Bingo!

Hello there...hope you're all well today!

I've had a lovely long weekend...I really enjoyed seeing Hairspray at the theatre last Thursday...I was singing and dancing in my seat! I spent yesterday at the Stitch and Craft Show at Olympia with my mum and Becca...we had a brilliant time looking around all the stands. I even saw Dawn Bibby...not that mum or Becca knew who she was! I got a fab new stamp set from Kanban that I wanted to use straight away.....


Isn't this stamp cute?! There is also a lady cooking and a lady having tea! Cupcake Craft Challege have a monochromatic challenge this week....and I decided pink was the way to go with this image! I also bought some Promarkers at the exhibition yesterday, and so this was the first image I coloured...the black ink has bled a little so think I need to use a different ink for stamping...but I'm pleased with the colouring...onwards and upwards!

I've also been inspired by The Shabby Tearoom Challenge this week where they are having a game of bingo! We can pick three elements for our card from their grid, as long as they appear in a row. I've gone with buttons, flowers and glitter....the glitter may not be obvious, but I've used it on my flowers and on the dress in the image.

Finally, I've been baking again...though I suppose thats not a surprise to you! I've taken the cake bites a stap further and created cake pops this week.....the lolly pop sticks aren't as chic as I would have liked, but its a start! These are vanilla and coffee flavoured cake pops, I either added icing swirls or dots, a little pink glitter or a handmade flower.

Thank you for popping by my blog today!
