Weird Weather!

What a day! First off it was REALLY wet and a bit windy....then I had snow...yes actual snowflakes falling from the sky.....then finally some lovely sunshine!! I didn't really know what to do with myself today and with that weird weather going on outside I decided to stay indoors! I've watched a movie, read a magazine, made a red thai chicken and sweet potato curry and done some baking! What a busy, but relaxing day!! are some of my new cards....

First off for the pastels challenge over at Passion for Promarkers I have this sweet card.......

As you probably know I love this stamp, its so scrummy! I've used some pastel coloured baking papers, a punched border in the middle and my scrummy cupcake along with the sweet sentiment.

My second card is for the Green for Go challenge over at Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge this week....

The ladies want to see green feature as the main colour in our creations this week....I opted for a some fresh spring inspired backing paper to match the darker green and fresh pink papers. I'd also like to enter this in the Cute Card Thursday Challenge this week which is "signs of spring". I've used a cute jam stamp on this card because I know as spring is around the corner so is my mum's amazing homemade jam! Yummy!

Finally, another month brings a new challenge at Sir Stampalot and this month they'd like us to take inspiration from some new kits they have. There are some gorgeous backing papers, some swirls, pearls and buttons to inspire us!

I took my inspiration from the cute polka dot paper that features in the kit. I love polka dots, they always make a card look cute. I've added a fun sentiment and some stamped cupcakes to finish the card.

Now I also mentioned that I've been baking....well yesterday I made some mini victoria sponge cakes and today I've made a delicious pile of chocododdles (a fab Nigella recipe which is part cake part biscuit and really rather tasty)!! I'm really glad that I have lots of willing volunteers to sample my goodies otherwise I don't think my clothes would fit anymore!!

Thanks for popping by today and I hope you've had a fab weekend!
