Wednesday Poems - Dad You’re The Best!

Dad,You're the Best!
Dad, you’ve been there when no one was
You are my guiding light You make me believe I’m special
You show me the path that’s right.
Life is a tortuous path But you help me get through
You’ve taught me to learn, To dream and to try too

Valuable lessons of life I’ve learnt from you
You’ve helped me face challenges And get out as a winner too

You help me bring out The best in me, always
We have great memories together, Memorable times and days

For all the joy and delight, Dad, I thank you
You are the best, I love you!

Music Card For Stampin For The Weekend

Hi everyone, I hope you are all doing well. It’s time for a new challenge over at Stampin For The Weekend Crafting making Challenge!
The theme for this fortnight is
Sparkle and Shine!
Add some glitter, something shiny or anything that sparkles to your card!
Our sponsor for this challenge is The Pretty Little Ribbon Shop, who is offering the winner a fantastic “Cats life press” stamp!
Here is the card I made as one of the examples:
I simply LOVE this card!! All the sparkles and the paper is totally my colours!
I used the most beautiful stamp from Whiff Of Joy called Snow White. I know this is not what Snow White looks like, but I just loved it.
I coloured her with the following Copics:
E35, E33 and E53 - for her hair.
R20, R21 and E00 - for her skin.
RV19, RV34 and RV32 - for her pink dress.
G14 and G12 - for the green on her dress.
B02 and B000 - for the blue at the bottom of her dress and the bow in her hair.
W3 - for a shadow around the stamp.
I also added some glitter to the image.

I glittered music notes and stuck it in the top left corner and bottom right corner.
This is what the inside of the card looks like.
I hope you like my card! Please hop over to Stampin For The Weekend and see if you can take part in our challenge, you can also just take a look at the other DT members’ cards.

Another Lindt Chocolate Course Hand Crafted Truffles

My mother and I finally saved up enough money to do another Lindt Chocolate course. So on Wednesday the 11th my mother and I went to do the Hand Crafted Truffles course. This was my third course, here you can read about the first and second one.

We where so blessed, we were only 3 people attending the course. So we had an amazing course on learning about everything in so much detail.
We learned from beginning to end how to make chocolate truffles.

Teaching and giving us tips all the way through.
This is a chocolate - caramel mixture being stirred.
Another one being cooled on the table.

The Chocolatier taught us how to pipe.

We made a real mess!!
A carmel chocolate truffle.
We received beautiful Lindt certificates and my mother also asked for a picture of us with the Chocolatier that presented the course (Scott Kirkbrid).
Since we were only three participators, we took home loads of chocolate truffles!
Everyone at home was very happy with that!!
It was SO much fun and I can’t wait to make more myself! 

My dad also surprised me with The Art Of The Chocolatier recipe book by Ewald Notter this past Tuesday. It is a totally AMAZING book, that covers just about everything of chocolate and so much more. Thank you SO much Daddy!!
Have a blessed weekend
Chocolate Greetings.

We have 2 sponsors for this challenge, and they are 

Here is the card I made:

I really enjoyed making this card. I just love the paper and I enjoyed using a lot of ribbon.
Since one of the sponsors is Bugaboo, I bought a very cute digital Bugaboo image. As always it was a great challenge to colour this digi (I really struggle to not let the ink smudge), but it turned out fine. I coloured it with the following Copics:
E35, E33 and E53 - For the brown teddy bear.
RV19, RV34 and RV32 - For the cupcake’s bottom.
Y15, Y11 and Y00 - For the cupcake’s icing. 
V06, V04 and V01 - For the blue on the cupcake.
V06, V04 and V01 - For the bear’s hat and the purple candle.
W3 - For a shadow around the stamp.
I cut out this sentiment from of one of the papers, and added a few pearls.
This is my favourite part on the card! I just love all theses ribbons, I punched about 12 holes in a row down the side and then one next to each of them. The I threaded ribbons through and made a knot.

I hope you like my card! Please pop over to Stampin For The Weekend and have a look at what cute cards the other DT members made. Maybe you can even enter a card!

Winner of Fortnightly Baking Fun Challenge and a Change in Seasons.

Hi everyone, two weeks has passed by so quickly again!
My last baking challenge was Biscuits, cookies and slices, yet again I only had one entry. 
Aaliyah you won! 
Congratulations, thank you so much for entering! 
I will e-mail you soon, to get your postal address. 
Here is a blinkie for you!

Over the past few weeks I sensed a change in season for my baking challenge. I only got one entry each for the last two challenges, and decided to close it, for now. By Saturday when I still only had one entry, I prayed and asked the Lord that if He wanted me to keep it going, to please give me more entries and if not, that it will stay one. The result was only one entry, so I believe this is in the Lord’s will. It was an exciting time to share with you in baking (8 months), but I believe we are now all called for something else.
I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who entered so regularly! I would not have been able to do it without you for such a long time. It was so much fun for me and I hope it inspired you to spend more time in the kitchen too.
I will still post recipes every now and then, but will now have time for different kinds of posts.
I hope you understand!
Have a blessed week everyone.
Baking Greetings
