Sweet Wishes

I just love Cupcakes as you can probably tell from my name :O)

So I love to make cards using them. The Dreamy Papers I used were ideal to go with this sweet cupcake image as they are sweet and cute too.

I paper pieced some of the paper onto the cupcake too which I think looks very sweet.

Here is the card...

Boy O Boy

Boy oh Boy, I find male cards so hard to do! I think it is because I can't use all my usual bits and bobs like buttons, flowers, lace, scallops etc etc to embellish a male card.

I just keep these simple now and I use this method:

boy colours
square shapes,
not overly cluttered
boy type image which is not overly complicated on the colouring
a non slushy sentiment

Well it works for me :O) ... here is the card...

Pretty Colours - Basic Card Making Papers

We have a new collection out today which is a range of basic pretty colour papers. These are really pretty pastel and muted colour papers which I use all the time for the insides of my cards, card inserts and background for matting and layering.

Only 99p for this collection, we know you will love them and just use them all the time!

Cupcake Cushion Covers ...

I have been sooooooo busy today cleaning and choresy-type stuff but I did manage to get time to make some cushions for my kitchen chairs.

I had bought some REALLY cute tea towels featuring my favourite thing ... CUPCAKES. In the end 6 teatowels only made 2 cushions, (so I shall have to buy more! oops!).

Here they are:

closer up:

I pieced the tea towels over cushion pads that I had already and put in some holes and gromets with my crop o dile and threaded through pretty ribbons.

I am really pleased with them and can't wait to make more!
