Samantha’s birthday

It was Samantha’s birthday on January 11th and we had a bit of a family get together at our house and a buffet to celebrate the Sunday. 

We also got the Wii out so we were ski jumping, down hill skiing, bowling etc – I just love it as do all the family – although I it is better when you play it with friends or family, I don’t like playing it on my own or just with Joe.


This is the card I made for Samantha.  Tracey showed us how to make an easal card at one of her workshops before Christmas. – otherwise I wouldn’t have had no idea how to make it lol !!!

I was really proud that is turned out so well!!  Who’d have  thought it.


I didn’t make a big birthday cake – instead I made some vanilla & chocolate cup cakes enjoyed by adults grandchildren alike.   I haven’t made ‘little cakes’ (that’s what my mum always referred to them as) in years

I had not used my icing equipment for years – so it gave me an opportunity to have a ‘good sort’ out too.  So I felt very good about that too.  As we are trying to de clutter our house as I have quite a few precious items that I want to keep that were my Mum’s.
