It's been a long time

How long? Absolutely ages!! Haven't made any cards for a while but I am missing it and plan to pick up my papercraft goodies very soon, it's my nieces 16th birthday on Halloween so plan to make her something instead of buying.

Thought I would share a cake with you I made today....a giant donut!! Love these, made this funky blue. Mum said she wouldn't eat any because the icing was blue, I had to tell her it tasted totally normal lol.

Hope you like it and I hope to be back soon with some new card creations.

Lilli of the Valley and Cupcakes

I'm back!!! A new card to show you, made with one of my new Lilli of the Valley stamps which I bought at the Alexandra Palace Craft Show. I had such a wonderful day there with my friend Lisa who is new to crafting and already spending a fortune on stash lol. The image is coloured with my trusty Promarkers, accents of stickles here and there. The papers are by Craftwork Cards as well as the card blank and sentiment. The beautiful flowers are of course from Wild Orchid Crafts, I am well and truly smitten with these now, no holding back from now on lol.

I've also been dabbling with cupcake baking recently, can't seem to stop myself, I've baked vanilla, chocolate, apple crumble, caramel cupcakes to name but a few. I will attach a couple of photos below which aren't great but at least give you a glimpse of what I have been doing. I'm new to baking so I hope to improve.

Thanks for looking.

What a lovely day

What a day, the showers stayed away, a wonderful day for a wedding. What a lovely couple William and Catherine make. Don't know about you but Kate's dress was simply stunning, the lace sleeves divine. Diana would be very proud of her first born.

Congratulations William and Catherine!

Quickie baby girl card

This is a quick simple baby girl card I have made for my box which I wil be taking to work, trying to get my stock up lol. The image is from the Digi Stamp Boutique, white linen card from The Papermill. Image has been paper pieced as well as the baby socks, the bunny toy has been coloured with Promarkers. I then put the top piece of card through my Cuttlebug using the Swiss Dots folder and then used my brand new Martha Stewart butterfly punch :)

Thanks for looking.

Teddy Bo

How lovely is this bear? Absolutely gorgeous I think. I made this card using all Kay & Co card from a recycled card pad I bought absolutely ages ago, all shades of brown. I think it suits the card perfectly. I coloured the image with my Promarkers, used a little pink glitter and liquid pearls. I again used my Nestabilities to cut the circle etc. Ah I nearly forgot, I also used my new distressing tool from Tim Holtz, I think it is great and gives such a great effect. The sentiment stamp is from a free stamp pack I got from the front of a craft magazine and the stamps are by Papermania, again I have had these ages and never used them.

I really like this card, I hope you do.

Thanks for looking.
