Happy birthday, my sweet little girl

Exactly one year ago my life changed completely - I became a mummy to the sweetest little baby girl. A lot has happened in this year and even though it was hard at times, I would never go back. This year was magical and the joy this little girl brings into my life every day is indescribable. I love her to bits.

To celebrate this special birthday, of course we needed a special cake as well. I think I've said it before, but will say it again ... When it comes to baking, my mum rocks! So I asked her if she could make a special cake for her granddaughter. And she said she would. And boy, oh boy, she made an AMAZING cake. I could almost say she made the impossible possible. Why? Because we wanted to have a FRUIT cake in the shape of a mushroom. And she did it! Believe me, it was quite a challenge and A LOT of effort, hard work, time and love (not to mention the ingredients) went into this cake, but the result is simply stunning. But why I am just telling you this, I'll rather show you the photo (I have my mum's permission to share this cake on my blog).

After we also also added my baby's name and shaped candle (no. 1) to the cake.

Doesn't this look like a fairy house? I just LOOOOOOOOVE this cake. Love, love, love it! And it didn't only look amazing, it was also DE-LI-CIOUS. Filled with raspberries, strawberries ... Oh, yum, yum. YUM!

Ok, now that we've covered the most important thing, I'll show you the invitations that I made for Amadeja's birthday. I made two different ones and I kept them simple, but I hope you will like them.

I created shaker cards, using the CC designs scalloped rectangle die and CC designs birthday mice stamps. Aren't they adorable? Love them! I did the colouring with Promarkers and pencils. Sequins came from my stash. I created the cloud background with homemade cloud stencil and TH distress inks.

I'd like to enter my cards to the following challenges:
Allsorts: Anything goes
Bastel Traum: Birthday/birth/white and one other colour
The ribbon girl: Use any image
Die cut divas: Using red or pink
One crazy stamper: Party time
Cute card Thursday: No patterned paper
Creative inspirations: Anything goes

Are you still with me? Hope so, because I have some more sweet news from you ... I can't share cake with you (shame, I know), but I do want to celebrate this big day with you, so I will send some crafty goodies to someone who leaves a comment here. No need to share anything on your blog, but you can if you want. Also, you don't need to be a follower, though I would be thrilled if you were. I'm not telling you what's in the candy, but will tell you that I will choose a winner on the first day of March. :)

Have a wonderful day!
Hugs! xx
