Long Forgotten Die

Hello there!

If you were here yesterday, you will be asking "so how is the lemon and poppy seeds cake?" Well, hubby loves it, but my daughter Aimee certainly doesn't like it. She said it is too "lemony"!! My final verdict is......... it is DELICIOUS! The moist cake texture has a lovely tangy lemon syrup mix with the fragrance of poppy seeds. Gosh, it is like heaven! Wish you could all taste it!

Now back to card making. As a crafter, I bet we all have way too many tools, gadgets, stamps, papers etc. If you are like me, who loves to buy buy buy, over time you might forget what you have bought. I think it is about time that we all looked deep into our drawers to see what we've got and haven't yet used.

I have had this Sizzix Birthday Girl Sizzlits die for ages. (I think I bought it when it was on sale and it was really cheap. We all love a bargain don't we?! animated smileys) It was stored in my craft box and long been forgotten. Finally, after tidying up the other day it has again seen the light of day. I can't believe that I hadn't even opened it. So here it is, using this die for the very first time, a card for my daughter's friend's birthday.

Did I tell you that I like to personalise cards? I like to add the recipient's name on the card if I can. Here is a closer look.

She looks so happy. How can I forget her?! I feel happy now that I made this card. At least I have not wasted my £££ ! And to have accidently found a new die, well, that has to be a great surprise!!

That's it for now. (Can't believe that I posted for two continuous days!) Enjoy the rest of your evening and hope you accidently find a new item which you have not used before too!


  1. awww.... this is so adorable! love the yummy colors you used!

  2. Hi Julie, glad the lemon cake turned out well. Isn't it fun to find a new recipe on the internet (or in the good old cookbooks!), I love baking and trying out new recipes. At the moment, with the glut of fruit and veg we have it's all pickles and chutneys - but my real love is baking. Oh, almost got carried away with the food things! - your card is very sweet too. The die is cute and yesterdays card was great as well. Not too crowded at all. Sarah
