yooohoooo I'm back!!




a whole week without blogging, that doesn't happen often... well, I have been away on holiday to lovely Somerset.
So first thing I need to do is check in with some of my favourite challenges and see what I can combine.

aha, wednesday stampers "cake" and Less is more "one layer card with sentiment as the focus"
I chose the smallest cupcake I could find, so that the sentiment stayed the focus on the card, but it did need the cupcake.
The sentiment is off the Children Plate from Scrolls work (expect to see a lot more of that plate...) and the cupcake is a free papermania one that came with the docrafts mag a while back. The embossing is a papermania embossing folder. I've coloured the cake with pencils and highlighted with stickles

I actually thought this would be a good card for a little girl's first birthday

  1. This is a real cutie Joanne, I think I must have the little cupcake stamp sculling around somewhere. It's amazing what I get reminded of from all our fabby submissions!
    Thanks for being such a great LIMette!
