make Lemon Tea Cakes! :)
Hi friends! I hope you had a blessed 4th of July! Ours was almost rained out and it wasn't until way late in the evening that my son finally got to launch some fireworks after waiting all day. We also watched them above the lake 2 blocks away so that was an extra! Even though our bonfire got drenched, we had enough dry wood to get it going and the s'mores were mighty tasty!! It was a nice evening in the end and that's what it's all about :) We are leaving for a small vacation today and will be back on Sunday night. My son has a Tae Kwan Do tournament in Central Florida and we're taking advantage of some poolside lounging, his tournament and beach time! I'm nervous for him but he's excited and in his words "I'm ready!"
I'm still working on my oldest daughter's recipe book :) She's an avid baker and I try to keep track of her favorites and am adding them to a small scrapbook. I used my Cottage Cutz dies, Teacups with Saucer and Teatime border to create this tea cakes recipe card. I cut the teacup in shimmery paper and added a strand of mini pearls for steam and some simple accent embellies.
You can see my blog post on the Cottage Cutz blog here!
I plan to bring along my handy dandy ipad so I'll be able to keep in touch but hopefully will be doing mostly lounging and cheering from the bleachers! :)
See you Monday!
I love the pearl steam! Great card and she will love your finished project!ReplyDelete
Happy travels and good luck to Lil T!
