Cupcake heaven

For quite a while now I have been wanting trying to perfect the decoration of my cupcakes!! So you can imagine my delight when I discovered a lady less than 10 minutes walk away from my house who runs classes :D
Why not take a look - http://www.pimpmycake.org/ 
I can definately recommend taking a class or two- I hope to do some more in the New Year, quite liking the idea of the shoe class. 

I had a wonderful day, learning far more than I anticipated, my main aim was to learn how to pipe the butter cream on top. I made all the embellishments - are they still called that on cakes? from white fondant icing. 

I can feel another addiction coming on!!

I need to start collecting so much stuff to make them, just as well its my birthday soon!! 

That's it from me today, off for a brisk walk round the block - gotta wear off some of the calories consumed over the last few days!!

Welcome Lewis

I was asked yesterday to make a new baby boy card.

Its been a couple of weeks since I've made any cards as I've been busy beading, cupcake decorating, knitting and work!

I forgot how much I love it in my craft room, its so snug. I can only make cards, out there as there isn't enough room for any other craft stash so that has to be carried out in other rooms!!

I didn't getting so much use out of this stamp when I bought it. 
I used the sketch from Sketch Saturday for inspiration, Nana's Nursery Baby Boy papers from DCWV, Vintage baby stamp from Funky Kits and assorted punches and peel off letters and numbers.
