I'm Craving Cake!!!

There's a simple explanation why I'm craving cake.  First, because it was my birthday last Saturday and I didn't get any cake.  Second, because my oven's broken (need to go buy a new one) and I can't make myself any cake.  And lastly, because the inspiration this week for Challenge #121 at http://www.cupcakeinspirations.blogspot.com/ was a cake theme.  It's all making me crave a big corner piece with LOTS of frosting!  Yum!
I used October Afternoon's Five & Dime collection.  Added a Pebbles rub-on, some scrunched seam binding (of course), used Ranger inks, and finished it off with some machine stitching...cuz that's how I roll.  I thank you for stopping by, and hope you will look at all the fabulous creations that the other Sweeties made for this challenge.

Craving that cake,
Karen

  5. Poor you - our oven broke the week before Christmas and we had visitors coming to stay. No problem buying the new cooker but it was awful trying to find an engineer available! We managed it and had a lovely Christmas. Hazel x
