Oops I've done it again!!

Good morning bloggers wow - another day of sunshine, its like living in the Bahamas lol!!

Well I said on my blog the other day that when I started unpacking my goodies from the NEC I would probably find things I had forgotten about - how true was that!! The first thing was that I had actually forgotten to pick up my purchases from the stand!! The last thing I got was a larger embossing ball (don't know what its proper name is) and embossing mat from the Pergamano stand but I obviously did not pick them up because they are nowhere to be seen!!  When rummaging through my bag looking for the above items I came across the next gem:

What makes this worse is that I didn't buy one and get it home to find out I already had it I actually bought them BOTH on Saturday!!  This is the third time I have done this now.  At least I guess it shows that I liked it but they had so many lovely paper pads I really could of done with buying another one.

I have made a card with a new Lili of the Valley stamp that I got on Saturday:

I have used the sketch on Lili's Little Fairies for the layout.  The image is coloured with Prismas and I have used different glitters on the tops of the cup cakes but it doesn't show very well on this picture.  The flower die is my new Spellbinders Die and I have added some of my new WOW embossing powder to that and the Butterfly (which is three layers but that doesn't show well either).  The papers are Wild Rose Studio "Candy Floss". I would like to enter the following challenges:

Lili's Little Fairies - Sketch
The Crazy Challenge - Add a Sentiment
The Pink Elephant - Butterflies
Crafty Emma's - Photo Inspirations
One Stitch at a Time - Anything Goes
Stamptacular Sunday - Blues, Bling and Butterflies
Crafty Creations - Photo Inspiration

We had a nice day yesterday, went for a walk with my sister and her partner along an old railway line beside the estuary and then had a pub tea in the beer garden!  I couldn't believe that you were sat out in summer clothes (not me I'm always cold) surrounded by daffodils - how weird is that??

I am going to try and do some commenting now Blogger would not let me first thing was doing all sorts of silly things maybe he's calmed down now (notice how we all refer to Blogger as a male - I wonder why??!!). Thanks for looking and take care xx

You really must have liked the pad a lot, lol! Anyway, now you don't have to worry about being afraid to cut up a page ;-) Your cupcake card is delish, we've just had dinner but I wouldn't mind having one or your cupcakes now!

Love the new LOTV image and you made it look extra yummy. Isn't it fab when you get home with your bag of goodies and get to play with them. Would love to have gone but work got in the way, think I'll have to book it off for next one. Enjoy the rest of the sunshine.
