Good morning. Can you believe it's Friday again?  Where the week gone?
I would like to welcome my 2 new followers that have joined, now I am sorry I only noticed that I was up to 55 last night, so sorry if you joined a few days ago? I can't work out who you are, but I have a feeling it's friends from Sandra's ( Cotswold crafter) blog.  Can't get the link thing to work, sorry.
Today it's again time to show an oldie,  I  thought I'd show another one of my beer cakes this is the one I did for Derek my son-inlaw.

Derek is a great music fan, and especially Jethro Tull, so it was only right I did something special on his cake to do with this.  For those who have followed me for as long as I have had my blog will know this went down a storm with Derek .  The whole thing apart from the beers sit in the glass cabinet in the front room.    He still talks about his great night.  Tammy had also arranged for the young band called " Blackwolf" to come and sing.

I love the challenge of these gifts, really.   Ok my brain does go into overdrive while thinking how to put the design together.
Any way that's it for today, I most make a move or it will lunch time and time to go get Anna from school.   The good thing about it being Friday is I don't work the weekend.
Take care, and again thank you for all your kind comments on my little gift bag.

  3. Love the idea of this card it looks fantastic, glad he kept it.
    I made a big card for my son-in law's 40th three years ago and he kept it in on show for a while, but sadly he died a few months later and a copy of the card was actually buried with him, but my daughter kept the original.
    love Wendy xx

    I remember when you did the Beer Cake. It certainly went down a storm at the time.

  12. Hi Hazel,
    It's when I see photo's like this that I'd like to "handle" the card to see how you actually did it. It looks tremendous.
    I know nothing about Black Spiders, but I was once at a wedding where Judas Priest were among the congregation. No, I know nothing about them either!!!
