Lemon Drizzle Cake.

 A good friend of mine who is also a mobile hairdresser was telling me yesterday as she cut my hair how one one of her customers had offered her a piece of home made lemon cake. Being on a diet she really didn't want to give in and accept one of her favourite naughty treats but finally agreed to a wafer thin slice, she has way more will power than me. I was so pleased with my hair and usually I treat her to a bar of chocolate but thought better of it so decided instead to treat her to a different kind of "Lemon Drizzle" this time without the cake.

The bath and shower gel is called "Lemonade Days" I buy it from Tesco and it's one of my favourites and by Treacle Moon, it's one of those smells that really makes your mouth water. I Cut a tag on my Cricut before stamping Bathtub Nikki over the edge, I then used the Magnum add on cake,masking the candle when I inked it up. All cling stamps at LCI including these are available at half price till the end of this month, I'm thinking I'm going to be making some more of these  tags to put on Easter gifts as Body Shop are soon releasing a Chocolate range, Mmmmm!!!!! The Butterfly was a magazine giveaway that I stamped onto yellow paper. I would have wrapped the bottle in tissue usually but the blue in my drawer didn't look so good!

I'm using this for the following challenges:-
Alphabet Challenge Y, You choose,
FBW186, Open to Include Wings,
PPCCB71, Ribbons and buttons,
Anything goes 58,Anything goes.
Thanks for stopping by,

What a clever gift idea Julie and in lovely lemon too! Not sure about the chocolate though - I'd rather eat that than bathe in it! Vicky x
