Red, gold, white, some cupcakes and awards

The challenge on Colour create this week is Red, gold and white or cream. I've used the SU stamp again (!) put it with some Anna Griffin velvet ribbon and one of her sentiment embellishments. added some bling on the image and at the bottom. I think most people will be getting a card with this stamp on at Christmas I just love the effect.

I've also finished my cupcakes and made a lasagne - yes I am going for a rest now despite having not had time to play with my new wax and seals kit.
Here they are Pineapple and coconut from the Hummingbird Bakery cookbook. They have pieces of pineapple at the bottom of the cake and they have coconut milk in the cake and in the butter-cream. They didn't put cherries on the ones in the book but I thought it set them off nicely. they are big cakes, the recipe actually makes 12 if you use ordinary cupcases.
These are the lovely awards I've been given. I also have another one from Fiona but I am saving that so I can pass it on as I haven't seen it on many blogs. I think the ones below have been given to most people by now, I'm just catching up.

Thanks to Ann at Lovemaking Things for this one. 
Three things I love about myself - My size 5 feet, my sense of humour and having a kind heart.
A picture I like, well I really like the one above with the cakes and it fits the award!

Thanks to Lynne from Cards from Lynne's loft for this one.

and to Kathleen from The Daisy Chain

WOW Linby!! You must have a fantastic metabolic rate to eat all those huge cup cakes and not gain too much on the hips! Admire you for going for what you enjoy and damn the consequences.....
