A bit of shabby chic

Hello campers, hope you had a fab weekend!

I'm amazed that its already Monday evening again...where does time go?? We took the Brownies to London on Saturday, we hunted for eggs in St James Park which was fun. Then on Sunday I watched Joe and his friends play with remote control cars all day....yes, as well as big noisy cars they all now have small remote control cars too!! At least we had a lovely BBQ and I got to relax in the sunshine!

This evening I've been having fun with a little bit of shabby chic crafting and a card with a little suprise.....soooo here's the card.....

Secret Crafter Saturday Challange have a shabby chic/vintage challenge for us this week, and so I've opted for soft muted colours...along with one of my favourite embellishments....a doillie!

"Whats the surprise?" I hear here you cry....well here you are....

Ohhhh....I've created a little secret pocket on my card that contains a cupcake recipe! Perfect for sending to a hint that you want some cake! This fits in with the "use a cooking recipe" theme over at Allsorts this week.

I'm pleased to report that I am really happy with how this card has turned out! I'd also like to enter it in the "sound of music" challenge over at Cupcake Craft Challenge this week! My music inspiration was "If I knew you were comin' I'd've baked a cake" by Eileen Barton.....remember that little ditty?? I bet that one line is stuck in your head now....I think I'll be going to bed singing it! Anyway, send this card to your friend and they'll have no excuse not to have a cake waiting for you when you pop by!

Pop by all the challenge blogs mentioned above to see all the gorgeous DT cards that have been created this week.

Thanks for popping by today,
