A cupcake with a difference...

...hello there....another Wednesday is upon us! As you all know I love Wednesdays because its time for a new challenge from two of my favourite blogs!

I've had a nice evening with my Brownies tonight, we had less girls than normal so we decided to make pizza! The girls loved getting their hands messy with the dough and I have to say they are very creative with their toppings! It was a fun evening! I then came home and got a bit creative with a new mini kit that I've bought from the Creative Cottage, this card is for the Creative Cottage challenge this week where the theme is Halloween:


I told you that it was a cupcake with a difference! This is a fab mini kit with papers and embellishments, Tracy is a very talented lady! Pop over to the Creative Cottage shop to see all her other delights...plus at the moment you can save 20% on anything you buy! As well as the mini kit I added some orange and purple papers from my stash and some fab black glitter - spooky! The DT have all created some fab cards, pop over to their blog and take a peek!

The wonderful layout for this card comes from my other favourite blog...yes you've guessed it...it's from Arlana at Sweet Sketch Wednesday. This is yet another wonderful sketch, and I really enjoyed using it. Take a peek at the blog to see all the gorgeous DT cards.

Finally you'll notice that this isn't a particularly neat offering...there is quite a bit of distressing within my layers. Don't worry...I did it on purpose...this for the "distressing" theme from the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge! I'm not keen on distressing....but I thought it would work well on a spooky halloween card! Take a peek at the blog to see all the gorgeous DT cards.

Right, I'm off for a bit of blog hopping now!
Thanks for popping by today, oh and I wanted to say a big hello to all my new followers!
