A wheely good start to the week!

Hello Crafters! Hope you're all well today.

Well, I honestly can't believe its Monday evening already....where did my day go?? I'm actually quite pleased because my Blooming Tea Party for Marie Curie is taking place this Saturday and I can't wait!

We've got lots of guests, a marquee (the rain won't stop us!!), a vintage theme complete with vintage hair stylist, a fab raffle with lots of prizes and of course lots of cakes!! Here are some little sugar paste roses that made last night for one batch of cakes.



Soooo...its Monday...that means its time for a fab new challenge over at Cupcake Craft Challenge and this week it's Le Tour de France...we can create anything as long as its something to do with the theme...I went with bikes....


I love this sentiment...its perfect for my Brother in Law Jim.....he's a cycle nut ! Although I'm not sure he'd approve of this bike with that cute basket!! He's just riden the London to Paris ride as a team captain for the second year. Mad man!! I also used the colours of the french flag - red, white and blue.

I'd also like to enter this card in the following challenges....

Always Crafting - for men
Love to Create - 3 of something (I went with colours - red, white and blue)
Desmet Designs - things with wheels

Pop by all the blogs mentioned to see the gorgeous DT cards that have been made.

Thanks for popping by today,

Hiya Rachel. This card is perfect for our challenge at Cupcake this week. It's always fab to see what you come up with. Thanks for playing again. Loving the gingham with the bike, it's gives a lovely rustic feel. I wanna go for a picnic on my bike now. Obviously, not a picnic 'on' my bike. But out for a picnic, with a gingham cloth, before stopping and getting off the bike and having the picnic!! ;) xx

Perfect colour combo for this image, Wedgie. And I love the look of those sugar paste roses - they must have taken ages to make. Hope the weather improves for you by the weekend. Hugs xx
