Seize The Cupcake!

Hello everyone .. here's a card from the weekend I had hoped to post before now, but I haven't been able to get a  decent pic due to the abysmal weather we've been having. Oh my goodness autumn is sooo truly here - first day back at work yesterday after a fortnight off including a week in the sunny Algarve - and I got frozen through and soaked to the bone - typical!! At least it makes you appreciate your holidays !! :-)

Anyhoo here is a card I made for a variety of girly, sweet and colour challenges.

Stamps: LotV "Hello Cupcake";
Media: Promarkers and Flexmarkers;
Papers: Papermania "Lucy Cromwell";
Supplies: pearl hearts from The Hobby House; flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts and Craft4U2Do; lace from John Lewis; sentiment by Craftwork Cards; ribbon, doily and heart buttons from my stash

Moving Along With The Times - Girly, Girly, Prim & Proper
Joanna Sheen - So Sweet!

(I love the way these LotV little girls look as though they are wearing their mothers' shoes)
Craft Your Passion #129 - Buttons & Bows
My Mum's #75 - Hearts & Flowers

I have to admit that yesterday the weather was so miserable, and I was so cold on my first day back in the office, I threw sense and caution to the wind .. and at lunchtime I could be found scoffing a big slab of cake along with a milky coffee, rather than salad and fruit - naughty! lol!!

That's all for today.


  1. Gorgeous card Pauline. I love the image and pretty papers.

  5. Pretty, Pretty, Pretty!!!!! LOVE it...my favourite colour combo!

    I had that Lucy Cromwell paper (12x12 stack) in my hot little paws at a craft shop in New Zealand, but decided to be strong...now I wish I had been as powerless to resist as usual.
