Let Them Eat Cake

Good morning everyone another dull day here in Blackpool but at least its not raining - yet!! Yesterday I just had a nice crafty relaxing day after the housework had been done and I intend to do the same today.  Here is one of the cards I made yesterday:


A cute little Lili of the Valley stamp.  Can't wait to get some of the new ones but I am saving to get more stash at the NEC in a couple of weeks - yippee! Although I have fallen off the wagon a few times - well you can only go so long without getting crafty goodies can't you?  I have coloured her with my Copics and used a Spica pen for the cake stand metal bits and cherries.  Added some ultra fine glitter to the cakes.  I have cut the image out with my Spellbinders.  The sentiment is computer generated.  The papers are First Edition Up Up and Away pad with Coredinations cardstock.  I have embossed the centre panel but you can't see it too well in this picture unless you look really closely.  I coloured the metal corner with alcohol inks again that doesn't show too well in this picture.  I also coloured one of the hearts and the Card Candi.  The button I made with my new Epiphany button maker.  Ribbon and twine from stash.

I would like to enter the following challenges:

Lili's Little Fairies - Afternoon Tea
Card Positioning Systems - Sketch
Simon Says Stamp - Use 3 Different Papers
Crafty Boots Challenge - Food Glorious Food
Copic Challenge - Bright Colours
Just Some Lines - Girly Girls
Totally Gorjuss - Yummy
Crafty Ann's - Bold and Bright
Moving Along with the Times - Lots of Layers
Paper Crafting Journey - Make it Cute

My blooming fridge isn't working so I need to try and find a repair person to come out - that will be fun.  It's an integrated fridge freezer but the freezer appears to be okay so I don't know what's going on there sigh.  A big thank you for looking and lovely comments you leave, take care xx
