An awesome Sunday!

Hello there! Hope you're well! I've had such a super Sunday! This morning I spent a couple of hours at Make It! in Farnborough....I spent way too much money on crafting goodies and met some really inspirational crafters. I got to make a card at the Stampin Up stand and I learnt all about Fimo clay and how to decorate pencils and other items! It was fab!

I came home and took a peek around my favourite crafty blogs to see what new challenges I could try and guess what I found on the Sweet Stampin blog...the lovely ladies have awarded me their Spotlight Award! I'm always so touched when someone picks me, there are so many talented crafters out there. Thank you Sweet Stampin Ladies...I'm wearing my blinkie with pride!

After that excitment I decided to do some crafting! I started with some biscuit decorating...I took some cupcake biscuits that I made yesterday, outlined them and then flooded them with icing. It took ages, but I'm pleased with the finished biscuits! I also tried my hand at a fimo decorated glass jar...which was so simple to do and looks fab!

I then got stuck into some card making...and I have to say I love this card! When I was at the show I started talking to some crafters about stamping and using distressing ink, something I haven't done before. Someone showed me some of the techniques and I bought myself some pink distressing ink to try at home.

I used the pink ink on white card to make some unique backing paper, which I think looks cute with the dotty papers! On one pink piece I added a Birthday sentiment that I bought today and on the other I have added a yummy cupcake! I really enjoyed making this card, and I think I'm going to experiement some more with stamping and the different effects you can create.

I'm going to enter this card into the "oh so girly" challenge over at Sweet Stampin this week, as well as the "sweet treats" challenge over at Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge. Finally I'd also like to enter this card into the "lets get sentimental" challenge at PaperPlay. Pop over to all these blogs to see some super cute cards!

Thanks for popping by my blog today,

Those biscuits look scrumptious, Wedgie. And your card is great - distress inks are just the best product and very addicting!!! I can't make a thing without using them.

Thanks for joining us on PaperPlay this week.
