Birthday Cupcake

I hope you are all enjoying your Bank Holiday weekend.  It was nice yesterday, to think that there was still another day until I had to go back to work.

It's been a productive weekend without being manic.  I've fiddled about with craft stuff, Mark's pottered about in the garden, we've done the ironing. We've even managed to get a few jobs done, a little bit of shopping too, and in an hour or so I'm off to the opticians for an overdue eye test.

Here is one of the cards I have made over the weekend.  It's for a daughter of a friend, whose birthday is tomorrow.  I've used the Create a Cupcake stamps and the Cupcake Builder punch from Stampin' Up - I love these, so easy to use and cute with it.  The colours I have chosen are Pear Pizzazz, Blushing Bride and Melon Mambo.  The dots across the card are stamped with one of the Borderlines stamps (also SU).  I added a little bit of bling to the ribbon around the cupcake and Bob's your uncle!!  I love this card!  You know when you just get that feeling that you've made a good one.  It hasn't happened a lot recently, so I am thrilled that this one has worked.  Hope you like it too.

Well, the crafting stash is calling.  Must not keep flicking through the Stampin' Up catalogue - must make cards!!!!

Thanks for dropping by.  Have a good day.

  1. Wow Michelle - it's stunning! I love the CAS design. The detailed little cupcake in its scalloped frame makes a lovely centrepiece against the dotty strip and I love the colours too. Vicky x
