Pimms Cupcakes!

Morning! Hope you're having a good weekend!

Remember yesterday I said I'd been baking...well this morning I've been decorating and here are the finished cupcakes....I've created a Pimms cupcake....and topped it with orange and strawberry icing.

I'm pleased with how they look, although I did rush things a little and so the icing isn't as well mixed as I would have liked. I hope they taste good too! The cute stand was a Christmas pressie from Joe, aren't I lucky?

As well as decorating the cakes I've also done a spot of quick crafting....I wanted to make a clean and simple card for the PaperPlay challenge this week...not an easy thing to do for me! I love my colours and embellishments!!  While looking through my stash which is at Joe's I found an old rub on sheet of borders that I've had for ages and I decided to have a bash! I can't remember the last time I experimented with rub ons, but I do remember not liking them very much! However, this morning I found them quite easy to use....

I've used the rub on borders, a stamp, a black pen and a teeny bit of glitter on this card, I hope I've kept it simple enough for the challenge! Since I've tried the rub ons for this card I'd also like to enter it in this week's "try something different" challenge over at Sweet Stampin Challenge.

Right, I'd better get going...I'm running late!

Thanks for stopping by today,
