Hello and welcome...
We have had a busy weekend at Poppyfield Card Craft HQ celebrating a very dear friend's 70th birthday.  He is a master boat builder which is why I'm including a non-related card photo in this post.  Here is his birthday card
The porthole opens on the card

This very talented man was asked to restore a historic lifeboat, the 'George Elmy' .  The Seaham RNLI lifeboat was hit by tragedy on 17 November 1962, after being called to the aid of a fishing coble. 

Some of you will know that I also make and decorate celebration cakes, so I knew what design to make for this special celebration... a smaller version of the 'George Elmy.'
The cake is 2ft long and approximately 8" high, excluding the wheel house sitting on top

The birthday boy loved it and a good weekend was had by all.

Thank you for taking the time to visit my blog, I hope my designs have given a little inspiration.
I read all your comments and really appreciate you leaving me a message

Saturday's card winner will be announced tomorrow at 10am
