A Cupcake Decorating Day

Today I went on a Cupcake Decorating Course.  The course was held in a lovely place called A Sweet Little Treat.  I went on the Cupcake class for beginners.  I've always wanted to learn how to pipe buttercream properly. The class consisted of learning how to pipe a buttercream rose (not as easy as it looks), and learn how to make a sugarpaste butterfly, bow and flowers.  Michelle the teacher was brilliant, and by the end of the 3 hours I was covered in edible glitter, and went home with a box of 12 decorated cupcakes.


Anniversary Wishes

My friend celebrates her 7th wedding anniversary next week.  The challenge at Papertake Weekly is a Sketchie Free for all.  I had a look through the different sketches and decided on Sketch #79.  The papers are another paper pad by LOTV called Always & Forever (quite appropriate I think), the image is a Penny Black Slapstick Hedgehog Kisses, the heart border is La La Land, and the heart die in the corner is by Whiff of Joy. The sentiment is Papermania. Thank goodness for sketches. I'm afraid that by the time I'd finished this card the lighting was awful, looks like we could even have some rain, lets hope we don't.

A Messy Painter

My Uncle has done many painting and decorating jobs for us over the years.  He's now hung up his paint and brushes to enjoy retirement.  He celebrates his birthday next week and as soon as I saw this image he came to mind straight away.  The papers are Forever Friends - Best of British, the image is from LOTV Sketch Pad - Vintage Boys, and the stars are Woodware.  Yet again Sweet Sketch Wednesday have helped me with another brilliant sketch #221, and I'm also going to enter this card in to Lili's Little Fairies - the challenge this week is No Flowers.

Sweet Sketch Wednesday 220

I think my Mr Mojo has been on his holidays recently, so I've now got loads of cards I need to make and in a short space of time (serve me right). As always if I'm stuck I can always rely on Sweet Sketch Wednesday for inspiration.  I've used one of my Tilda stamps as the main image, the papers are called Bear Necessities a Nitwit paper by LOTV, the sentiment is Itty Bitty Banners by Stampin Up and the numbers are by Memory Box. 1 down 3 still to go.

Fergus Birthday Wishes

This is a first outing for cute Fergus with his daffodils.  I've used Prima Papers called Sparkling Spring, and the sentiment is a peel off.  I've used the sketch from Papertake Weekly Challenge (Sketch #81). I'm so glad I found Dawny P's sketch as I had a real block for making this card.  I'm also entering Sentimental Sundays Challenge #165 - Things with Wings
