Cupcake Tilda!

Morning all! What a lovely sunny morning!

Firstly can I just thank all of you who sent me well wishes for the start of my new job yesterday. My first day went really well and all my new nurses are lovely, I think I'll fit in with the team very nicely!

Wow, there are so many fab challenges out there this week, I wasn't sure I would be able to get around to do that many. So with today's card I have managed to combine 3 of this weeks challenges! I have followed the sketch over at Friday Sketchers, used ribbons and bows which is the theme over at Just Magnolia and I am pushing it by entering it over at Secret Crafter Saturday, which is 'flights of fancy'. Well Tilda has wings so I though that counted! Lol!


Image: from Magnolia sent to me by a friend, coloured with distress inks

Paper: Papermania

: Kraft from stash

Sentiment: from an inkadinkadoo cupcake clear set

Tools: distress inks, sponge, nesties, EK Success border punch - dotted wave, whispers pen for doodling

Misc: spotty ribbon from Hobbycraft, glitter glue

I have made this card for a friend of mine who has just set up her own cupcake buisness. She has a shop / Kiosk at GunWharf in Portsmouth, so if anyone is in the area please pop by and show your support!

I haven't used the pink / brown colour combo for a while {which I love} or my Kraft CS {which I also love} so I was determined to use them both for this card and I am really pleased with the final result, I just hope my friend is! Lol!

Well I was sooooo excited when I got home from work last night as my new Magnolia fall kit had arrived. Unfortunatley we went straight out to a friends for dinner after work and I didn't get back until 10.30pm {hence why I did no blogging last night either} so I have not had chance to play with them yet, I'm sure I will when I get home tonight though!!

Well I'd best go and get ready for work. It doesn't look good if I'm late on the 2nd day! Lol!

Thanks for stopping by today to say hi!

Hugs, Vicky ~x~
