Fashion, ladies and a great sketch!

Hello there! I hope you're all keeping well.

I'm a tad bit excited as its my Birthday this weekend! Everyone always laughs because I still make a big deal of my Birthday and plan lots of things to do...but hey, its nice to have things to look forward to! This weekend I will be going on another Ghost Bus Tour in London, I will be staying in a fancy hotel, I will be having afternoon tea with the girlies and I will be having a fab party....and I can't wait!

Today I have a very girlie card to share with you...the great layout for this card is this week's fab sketch from Sweet Sketch Wednesday...


Isn't that sketch lovely...I'll be using this one again definitly! Did you know that Arlana has nearly created 100 sketches for Sweet Sketch Wednesday...thats amazing! Check out their blog to see how the DT have used this sketch!

The theme for this card has come from this month's challenge over at Sir Stampalot where the theme is "Ladies and Fashion". Isn't that a fab challenge?? I love this sentiment....I'm not entirely sure I've done it justice here as it doesn't quite fit in! The image is another of those fab Kanban stamps...I love them!! I've been practicing with my Promarkers again, and I've added a little glittle glue to the necklace and the shopping bag!

I've also done a little baking this evening, something I haven't done in a while. I decided to revisit one of my favourite recipes...coffee cake! I think I'll call these coffee and cream cakes, as they are coffee sponge cake topped with vanilla butter icing. I've also added a little sparkle to the cupcakes using edible glitter...it hasn't come out very well in the photo, but the cakes really do sparkle!
Thanks for popping by today, see you soon!

Hi Wedgie, love your card great image and such pretty colours you've used. Happy Birthday for the weekend. I love birthdays far more important than Christmas and your birthday is your special day. I alway liked my birthday celebrations, but now I'm getting older and have the two boys I put my time and energy into their special days. Cupcakes look great as well. Have a wonderful weekend and enjoy yourself. Thanks so much for playing along at SSW and good luck.
Hugs
