I hope you are keeping well and had a lovely week. Today my posts are scheduled as its the first round of the British Drifting Championships and I will be spending the day at the side of a race track in Kent watching Joe slide around the track. I have my fingers crossed that the weather is going to be kind to me....a race track is a cold, drafty place to be on a bad weather day!!
I also have something really exciting to show you...well I think its exciting.....this week I have been lucky enough to become the owner of a gorgeous purple Kitchen Aid mixer!!!
Sorry ....probably not as exciting to everyone else, but I really love it! I've wanted a Kitchen Aid for ages and so I decided to treat myself using some money that my Dad left me. Its going to last me forever and I will use it a lot.....so I think Dad would approve!! Oh and that's a rather lovely banana cake sitting next to the mixer...my first bake made with the mixer!
Anyway, you're not here today to hear about Joe's cars or see my new mixer....no you're to find out about this week's challenge over at Sweet Stampin! Well, this week we have a very pretty challenge for you...we want to see pastels on your project.
Inspired by my love of cakes and my new mixer here is my card.....
Hee, hee....I wish that sentiment was true of all cakes!
This is a new Digi Stamp Boutique image that I recently bought which I think is very cute! I've coloured my image with my Promarkers. I've used a combination of pretty pastel papers both plain and floral, along with a doily cut using a new die. Finally I added some punched flowers and some faux stitching. I'm really pleased with how this card turned out...pretty and girlie and full of cupcakes!
