards I make for family.

I tend to take very quick pics of them just so I have a record and don't make the same ones next year lol. I make digital ones mostly and tend to use flowers mainly for girls and hobbies for the men in my life...although I did resort to buying one recently as I had just run out of ideas for men! ...oh the shame!!!

Wasn't happy about it though so I will go for a funny animal pic for my male ones in future I have decided!...and think of an amusing sentiment too...if possible.
I will show you that victoria sponge I made too.....went a bit mad with my jam (strawberry conserve) and cream (vanilla) but it was all eaten up I promise...and it tasted divine! I made a note not to use so much next time ;)

Anyway here are a few cards I made this year, excuse the bad photography was just for a record as I said above.
It's so hot here today...must be 30c at least. Just looked in our back conservatory and it says 41c!...yikes that's hot. Just had an ice lolly...well it has to be done!

(Update...just adding a pic of my latest crafty purchase at the end now too ...I love it!)

Enjoy your weekend whatever you have planned ;)

I make similar ones for both of my
 granddaughters just changing names and ages.

I used a photo of my grandson,... again I made
 a similar one for my other grandson.

For my Daughter-in-law

For my Landrover mad son-in-law

For my son and his wife

For my Sister-in-law 

For a friend

My Victoria sponge cake!

WOW! Viv, you have been busy, Gorgeous and beautiful cards, which will be appreciated by the Special person who gets them.

Love your sponge, mine turned out a little underdone! but still able to be eaten it was appreciated by the men in the house though.

Enjoy your hot weekend! we have 22c with heavy dark clouds and a cool breeze!!
