Yummy treats

I've made a card this morning that combines another 3 challenges, I love it when that happens! The Magnolia challenge is called 'chocolate delight' hence the browns and Tilda's chocolate heart cookies and the delicious cake stand of scrummy delights! Which brings me to this weeks Cute Card Thursdays challenge (kept looking for this yesterday as I was convinced yesterday was Thursday and today Friday!! I don't know wishing my life away as if it's not passing by quick enough already Lol.!) anyhow the challenge is 'food' so think that I've got that covered!! Then there is the sketch by Katharina that I have used for Papertake Weekly.Lillie was the 'special person' at school last week, this lasts for a week and 1 thing that takes place is the 'special person' has to leave the classroom and wait whilst the rest of the children say why they like them! So on Friday Lillie came out of school with thissome of the things are so sweet and some quite funny (well to us, knowing what she is like at home!), her friend Lily is the 1 that said they were like sisters which is true they are, because if they are not bestest friends they are bickering!
She had a last minute invite to her friend Elle's birthday party yesterday so I had to fight the ladder down through the loft hatch and go rumaging in the boxes, no not of the girls old things, I like to buy as much as I can in the sales after christmas, yes we go shopping on Boxing Day!!!!! I try to cover as many birthdays, mothers and fathers days and the following christmas presents as I can. Some people think we are mad, but this way we get a lot better presents, but it is getting harder now, when the children were younger you could pretty much get them anything but now, if it's not High School Musical, it's Hannah Montana, or Barbie dolls etc and as for the boys I'm clueless! So heh presto a pail of make-up, most little girls like make-up and the card I made with the 6 on a few days ago and off she went, it was only a small do at the house and when Lily's mum and I went up to collect the girls Donna, Elle's mum was pretty frazzled the children had been so full of energy and into everything that she was glad to be saying goodbye to them, doesn't help being 6 months pregnant either!
