A spooky time and a card!

Hello there, hope you're having a lovely weekend!

Well, I've been a busy bee and so I think this might be a long post today! Do you remember the other day I mentioned I was going on a ghost bus tour in London? Well I went on Thursday evening with my sister and we had such a good time! I laughed so much that I cried! I haven't enjoyed a bus trip so much before!! The tour took place on an old 1950s/1960s double decker bus and it lasted about 75 minutes and took in all the sights of London's ghosts! If you're ever in London I'd highly recommend taking a ghost bus tour!

Of course I've also been crafting this weekend too and today I've made a lovely easel card inspired by three different challenges.....Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge asked for some fancy folding....Sweet Stampin Challenge gave me the colour theme of red, white and blue and finally Allsorts asked for something inspired by nature.

As you probably know I love this stamp of the tree and use it as often as possible! I love the fact that it can be used at any time of year. Pop by all the blogs mentioned above to see how the DT members used the themes this week, the cards are all gorgeous!

As well as crafting I have also been baking...something I haven't done that much of later....but Joe bought me a lovely mixing bowl for Valentine's Day and I wanted to use it! Yesterday I made some lovely fruits of the forest cupcakes using jam for the flavouring. I've iced the cupcakes with some lemon butter icing and added some pink sugar glitter for a bit of sparkle! 

I've also treated myself to Martha Stewart's Encyclopedia of Sewing and Fabric Crafts book...I already own and love her other craft encyclopedia and can't wait to get stuck into this one! Right, I'm off to read my new book and decide which project I want to try first! Enjoy your evening and I hope to see you again soon!

Thanks for popping by today,
