I was invited to the Christening of my friend Una’s baby boy at the weekend. As a surprise for her, I made some baby boy cupcakes to bring along for the party afterwards. I bought some handmade gumpaste toppers from Sugar Sweet Delights and made some cupcake wrappers with my Cricut. They went down a treat!
I also made two cards, one from me and one from my Mam:
I’m showing this to Sassy Cheryl for her ‘Show Me Thursday’. Hope you like it!
I bought this image in Sassy Cheryl’s 3 for 2 sale without having anything particular in mind for it.
I was asked to make a retirement card for someone and this picture suited it perfectly! It would also be perfect for a Father’s Day card. I coloured it with promarkers and made the card without using any patterened papers, which is the theme for this week’s challenge over at Sassy Cheryl’s blog.
Challenge #102 – No designer paper
My friend Sinead (my cupcakes biggest fan) asked me for a twin box of cupcakes for her and her daughter for Valentine’s Day. Here’s what I came up with for her!
I made the box from the Cricut Cartridge ‘Sweet Tooth Boxes’. I used an image from Mami Doodles and embellished the box with embossed die-cut hearts, pink gems and polka dot ribbon. The cupcakes are vanilla, with a banana and strawberry buttercream and lovehearts.
I’m entering this project into the following challenges:
Mami Doodles – Red/Pink/White
Shelly’s Images – Love in Colour
Whimsical Designs – Colours of Love
Cutie Pie Challenge – Anything but a card
I love Promarkers – Love is in the Air

PSHappy Valentine’s Day to those of you who are entering into the spirit of things, and STAMP OUT VALENTINE’S DAY to those who aren’t. 😀
There’s a love affair going on in my house; it’s between my Cricut and Craft Room. If you use Cricut Craft Room you get the free online-only cartridge ‘Craft Room Basics’. Aswell as a font, it has some plain and scalloped shapes that can be used for many, many projects.
It’s very easy to cut a shaped card using craft room. If anyone would like the CCR files, just drop me a line and I’ll email the ones I’ve made to you.
I used the plain and scalloped heart shape from Craft Room Basics, an image from Mami Doodles, which I coloured with promarkers, and some stickles and other finishing touches.
The promarker colours I used are: Lilac, Lavender, Cool Grey 1, Cool Grey 3 and the Blender pen.
I could spend an eternity holding your hand.
I am entering this card in the following two challenges:
Passion for Promarkers – Week 135 – Grey & Purple
Mami Doodles – Challenge #42 – For a Loved One

My friend Sarah asked me to make a card for her nephew’s Christening. Mo Manning from Digital Pencil has some gorgeous digis suitable. I am entering this one in the current Digital Pencil Challenge; Anything Goes.
I got some new storage for all my cardmaking equipment and supplies. I got an Expedit unit from IKEA. Hubby put it together and adapted it slightly so I could fit my Cricut in it. Try as I might, I can’t make it look neat. It will have to do!
Now I just have to sort out my baking, knitting & crochet supplies, photo albums, etc etc.
I’d love to see other people’s craft areas if you care to share a link!
I got loads of feedback from my first entry into Sassy Cheryl’s challenge last week, thanks to everyone for the comments!
The 100th challenge is a biggie, with lots of prizes to be won. The challenge is to use a punch and something shimmery. For my entry, I used the image lonely hearts. Here it is:
