Well I never!

If you read my post yesterday you'll know that its been a hectic couple of weeks for me, full of mini incidents. It was Monday today and I thought maybe a new week would bring better things...but no! I had a blow out in the middle lane of the A3 this morning at 7:30am! I managed to get over to the hard shoulder...but it was a really skinny hard shoulder and I was really worried that a big lorry was going to hit my teeny car! What a scary experience! I then had to wait in the cold until National Rescue came and rescued me at 8:50am!! I was sooooo cold!!

I really hope that tomorrow brings better things!

Any how...here is my card for today....


This cupcake Birthday card fits in with three challenges:

Cupcake Craft Challenge - Light it up - feature a candle somewhere on your project
Cute Card Thursday - Blast from the past - pick any old challenge...I went for challenge 110 - make your own
Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - recipe - 3 snowflakes, 2 circles and lace

I liked using a red and black colour combo for a change...its a bit different from all the pink and purple that I love so much! I always enjoy making my own embellishments.

Thanks for stopping by today,
