Ice-cream and Cupcakes!!

Morning fellow colour-ees!! How's your week shaping up?! Guess what!! I was back at work yesterday.. and the sun was shining. All day long. While I was stuck at work. All day long. Typical. Today is my day off this week though, so I plan on using it wisely. Catching up with you guys, over on FB and with my emails. I think I have all of my DT work under control and all orders finished up and posted. Notice how I said *think* that means I'll probably remember some important deadline or something.. *touch wood* I'm top of stuffs though! :)

So.. guess what Tuesday brings over at Cartolinas?! Not only some Tiddly Inks goodness which you can scroll down to see.. but also a new challenge over at Passion for ProMarkers!! Yeahhh!! This week we want to see..

Icecream or Cupcakes!

Up for grabs is a £10 gift certificate for the lucky winner to spend over at Joanna Sheen!!

I won't lie, this was a super hard decision for me to make! LOL. I love them both.. but the cupcakes won out. I pulled out my Baker Mae stamp from Some Odd Girl and decided to make a SMASH* page.. about.. CAKE!!

Sorry for the quality of the picture. The weather was horrid when I took this photo on
Sunday afternoon - I'll try and update it when I can with a better one. Mae
is sure looking pasty! LOL.

Pretty self explanatory. "Did someone say cake?!" LOL! :) I looooove cake. The photos are just a few from various trips to different pubs and restaurants. I ALWAYS look at the pudding menu first. Yum.

I've used various embellishments. A homemade doodad, a gorgeous chunky button from Durham market, a doodlebug button and some brads, some die cuts, punches and some twine. I dabbed a few blobs of Willow ink from Adirondack.

I've recently printed a load of photos off, so I'm gonna get prepped to do some more SMASH*ing. I know it's sad.. but I love the feel of my book as it gets fuller and fuller. Flicking through the pages whilst the binding makes that squeeky sound. I just LOVE.

So.. head over to the Passion for ProMarkers Blog now and see what my teamies have come up with.. and whether they've chosen ice-cream or cupcakes.

I'd like to enter this page into these challenges:
Make it Monday - Anything Goes
Homemade doodad - to the right of the bottom picture
Let's Ink It Up - Favourite Embellishments

  9. Uh oh, it looks like something has gone amiss with blogger and your post for TGF's day 5 release has not gone up yet. I feel for you I hate that when it happens!! Anyway. I did see your card and cute little tag on TGF's blog and they are both super cute! I love this image and she looks so cute with the blue hair also. What colours did you use for that? I have a soft spot for tags so I particularly favour that one. Will have to keep checking back so I can pin it to my "tags I love" board...you know how much I loooove to pin!! heeheee. :-)

  10. Your work is awesome! I'm here from the TGF blog. Love your style! :)
