Fancy A Cupcake? xx

Especially one with crunchy icing on the top?

Ooops I forgot - I am on a diet and I can't - doh!!!!! Although it didnt seem to stop me scoffing a mahoosive cherry scone complete with a good dollop of Anchor butter about 2 hours ago. Willpower, where have you gone??????

But anyway, I can have the next best thing, cos over at Papertake Weekly this week, we have been sponsored by The Cutting Cafe, and there is a fab prize up for grabs, cos YOU get to choose any three downloads, plus the download that we all used this week, which is 'It's All About Cupcakes'. And these cupcakes are all calorie free - woohoooo lol xxxx

Apols here and now for the utter rubbish pics. What the chuff is up with my flippin camera lately???? Well it cannot possibly be me.

Can it?

So the challenge is to create a matching set. I have a couple of things from TCC and they are all so easy peasy to follow. So I thought I would use my Greeting Card folder template - you can see it here. And this is what I made.

The papers are all from PPs fabulous new download, Sweet Sundaes. It is sweet, and not just for Sundays either lol xxx

I used my beloved MSBP - yet again. Cos I lubs it xxx

And I used my beloved PMs again. Cos I lubs them an' all lol xxx

I found some buttons and bit of ribbon in my stash and they went on for good measure.

This is the inside.
It comfortably holds 6 A5 sized cards on one side and the envelopes on the other. I think it's a nice thing to make as a gift for someone.

These are the cards inside.
Except that they aren't really cards, they are a single piece of card with a little mini card on the front.

So you can write your message .....

.. in here.

Whaddya think?

Well it has been all go here. I've been a really bad blogger and have hardly visited anyone, so I am really sorry, I will catch up soon. But I have been doing the nurse thing, cos Emma is still under the weather and then poor Kyla had a sickness bug yesterday so she was poorly all day. She is back on form today and is issuing orders from her sick bed like Lady Docker lol xxx

So I missed the NEC. But all is not lost cos I am going tomorrow instead - hurray!!!

If all goes to plan and I can get it to work, I am going to do the scheduled post thing and so it should appear on here as I am wandering about looking at the latest fab stuff with which to bankrupt us with.

If it all goes to pot and it doesn't work, then I will post it when I get home.

But if ya want a sneeky peek, then here you go .....

I have been saying for ages now that one of these days that I am going to do a 'compare and contrast' card, ie doing the same card but using my PMs on one and my poor old sad and forgotten watercolour pencils on the other.

Well I have done it. So nip over manana and take a look xxx

Until then, have the most fabulous day.

Huggles xxxxx
