Woo hoo...its the weekend!

Hello folks! Happy Friday!

First off I'd like to say hello to all my new followers! Its lovely to see you here! I'd also like to thank everyone for their lovely comments, its so nice to read them all!

Sooo....are you all getting ready to watch the Olympics opening ceremony?? I think I've managed to convince Joe that he wants to watch a bit of it....he's really not that interested though!

I have a quick card for you this evening...its a card that I've made for a work friend who is based in a different office to me. I tell her about my baking antics and she'd really like to sample some of my cakes, but she is based quite far away and I doubt they'd travel very well (I always remember sending my aunt and uncle in Bognor decorated gingerbread men one year....my aunt's was fine, but my uncle's was beheaded!!). Anyway, its Tracy's Birthday this week and I wanted to make her a special card.....


I might not be able to send her a real cupcake....but at least I can send her one that I've made (or coloured!!) - hee, hee!!

I've used fab stripey backing paper, which I have topped with some plain bright pink paper. I've added a border punched by my fab Martha Stewart punch. My sentiment is created on my computer and is backed with more of that pink paper. I've coloured my cupcake with my Promarkers and added some sparkle to the cherry with my Stickles. I've then attached both the cupcake and the sentiment using 3D sticky pads. Finally I added some faux white stitching.

I hope she likes it! I am actually visiting her later in August so will have to take some real cakes then!

I'd like to enter this in the following challenges:

Simon Says Stamp - anything goes
DYSU - for a friend
Digi Doodles - stripey

Pop by all the blogs mentioned to see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created!

I hope you have a fab evening, whatever you're up to!

Thanks for popping by today,
Wedgie xxx
