Time for Cake?

Evening everyone.  Hope you all enjoyed the weekend.  I enjoyed a lovely walk with Harley Dog, until the little monster went charging in and out of ditches getting himself as filthy as he could - tut tut.  I thought it would tire him out but on our return he only wanted a game of footie!!  I swear that dog thinks he's Pele!!

I have another card to share with you using a cracking image from Saturated Canary.


This is a bit busy I reckon with all the pattened paper and colours so I've kept the embellies to a minimum with just a couple of card candy.

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

Cupcake Inspirations - Photo Inspiration

One stop Crafts - Birthdays
Simply Challenged - Use Layers
Simon Says Stamp - Happy Birthday
Dutch Dare - Birthday Fun
Creative Corner - Girly Birthday

Given the photo image I thought I'd also share the cupcakes I made over the Easter weekend.  I meant to blog them then but forgot so now is as good a time as any.....


They were a basic chocolate sponge with vanilla icing and lickle Easter eggs.  They were very scrummy but did not do my slimming any good.  I have yet to find a light and fluffy cupcake recipe using sweetener as opposed to sugar!

Thanks soo much for stopping by, I really appreciate it.  Enjoy your day!
