Woo Hoo...I'm back!

Well hello there! Long time no see! What a busy couple of week's I've had! Well, I've moved into my lovely new flat now (well, I'm here and most of my stuff is here...mum still has some of my belongings, but I'm getting there!). I've bought lots of lovely furniture, including a fab 1950s bureau which is my new craft desk! The flat is really starting to feel like home now.

As well as moving, I've also hosted my Marie Curie Blooming Tea Party...we had approximately 30 people turn up and join us for tea and cakes. Despite a little rain we had a lovely afternoon and raised £274....which means that we've hit our £1000 target now! Woo hoo! My Just Giving page will remain open for some time though, so if you know anyone who might like to donate please send them the link. I want to say a HUGE thank you to all my friends and family who have supported me over the last couple of months, everyone has been amazing!
Lorna and me in our vintage aprons, that coffee pot is a fab vintage find!

All this activity means that my poor little blog has been a little neglected lately and I even missed my challenge this weekend on Sweet Stampin....sorry Abi...I hate letting people down! So I decided this evening that I needed to make some time for some crafting and here is what I've created.....

Sorry this photo is well as a printer that won't work, my camera is also playing up! To be honest I'm not that happy with this card either....I feel like I'm missing my mojo at the moment....maybe I just need time to settle into my new flat??

Anyway, enough of my moaning....this little card is for three different challenges:
Cupcake craft Challenges - Pick your favourite Cupcake challenge - I've picked number 140. Something Beginning With C (cupcakes!)

Pop by all these fab challenge blogs to see all the gorgeous DT cards!

Thanks for popping by today and hopefully I'll be back again soon!

I am excited that you have been able to get settled into your new flat. I love your image Wedgie. It is super sweet. I agree with Judi. It does remind me you all your baking. I have been wondering what you have been up too. We have missed you the past couple of weeks. Have a great week. Nice to have you join us.
Hugs, Nancy
