My littlest boy turned 2 recently. He’s Toy Story mad at the moment so I bought some little figurines in the Disney Store to put on top of his cake.
It’s an expensive cake to make! But it’s simple to do and a huge crowd-pleaser. Plus the 2-year-old just loved it and that’s the main thing.
The cake itself is three layers of a chocolate orange sponge, filled and covered with chocolate ganache and decorated with Kitkats and smarties. I used 24 2-finger Kitkats and 4 regular-sized tubes and 8 mini boxes of smarties.
I had no cake board (bad planning!) so I cut out a 12 inch scalloped circle from card using my Cricut machine and glued some sugarpaste letters to it. I cut the letters out with Windsor Groovy Clikstix cutters. (A tip someone gave me recently was to take the back ruler off the clikstix….it makes things so much easier!) I finished it off with a red ribbon and bow.
Nick’s card was a bit last minute. I cut out all the shapes using my Cricut machine and Cricut Craft Room.
Thanks for visiting!
This card is for my Goddaughter who is turning 1 this week. The inspiration came from this card by Jackie Mooney. I cut the card base with my cricut; I had a bit of trouble with it and had to get the scissors out afterwards It turns out that the blade was totally blunt! :-O Anyway, I used Craft Room Basics, Ashlyn’s Alphabet and Celebrations. The image is from Mo Manning and she is coloured with Promarkers. Some ribbon, butterflies and pearls to finish.
I am entering this card in the following challenges:

*****I am resurrecting this card for the end of year challenge from Mo’s Digital Pencil – Fave Mo card made by YOU!******
This next project isn’t a card, it’s a sort of framed scrapbook page (frame not shown in the photo below!). It’s a birthday present for my friend Aisling, who is a fabulous singer / musician (and her favourite colour is turquoise :). The cuts are from the Cricut Cartridge ‘ Quarter Note’, which I just love. I added some ribbon, a bling charm and some gems and card candi.
