Who doesn’t love the smell of Lavender?

I know its not Lavender season… I just can’t wait for spring/summer when I can smell the fresh lavender again… soooo I decided to make this cute House mouse image into a card… when I started rummaging for off cuts I found just enough lavender bits and bobs to make this one…  
I found just the right amount of inspiration with this fabby Addicted to Stamps sketch! I have followed the sketch and even down to the sentiment, I have added a charm with a sentiment on it that says “made with love” on it.

So do you like the smell of Lavender?
Or do you prefer the smell of home-made brownies?
My Mum and Dad bought me this Nigella Lawson Book for my Birthday ( they did ask me what I wanted) I love cooking and cooking books…. My Son asked me last weekend if we could cook some cakes on Wednesday…. as he did not have anything after school like rugby etc… 
So we did and here they are…. I have to say that the plate is not as full today… Nom nom nom!! hhehehe
