Do take a look at Karen's blog as she has some other lovely recipes including a lovely Farmhouse Cake which she has named 'Alice Cake' after the grandmother from whom the recipe was handed down from.
Thanks Karen for your lovely recipes!!!!!

It really hit home to me though that all it takes is a few seconds for something life changing to happen. If I'd been a child, the driver might not have even heard the shouting and driven over me. Luckily, I'm here to tell the tale.
Thanks to everyone that knows me on Facebook that took the time to post and make sure I was ok - it meant alot to me. Shame that one or 2 people that I once thought cared alot about me didn't care enough to check I was ok! C'est La Vie!

Anyway - I made the basic newspaper card and then decorated it with some gardening decoupage that I'd picked up at the Ally Pally in April.
I'm really pleased with the result and will be making many more of these now I have the hang of it!!!
The first was for my mum's birthday. I'd seen a lovely centre stair step card style which I wanted to use and there were some great instructions here.
I used some polka dot card and went for a butterfly theme. I've used 3 different butterflies, one is from my Marianne die and the other 2 were sent to me by Caroline. Caroline makes some lovely cards and other bits and bobs and you can find her here.
I also put some purple polka dot paper on the inside and a Labels 1 mat on which I printed a sentiment and used distress ink to colour.
I really like this design of step card and wil be using it again.

I love testing out different fake tan products as I'm not one to lie around in the sun for hours trying to catch a tan and I always like to put sun tan lotion on my face if I'm out in the sun as paraonid about wrinkles!!!!
It's an instant shimmer tan called Bronze Ambition Glow 'N' Go and it's made by Creightons. It comes in one shade I think as no sign of any others. You just rub it in your face or body and then when you don't want it on anymore you just wash it off.
It give's a really nice even colour and it doesn't stain your hands very much when you use it although you should still wash your hands straight after applying!
Probably best not to wear it with white clothes but you could test it and see!!!
Here is what you need to to look out for
I forgot to say that it has a pleasant coconut fragrance to it.
They also do another fake tan by the same manufacturer that is the type that develops over a few hours. I didn't buy that one but may go back for it!!!
Grab yourself a bargain and have a tan even if the weather is miserable!!!

The fair was lovely and full of the most gorgeous vintage fabrics and other bits and pieces. It was great to be able to stroke the fabrics and take in all of the fab colours and designs. There were also lots of vintage clothing and linens.
here. I loved the whole look of this stall, a simply beautiful display.
This was another stall packed to the brim with gorgeous vintage fabrics - Sal's Snippits, lots of cotton feedsacks.
here - go and have a look!!!
I bought a few bits and pieces at the fair. I got some gorgeous bundles of cotton lace and some Liberty fabric pieces from Hardaker and Pope
EDIT - OMG I forgot to mention the coffee and homemade cake that I had!! Served in a lovely china teacup and a slice of very dark chocolate cake - yum!!!!
