Celebrate With A Cupcake!

Evening everyone, hope you are all keeping warm and dry on this horrible wet & windy day! Apologies for not being around much this week but we are in the middle of some decorating at the minute so the house is a bit upside down! I managed to get this card made today though using this weeks fab sketch from Freshly Made Sketches

I dug out an old unused stamp for this one by Hero Arts.


I seem to have a thing for this yellow gingham at the moment but I only have a little scrap left now so you won't be seeing much more of it! I coloured the image with Copics and added some Glossy Accents and some Micro beads for sprinkles! The papers are from a My Minds Eye paper pad - Miss Caroline. I did my usual faux stitching and popped on some gems to finish!

I would also like to enter this into


Thanks for looking, my decorating should be done by mid -week so will be back to normal then!
