Hello my friends. I hope you've been enjoying your weekend. Mine has been good so far. I did some crafting, some baking and earlier today I went to my parents' for bbq.
What does it came to your mind when you think of summer? When I think of summer I think of beach, sea, sun, bbq and picnics. When we have picnics I usually bake something to bring with me - cupcakes, cakes ... Different things. But lately I've been making (not just for picnics) a lot of this cake roll which I absolutely love - and so does everybody else who tried it (even my cousin and he's one of the pickiest people I know).
There are a couple of reasons I like to make this cake roll so much:
1. it's veeeeery easy and very quick to make (preparation and baking time together only take about 30 minutes; probably even less)
2. it's gluten free
3. it's delicious - ask anybody ;)
I immediately knew that I wanted to use some bright papers and these Authentique ones seemed perfect. And since I did some baking for the bbq later today I also knew that I just had to use this adorable Double cupcake Anya image from TGF. She seemed perfect for my card! :)
She's coloured with Promarkers and Faber Castell pencils. On parts of her dress and her hair accessories I used diamond Stickles. Anya is raised on foam pads to give the card some extra dimension. Embossing was done with Crafts Too embossing folder. All of the ribbons came from Crafty ribbons. The dotty ones are from their new Summer festival collection and the green ribbon I used in the back can be found here. The button I used for the center of my ribbon "flower" is from the knit buttons pack. The other embellishments came from my stash.
So, that's it from me for today. Have a wonderful Sunday (what's left of it) and don't work too hard tomorrow. ;) xx
