A little sparkle and some strawberries and cream!

Evening! Hope you've all had a lovely weekend!

Friday was a lovely day...I hope Becca enjoyed herself....we started the day with a fab brunch in an American diner in London. This is Becca tucking into her pankcakes and bacon....

Now here is a valuable lesson that I learnt...if you go to an American diner...either in America or here....always have the pancakes! They were absolutely amazing! You'll regret it all day if you don't have them...especially if your fellow diner lets you try some!! As you've probably guessed I made the wrong pancakes for me!! And yes, I sulked all day long!! After brunch we ventured to Vinopolis - the amazing wine tasting experience which is located just off the river Thames, near Tower Bridge. If you have an interest in wine...even if its just the fact that you like a glass with your dinner...then this is a great place to visit. Your experience begins with a lesson in wine tasting, then you're set free to sample the delights from the wine tables! The staff are friendly and knowledgable and its great fun!

Anyway, enough of that....onto the challenges! My first card is a pretty Birthday card that I want to enter into several challenges this week...

I based the design of this card on a sketch from this week's Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge, and the colour scheme of pinks, cream and brown came from this week's Allsorts Challenge. Brenda has given two scrummy pictures as inspiration for this challenge - one is a gorgeous looking chocolate cake with strawberries and the other is a bowl of strawberries and cream! Yummy!

After cutting, punching, sticking and colouring my card I decided a little sparkle was in order....which is good because the Cupcake Craft Challange this week is "Dazzle us!"....they want to see our cards sparkle! I added a little pink glitter to my large flowers and tiny dots of yellow glitter to the smaller flowers. I also seemed to add some of the pink glitter to my forehead...I have no idea how!!

As well as this card I also have a card for this week's challenge over at Bah! Humbug! The challenge this week is to use acetate in our cards I'd like to enter this cute Christmas pressie shaker card. Now I have to admit that I actually made this card for their ribbon challenge which was a couple of weeks ago.....but I never got around to putting the card on my blog!! Therefore I'm really pleased I can enter the card this week!

You really should pop by all the blogs I've mentioned above, all the DT have been working hard and everyone has come up with gorgeous designs to inspire us all.

Right, sorry for the long post...I just had so much to share today!

Thanks for stopping by,
