Joe and I live in a block of flats in Aldershot....he's been there several years and I've been there just over a year. We've made friends with a lovely couple in our block called Kirsty and Jake, who live a couple of doors away from Joe's flat. They love my cupcakes and whenever I make a fresh batch I try and take some cakes down to them too. They got engaged recently and are planning to buy a house nearby.....I will miss them and so I decided to bribe them yesterday with some freshly baked cupcakes!
These are vanilla cupcakes, with a two coloured vanilla butter cream swirl and a fresh strawberry on top - yummy! I think I've finally mastered the two coloured icing and I'm really pleased with how these look.
I tried reasoning with Kirsty and Jake that if they move I won't be able to deliver sweet treats like this anymore! Hee, hee!
I'd like to enter these cupcakes in the "it's a gift" challenge over at Allsorts this week.
Soooo.....I also have a little card for you today.....
I love the soft sweet colours of this patterned backing paper and I think it looks fab with the sky blue plain paper, it also has a fab glittered effect to add a little bling factor. My cute LOTV image has been coloured with my Promarkers and I've added some sparkle to her wings with my Stickles. Finally I've added some cute little blue squares and some blue punched flowers, which have glitter centres.
I'd like to enter this card in the following challenges:
Send a Smile 4 Kids - anything goes
Lili's Little Fairies - spots or stripes
DYSU - fantasy
Cute Card Thursday - bling
Crafty Sentiments - flowers
Tuesday Throwdown - squares
Poodle Palour - things with wings
Pop by all these fab challenge blogs to see the gorgeous DT cards that have been created this week!
