Happiness is.....

....some freshly baked cake!

This evening I was given some cake batter....some Herman cake batter no less. Its a German friendship cake that is passed between friends and family. You get given a little batter and some instructions and over the course of ten days you nuture the cake and then on the last day you divide it up...bake one bit and give the other bits to family and friends so they can have their own Herman cake too! Isn't that fab? Thank you Alex for sharing with me!

Inspired by my Herman cake I decided to create a yummy cupcake card (well I don't really need much encouragement do I??).

Hee, hee! Cute isn't it??

I've used a pretty pastel pink backing paper, topped it with some pink and white lacy paper and a pretty mini doilie. I've added my cute sentiment to some more pink paper and then added my trio of cupcakes!

This sweet card is for the following challenges:

Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - doilies are not just for cakes
Allsorts - three in a row

I must also say a big thank you to the lovely Secret Crafter I was their lucky winner last week and have won a $10 Digi Doodle gift exciting!

Pop by both the blogs mentioned above to see all the gorgeous DT cards this week.

Thanks for popping by today,

Wedgie I would like to thank you for your lovely message on my “Monday,Blues post ” when I went to look after Mum and Dad . It was so kind of you and I was overwhelmed by your kindness.
Dad is much better now, he has a recurring abscess , but a course of anti-biotics seems to do the trick. Sadly Mum had a massive stroke 4 years this May and will never be fine, she is unable to move or speak , but she can communicate by facial expressions, Dad is her carer , she has 4 x2 carers visits per day. So when Dad gets poorly I have to step to care for them both. Thank you again for your kindness. I am now back and on track . I made a card last night and posted it this morning before I went out.
Hugs Elaine
