Tea'rific Birthday Wishes!

Evening All!

Hope you're all well today...hasn't it got very wintery here in the UK all of a sudden! My poor little car really wasn't built for the colder weather, I drive a MX5 (yes it's a softtop and not very practical!) and I feel like I'm getting blown all over the place at the moment!

The food festival yesterday was lots of fun...Becca, Sheree and I manged to sample quite a few things...including a chocolate macaroon, some British chorizo and lots of different cooking sauces..yummy! I also treated myself to a biscuit icing kit, which is very cool and included shimmer dust...yes from now on all my cupcakes and biscuits will shimmer!

So, its that means a lovely new challenge from Cupcake Craft Challenges....and this week we have been given a sketch to play with. Now, if I'm honest my card looks slightly different to their sketch and I hope the lovely ladies will accept my card! I've kept all the main elements...its just my central image isn't in a box. To see the actual layout pop over to their blog. Here is my version....

Basically I made the teapot before I started on the background....and surprise, surprise my teapot was too big to fit in a box! However,  I thought my teapot was quite cute and I didn't want to make it all over again! I hope that's ok with the Cupcake Ladies! I've used a variety of black and white papers for the background, along with some lovely ruby red lace. The teapot is made out of red and white papers and is attached using 3D sticky pads. I then added a bit of glitter!

I'm feeling chilly so I think I'm going to finish up here and tuck myself into bed with my new book!

Thanks for stopping by today,
Wedgie xxx

I think your teapot is fabby. The sketch is open to interpretation and you have something in the middle! I love your backing papers and those beads must have taken ages to stick! I bet you're cold driving an MX5, I used to have a leaky MR2, affectionately referred to at the fish tank! Anyway have a great week and thanks for joining in at Cupcake. xxx
