A Cupcake Challenge...


Tonight I thought I'd post a card that I made over the weekend but only got around to photographing tonight! I always find this part a chore as I have to rely on sunlight (which we've got today - hurray!) and my camera's ability not to screw up or eat the batteries!

So I played along with the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #72.Kinda busy huh? But a challenge nonetheless so armed with scissors, stamps and pens I was ready to go!

Here's what I made:I know, I know it's the bloomin' Doctor's Orders set again! LOL! But I just love to colour the images.I'd also bought the cute clip from Paperchase the day before with this exact use in mind! Don't ya just love the little clipboard?! Simply made with Kraft card (edged with distress ink) and the clip. The paper is made lined with a simple gel pen (blue and red) and ruler after stamping the image.
I'm hoping that this card could be for a male. In fact, I've got the bf with 'man flu' no, not swine flu! So I have the perfect reason to give this card to him! Though I have a highly sneaky suspicion that he's better now. Soon as he got home from work today he was straight to his guitar - the real test will be if he offers to cook or wash up! LOL!

Card Recipe

Stamps: Taylored Expression - Doctor's Orders
Ink: Memento - Black, Distress Ink - Vintage Photo
Card: Cloud 9 Design - Blueberry Ginger, GCD Studios - Ledger Stripe, Kraft (from stash), White (from stash)

Right that's all from me for now! Though before I go, I'd like to give a HUGE shout out to my PTI Peeps Kate and Steph - they decided that EVERYONE was a winner over on their blog for the last challenge. Thanks so much ladies, you both totally ROCK! If you haven't already popped across do so now for the new challenge - I have a feeling it's one nearly everyone could do...

Catch ya later!
