With my husband and my son both celebrating their birthday last Friday I'm afraid I didn't get any spare time to do any crafting. I'll top up my 'Card a Week' project this week (hopefully).
We did have a lovely afternoon tea on Sunday...
..cupcakes and coffee cake..
..lemon drizzle loaf cake..
..rustic scones, berries and cherries jam and clotted cream..
..and a fabulous chocolate fudge cake..
..and my lovely vintage china teacups, saucers and plates.
Isn't that just a great name for something fussy? I'm told by my knowledgeable sister (Tarty Frog) that tussie mussie is actually a posy of flowers but these decorative cones have taken on the name.
Mine is a relatively small cone, covered with some vintage print paper...
I missed my 'Card a Week' for last week so I've done two similar blank cards for this week.
The crochet granny square is done in embroidery silks and is sewn onto a pale dusky pink card mounted on textured cream. All the edges are ink-smudged in dusky pink.
The inside has a pale dusky pink paper insert with a decorative edge cut to match the raised card on the front.
