4 You & Whoopie Cakes

I have been experimenting making Whoopie Cakes this afternoon (yes they are legal) in between making cards.  Mum and I saw an article in The West Australian newspaper last week about Whoopie Pies or Cakes.  We were intrigued so I Googled to find out what they were as I had never heard of them before.  As a result of this we ventured off to the Kitchen Witch yesterday at Edgewater and purchased our Whoopie Pans and also found a great recipe book.  For my first attempt I made Chocolate Gluten Free Whoopies (Mum and I have had a great laugh over the name of them), they look like the picture in the book so I think this is a great start..  I am just waiting for them to cool completely before I put the filling in, make a cup of coffee and sample the wares.

The card for this post is for the challenge at Freshly Made Sketches, based on the following sketch:

We are supposed to keep out card fresh and clean lined for the challenge but my card ended up a bit antiquified (not sure if that is a word) for the challenge but I thought I would still enter it as I was quite pleased with the finished card.

The inspiration for the colouring of the Elements of Style stamp I cased  from the very talented Sandy McIver.  I made the flower using the Victoria Crochet Trim and an Antique Brad as the centre.


  1. This is so lovely! Your coloring is simply fantastic and I love the lace rosette. So glad you joined us this week at Freshly Made Sketches!

  2. This is very pretty! That lace flower is too, too lovely. Wonderful colouring and great card!!

  3. What a beautiful creation Carolyn ... I love what you did with the trio of panels - your colouring is lovely and the mix of heat and dry embossing is great!
    Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!!!

  4. Very pretty! I'm glad I wasn't the only one who went landscape in their interpretation of this sketch :)
