Cupcake and snowflakes!

Ok, before I show you the cards that I just made I want to share a very valuable lesson that I just learnt.....never, ever eat pizza at your craft desk!!!! Yes, I realise now how very silly I was being, and yes I managed to get pizza sauce on both of these cards!! Luckily they weren't finished yet and so I managed to avoid having the sauce as the main feature of the cards!!

Right, lesson over with.....I've made two cards this evening for two different challenges....first off is the fab challenge that has been set at the Creative Cottage this week...they want to see projects that feature food or drink. As you probably know by now I love cupcakes...I love making them for my cards, I love baking them and I love eating them!! Hee, hee!

I've used this sentiment before with cocktails, it seems that it works just as well with cupcakes! I've used some gorgeous papers from the Creative Cottage for the background and the cupcake is made out of paper from my stash. Cupcakes feature quite a lot in the DT cards, take a peek here to see their cute creations.

The second card I created for this week's challenge over at Bah! Humbug! where they wanted to see cards featuring snowflakes.......

I did think about having a pretty background and then having a big snowflake on top, but I decided when I finished stamping and punching that I really liked this simple effect. I've added a little glitter glue and a sentiment made on my computer. Take a peek here to see the lovely DT cards.

So, can you guess where the pizza sauce landed?? Hee, hee!

Right, I'm off to my Brownie meeting now...we've got pack holiday this weekend so need to make sure all the girls know what to bring with them....I've got my fingers crossed for good weather!!

Thanks for popping by today,
