Happy Birthday, Cupcake!


OK, slap my wrists, I'm a bad blogger! This week has been C.R.A.Z.Y! Super busy at work and super busy with family and stuff so I'm sorry the blog got a little abandoned this past week and I haven't had a chance to catch up with y'all round blogland yet! Oh and I came across a little book called Twilight this weekend, as recommended by Kate. I fear that I may not have time to craft anymore as I have a new obsession! Edward Cullen! OMG! I know a lot of you have already discovered it all, but I'm a newbie and in deep! So feel free to blame Kate for any lack of future posts from me ;D

Although I was busy, I did sneak in some crafty time as I needed to make a card for a bloggin' buddy's Birthday! My buddy shall remain anonymous (as requested!) but let me tell ya, I feel the pressure when making a card for a fellow crafter! Especially when they're so talented, I just pray they don't laugh at what I send and appreciate the gesture :0)

So thanks my lovely friend Kate, I had some cool images to play with. I didn't wanna go all PTI, I fancy a change every now and again. I particularly fancied colouring as it's something I love to do to relieve the stresses of the days and just be a kid again ;DSo a Bella image it was, and this image really suited the recipient in my opinion! This is the first easel card that I've made, and I have to say I love how simple they are to make and how fantastic they look! I've seen a lot of these around Blogland, they all look so different to your average card!
To add some scrummyness (Yes, I know that isn't a word!) I applied some glossy accents to the frosting on the cupcake. I have to confess, I was sooooo close to actually licking it LOL! IRL it looked delicious!

Cardstock: PTI Sweet Blush/Aqua Mist Craftwork Cards Winter Wonderland

OK gotta dash, not only is it a bloggin' buddy's Birthday today, it's also my nieces! I'm off to celebrate her 6th birthday - gosh where do the years go eh? I'll share the card I made for her soon! No surprises that it's another easel style card with lots of girlyness and lots of glitter!

Hope you have a super duper Sunday, and the intended recipient of this card has a fabulous birthday and is spoilt rotten - you know who you are ;D

Catch ya later!

Fab card hun - I'm sure 'she' loved it ;) By the way, and it's not that I don't love you, but you do know that Edward Cullen is ALL MINE!! xx

Stephanie said...

Take no notice of madam above, Edward Cullen is clearly destined to be with me - neither of us sleep - EVER LOL

Well, I must say I absolutely love this card, the recipient must be a very, very, (very) special person to receive something so utterly gorgeous HAHA

Love you lots

Alison said...

Oh wow - this is scrumminess incarnate! What a fab stamp, you've done it proud! And that cake is brill, gotta love Glossy Accents.

Welcome to the Twilght world! If you enjoyed Twilight, try googling 'Midnight Sun'. It's a part manuscript of twilight from Edward's perspective.
Will you be going to the flicks to see 'New Moon'? I've roped in a couple of chums to go, I can't wait! LOL
