Cooking up a storm!

Hello There! How are you today?

Well, I survived another Brownie pack holiday and I've taken today off work to recover. We spent all weekend with our pack in a lovely activity centre, set in the middle of a field. The weather behaved, we did lots of activites and everyone had a fab time! I'm very proud to say I got a gold at archery! Now I'm baking for tomorrow's cake sale at work...my biscuit dough is chilling and my coffee cupcakes are in the fridge. I'm hoping to raise a lot more money for Marie Curie this week.

Talking of baking...the challenge this week over at Cupcake Craft Challenge is "Cooking up a storm!"....they want to see cards with a cooking theme. One of my work friend's has just made her daughter's wedding cake, and I made her this card just before the wedding...

I wanted a pretty card...and I just love that rose backing paper, its so sweet and perfect for this card. My little pinny is made out of paper scraps and ribbon. I added a little white faux stitching to the blue backing paper and the sentiment which I created on my computer. Pop over to the cupcake blog to see all the gorgeous DT cards.

I also have some really exciting news....I've found a flat. I've wanted to move out of my mum's dining room for a while now....I was only ever supposed to be there for 6 months (its 4 years and 2 months later now!!). Its a lovely little flat close to Joe, overlooking a beautiful courtyard with lots of cats! The best bit is the huge kitchen!! I'm picking up the keys next weekend, so its all go, go, go at the moment! How exciting!

Well, thank you for popping by today, its lovely to see you.
