Pretty Tea Party

Well that's my Husband packed off to Le Mans to watch the MotoGP so I thought this was a good chance to get my craft stash out and get my crafty on!!

Here is a card that I have made for someone to give to their Daughter In Law which is been posted to Australia.  I have never had one of my cards travel such a great distance.

I have used one of my favourite cupcake stamp sets from Kanban.  I have paper pieced the bottom of the cupcake and added some glitter to the icing.

The backing papers are from Dovecraft called Cupcake Boutique.

I have also finished my card off with some lace, ribbon, pearls and a little wooden teapot.
This card is for the challenge at The Shabby Tea Room and the challenge is to include teapot/teacup or petit four/sweet treat, lace/ribbon and pearls.
and to be inspired by this lovely photo!!

Happy 5th Birthday

Well that's the birthday celebrations over for another year and it was hectic.  Having 12 children in your house was hard work. Next year I think we will go somewhere so that the kids can burn off some energy.

So here is the card I made for our little princess.

The little princess image is from My Time Made Easy called Something Magical.  I have coloured her with promarkers and added some glitter to her skirt and crown.
I have also added a little organza fabric flower with a large flower brad added to the centre.
I have forgotten where the papers came from as they came from with a crafting magazine.
This card is for the challenge at the The Shabby Tea Room called pretty prints and the challenge is to use the colours in the photo below and to add fabric.
