Anyone for Cake !!

Hello my dears,  It's Monday!!!!  and as the saying goes "I don't like Mondays" very much.  It means another 5 days until the weekend.

It's very cold wet and windy here where I live in Bonny Scotland, which means I've had time to do a little crafting just for me.  My Mojo has gone on holiday and left me behind to fend for myself. lol.   I needed some help with this card and turned to blogger and some of my favourite blogs to look for inspiration.

I found a wonderful sketch over at the new Quixotic Paperie Inspirations monthly challenge and a fab game of Bingo at Lili of the Valley.  I chose the line with  Gems, Distressing and pins.  What more does a girl need. I haven't added a sentiment as yet because I don't know who is going to receive it.

My image is from Lili of the Valley and was part of loads of images free from a magazine, it's slightly bigger than my stamp but it was so very convenient, all I had to do was colour her, which I've done with Pro Markers and Derwent water pencils, as said previously I followed the sketch from Quixotic Inspirations challenge this month.  A full recipe is below this post for my ingredients.

I would like to enter the following Challenges:

Lili of the Valley Challenge:  A wee Game of Bingo this week. I chose Gems, Distressing and Pins. (the pin was made by me)
Make it Monday Challenge:  Anything Goes.

Thank you so much for popping in to visit me. I hope you'll come back and see me again soon.
