Sticky Fingers? No, it's Baking Bedlam

 I couldn't resist this new image when it came out at Phindy's Place:  this is called Baking Bedlam
I do a lot of baking but I promise it never looks quite this messy:  if only because the dogs will clear anything that hits the floor lol!  Yesterday I made a chocolate and Guinness cake for the cricket tea, meringues for our friends visiting and then custard with the egg yolks and it was a little chaotic for a while...
My card follows the sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday and I used a piece of my treasured Nook & Pantry Basic Grey DP for the cupcake background.  Sentiment comes from Paulette at TLC Creations, from a set designed to co-ordinate with this image.  Image is coloured with Copics, mounted onto a Nestie with dimensional glue, tied with baker's twine (of course!) and a little punched scroll added to balance the sentiment.

My card is for the following challenges:
Pile it On - sweet treats
Simon Says Stamp - food & drink
Basic Grey - anything goes
Paper Sundaes - green & twine from the sundae bar

  4. Hi Anne - fabulous card and fabulous image - I don't look that good when I am baking and my kitchen is much messier! Hazel x

  5. I can totally relate to this poor woman in the kitchen Anne! That would not be where my creativity lies!! Adorable card - such a fun image. If I did a card with this my mom would say it was a perfect fit. And the perfect background paper too. Thanks for sharing this with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday!

  6. Hi Anne, I've been there done that sometimes. I love baking as well but not quite sure if I've ever looked like that. Love your image and wonderful colours and design papers. It's such a fun image. Great job and thanks so much for sharing your card with us at Sweet Sketch Wednesday and good luck.

    P.S Your chocolate and guinness cake sound interesting. Is it a moist cake? My husband is Irish is it possible to get the recipe from you I have a very moist chocolate cake which you boil first before baking which you might like to try?
    Take care

  7. What a fun image. I had to show this one to my daughter. She sells Pampered Chef and was wanting an image that would go with what she is doing. I love how you have colored it up. Darling, darling card.
