Monday evening card!!

Evening everyone. I'm actually rather tired this evening but was dying to make another card!
I have used an Anya image Susie sent me a while back.
The orange papers are the back of My Mind's Eye 'Bloom & Grow'
The flower paper is DCWV retro & the sentiment is Papermania.
The gorgeous bit of blue satin ribbon is from my brother's girlfriend Ali. Everytime I see her she gives me a 'bag a swag' she's been collecting for me!!
The cocktail umbrella is one I had in my stash from a while ago.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Die cut Dreams - 'life's a Beach'
Rosie-D's - 'summer birthdays'

Colouring time with my boy ☺

Murphy and I have been enjoying some colouring time together the past few days. He seems to be really getting into it. I've even let him use my promarkers! I've really enjoyed getting back into it although my neck is protesting! Good to be back 😁




About me...

......I thought its probably time I should update my About me info! So here goes.... I am currently 36 years old (as of June 2017) I live in Selby with my husband and son who is (at present) 4 and a half years old.... my son not husband 😆
I suffer with CFS/ME, Fybromyalgia, anxiety and depression. They take up a large amount of my energy and time along with my family so I need an out, something for me and that is Ellephantastic. It's my creative life. Being creative, being inspired by other peoples creativity and inspiring others with my creativity are what keep me going. As well as the love I have for my family, but that goes without saying because who couldn't love this dude?

I love all kinds of crafting and creativity, knitting, art, baking, photography, paper crafting....anything really!
I have spent a lot of time the past 2 to 3 years working on myself and trying different avenues. E.g businesses, counselling, medication, diet.....all sorts! Every time though I have end…

Ellephantastic Cakes

Froggy I thought I would share with you today some cakes I have made over the last year and a bit. Who doesn't love cake? Right! Froggy was a chocolate cake decorate to match my niece's frog themed birthday.
Baby Giraffe Baby giraffe was a treacle sponge cake made for my niece who loves Giraffes Really pleased with how it turned out.


Rose Garden
These are cupcakes and I made a box for them by decorating a large cake box and making my own insert. I made them for my mum as a surprise  They are treacle cupcakes ....yum!




Chocolate Cakes All the cakes I have made have been for my family 
Hope I haven't made you hungry!!
