Cherry on top...

Well that's better - the sun is shining, all I can hear from outside is the whirr of strimmers and lawnmowers. Summer has returned if only to be interrupted by the yell and howls of my two little fellas!!

I've decided to brave it and enter a Design Team call (eek!). It's for the Creatalicious Challenges Blog. To be in with a chance, you need to make a card based on the sketch provided and this is my entry:

Doodlebug patterned paper, CC Designs Stamps, Copics, Nestabilities

I've popped two photos on for a change thinking I'd show the layers I added on the flowers but they don't show up very well! The stamped image is from CC Designs Gingersnaps Celebrate set. I love these and can see I'll get lots of use out of them.

I stamped the images with Memento ink and then shaded with Copics to match the Doodlebug paper. Yes it's the same paper I used for my card yesterday! The mini cupcakes were punched out and layered on nestabilities Dahlias to look like the flowers on the sketch. Finished off with a trio of glitter gems. Fingers crossed......

And before I go I thought I'd brave it and pop a few pics taken earlier today. Very brave of me as I don't like having my photo taken, let alone sharing.

Me and my 'tiny pop' Blake

Me, Blake, Daddy (James) and Zac - Zac wanted to escape to play with Grandma and Grandad!
