Back again...

with another Cake tag to share! When I was a child, my father used to sing these words - "If I knew you were coming, I'd have baked a cake." He sang those words over and over. I thought he made it up. The other day I looked online and found out that it's an actual song from the 1950's!! It was really popular then.

I used background paper from Gecko Galz on the tag. It's called "Take the Cake" from the Kitchy Kool paper set. I added yellow Stickles to the candle flames. I printed out the words and then outlined around them with a blue gel pen. The heart is from my stash. The edges of the tag were inked with brown chalk ink.

Thanks for stopping by today!

Terrific tag Joan and I know the song very well and I will be singing it all day long now..my dad used to buy sheet music every Saturday to play on the piano and I learnt the words to all the songs then. Great memories for me thank you

Love Chrissie xx
