Back Down To Earth!


Wow what a scorcher of a Saturday! I hope you managed to enjoy the sun (safely!) wherever you are today!

OK so firstly can I just say THANK YOU for your really sweet comments not only here, but over on the SASI blog too. *Hugs* to you all! It made me feel so blessed to have such lovely comments from such lovely people as yourselves! I really was smiling from ear to ear reading them!

But enough of the slushfest, let's get down to business! LOL! So after my little excitement yesterday, life was back to normal today. My niece, Ruby, is 2 tomorrow - she's such a cutie! Therefore, I had the exact image I wanted to play with for her card. For once, I didn't follow any sketches - I had this one ready in my head to make!
I hope you like it! I know it's a continuation of the cupcake theme but note that it doesn't contain a speck of green or a birdie in sight! The image is from my lovely friend Kate from an image swap. I'm not fortunate enough to own all the Taylored Expressions sets but I would love to add a couple more sets to my collection!

But do you want to know the coolest thing about this card?!?! The cake is FLUFFY! That's right - FLUFFY! How cool is that!?! I was busy colouring away with my Promarkers and had a brainwave - sponge cake should be fluffy and light so I applied my quickie glue pen and sprinkled some yellow Doodlebug Crushed Velvet Flock. The pic doesn't do it justice but it's so cute and fluffy to touch! I had the same expression on my face as the cuppie whilst stroking it! LOL! I could almost eat it - yummy!

I'm going to enter this for the first challenge over on the Passsion for Promarkers blog. For their first challenge all you gotta do is use any Promarkers on a card - easy huh?! It's by no means the best (have you checked out the talent over there!?!) but it's certainly cute!
