Here it is...............

Okay be kind this is the first card I have made in a year and a half so it's a bit nerve racking for me. And it took me ages!
I've made my first card for the Cute Card Thursday Challenge. I used to be in their DT and loved it so I thought I owed it to them to do their challenge first.

The challenge was "Animal Crackers".

Stamp: House Mouse
Papers: Bo Bunny
Butterflies: Martha Stewart

It's feels great to be making cards again!


Another digilayout

It's another digilayout but today I'm hoping to get in the craftroom and make, yes make a card. I've to go shopping at the weekend and get some essentials but I think I have enough to make a decent sort of card later.
But on to my layout. Qoqo of Studio Q Designs (I'm a DT member) has been busy with some new designs and today I'd like to show you a layout using some new templates and kit.

I've used:-

Template: Studio Q-Simplicity 2

Kit: Studio Q-Fall Memories

Studio Q's products are available from Scrapbookgraphics.

Honey 'n' Sunflower cupcakes

I had a bit of an experiment this morning. I was stuck in the kitchen cos we are having some rooms painted so decided to make some cupcakes. I knew I was going to use sunflowers so decided to use some honey too. I added it to the sponge mixture. At least I learnt something new today - you need more than a tablespoon to be able to taste it!! But they still were really yummy.

The photo doesn't show the true colours as I had to use my Blackberry. The buttercream is a lovely orange colour, the sunflowers yellow and the middles are small chocolate chips.

Studio Q Beaux Arts Kit

I also forgot to tell you that I do digiscrapping too. I gave up on quite a few DTs for digiscrapping when I was moving but I am still a member for Studio Q. So here is a layout with a new kit of hers called Beaux Arts.

The photo is of my two silly dogs, Milly and Bailey.

The kit is available from Scrapbookgraphics here.



So here is my first photo. My first lot of cupcakes baked in our new home. Not a very good photo as I had to use my Blackberry. Can't find the camera at the moment.

The orange coloured ones are made with an orange flavoured sponge topped with orange buttercream and orange and lemon slices.

The others are sponge with a bramble preserve middle and topped with a pink buttercream and pink and white heart sprinkles.

I think I need to be a bit more creative and give them proper names.



Well at last I think we have a bit of peace in our recently very unsettled lives! Hubby is now out of the army and training to be a train driver at Waverley in Edinburgh. My two eldest are in University and the two youngest started their new school in the village a couple of days ago. They are all very happy and settled. We now have both dogs with us which is great. I am maybe getting a transfer with my job but it's all up in the air at the moment.
We have a lovely new house with views out to sea in a tiny little village called Torryburn in Fife. With 4 bedrooms I finally get a craft room back. I'm so looking forward to making cards again. I think it's been almost 2 years since I made one, not sure if that is right???
I've also started another hobby of making cupcakes and as my cardmaking stuff is still in boxes my first post will be of my cupcakes!

Sorry the blog looks a little bare I'll be rectifying that very soon.
