Slumberparty Cake

Well I had a lovely time at the Wolverhampton meet last week, lots of chatting and laughter going on, some great demos and lots of swapping of ATC's too. I haven't managed to do much crafting since though, I've been busy making cakes this week, I have 4 to do in total including a 4 tier faux wedding cake, for an exhibition.

Today I was busy making a slumberparty cake for a little girl, I've uploaded a picture for you, I thought it turned out quite well. Infact I think it looks so comfy, it makes me want to climb in!

At Last......

I've found some sewing that I CAN do!!!! Faux! just my kind of thing when it comes to sewing. I've done the edges of the Cowboy in faux stitching, I thought it looked quite realistic, shame I can't make clothes with the same!

These ATC's are for the Wolverhampton meet tomorrow that the lovely AngyB from Docrafts has organised. Looking forward to seeing everyone there, it's a bit of a drive for me but worth it.

Inchies Card

I made this card a few weeks back and it's come in handy now, for two reasons, the first being a colleagues birthday that I completely forgot about, the second is the challenge this week on Try It On Tuesday. Somewthing that has at least 3 "Inchies" on it. I've glazed the inchies with clear embossing powder so they look like tiles, well they're meant to look like tiles.

My New Tatty Button Stamp

I couldn't wait to get my new Tatty Button stamps created by the very talented artist Ange Lee. I thought I'd use one to decorate a little box I made for the challenge on Try it on Tuesday, which is chocolate this week....yum! Only there are no chocolates in my little box, I don't have any at the moment :(

Pink Tag

I made my tag using some pink dotted paper with a stamp from Aspects of Design Rubber Stamps inked up with TH Distress ink, Vintage Photo. The flower is made from the same paper and has some script stamped on it using a stamp from Quietfire Design, added a little button and a bit of ribbon.

I'm entering it into this weeks challenge on Try it on Tuesday and also into The Craft Barn concertina challenge.

My First Try With Copics

I spent a lovely day at The Craft Barn in Lingfield today. It was my first visit but it certainly won't be my last.

The lovely Jane Collman taught us how to use copic markers and make a card using Gorjuss Girls stamps. I had a fabulous day, spent a small fortune and felt very pleased with my results and I didn't choose pink!

Red is the colour.....

Seems like red is the colour that's in for cakes at the moment. I have another cake to make this week and that's also in red.

The Minnie Mouse cake was made for a four year olds birthday and everything on it is totally edible including the ribbon around it. I love Disney and when I was asked to make a Minnie Mouse cake it was like it was MY!!

Altered Dominoes

Had fun doing my first altered dominoes today, one of them I have made into an ATC that also doubles as a fridge magnet. I have some magnetic cards the same size as an ATC so I've stuck the ATC onto it.

I used the "Alice" stamp and the "Queen for a Day" stamp from the TJ Designs Rubber Stamps "Alice in Wonderland" which are still some of my favourite stamps. The clock face.......... I can't remember where that comes from. Then I coloured in using Sharpie permanent markers and finished off using a Gold Krylon pen around the edges.

For the green altered domino, the stamp is from a set of mini stamps from Quietfire Designs.

A Few More ATC's

I've made a few more ATC's today that I'm hoping to send off to the Stamp Man swap. The theme for this months swap is "Wise Words" chosen by Yvonne. Well mine have definitely got words on them but I don't know if you'd say they were wise!!!!

These three ATC's are for a swap on Flickr, Let's Swap ATC's. I've finally got away from pink, well for the!!

Pink Again......

Everything seems to be pink at the moment......I'm entering this card into the Try it on Tuesday challenge this week, which is to make a card that has been inspired by a song. Mine was inspired by the song "Elusive Butterfly" by Bob Lind. Pop over and have a look.

I'm also entering, for the first time, into Ooh La La - Pink, Pink and more Pink.
