Fairy cakes, a watercolour wedding card and seagulls.

This is a very quick post today folks, we've been busy bees this weekend so not much crafting has been going on. I did, however, do a bit of baking! These aren't the best looking fairy cakes in the world, but they taste pretty good!

If anyone is interested in the recipe, it's very simple, just 6oz butter, 6oz sugar and 3 eggs creamed together, then 6oz self-raising flour mixed in at the end.

It was getting late by the time I iced them so I went for the quick 'splodge it on' approach so that we could eat them quicker!

Sam and I went to a friend's wedding reception on Saturday so I decided to make a watercolour card to congratulate them. I wanted a very simple card, so I quickly painted a pink heart with two purple blobs above it. When it had dried I outlined the blobs in pen and turned them into little lovebirds. The font on the front of the card is from the internet; I drew it out in pencil first then went over it in pen when I was happy it was well spaced.

.....And I finally got around to framing the seagull paintings from my last post ready to sell. What do you think? I decided to go with a seaside-y blue mount. (Please excuse the photo, it was a little dark when I took it!)


I'm currently working on some more to expand the collection - watch this space!

Today I'm linking up to Sumo's Sweet Stuff, Handmade Harbour, Paint Party Friday and Manon Popje's Illustrations.
