Let's eat cake!

Hi all...
It's Friday again already and I have done my last market stall this morning. Now I'm a working girl I'm just not around in the mornings. However the cardmaking continues and here is a handmade, calorie-free cupcake for you.

I sat with my scraps bag again in front of the TV and mixed and matched a few patterned oddments together .Yellow Gingham, Red spot and some Pink stripes.

The gorgeous shiny buttons make fantastic cherries.

and the challenges....
1. My time to craft challenge...'Let's eat cake'
2. Die cut dreams...'Gingham'. I used yellow background gingham paper and red gingham ribbon.
3. Stamping vacation...'pick 3'. I chose Glitter, A bit of blue and patterned yellow paper.

On the home front...I've had a sort out in little ones bedroom this week. Getting prepared for her 7th Birthday. One bin liner of toys to the charity shop and a bag of outgrown clothes off to a friend with a 3 year old. We bought her a new desk for her room as this year she has really enjoyed her writing and drawing.
I'm sure you are all keeping busy inside while the rain, thunder and lightning has been going on. At least there are the summer challenges to keep us going!
Hope you leave me a comment and come back to visit me soon.
