Happy Valentine's Day
I haven't made a card for ages but dug out my supplies to make one for my OH. I really do have a lot of craft stuff!!! I spent a happy hour sorting through boxes of inks, stamps and toppers. No cost as I had everything. Hope he likes it. With a little bit of work I could save a lot of money by making cards again. They seem to have shot up in price. I saw a card of similar size in the shop selling for £3.99!!
I also baked him a cake. He has a very sweet tooth! It's a lemon drizzle cake baked in 2 wee heart shaped tins. I used my bargain eggs and lemons ;-) I sandwiched it together with my home made apricot jam and drizzled the lemony syrup over it. I also made some heart shaped cupcakes from the mixture for my other sweet toothed guy.
I saw an idea where you put a marble in the tin to create a kinda heart shape. I used some baking beans. They came out ok ish. The hungry Teen won't mind what they look like!!
