If I’d a known you were coming I’d a baked a cake ,,,,, :-)

Hi all :-) did you have a nice weekend ?? I hope so :-) I had a FAB weekend !! ,,let me tell ya why ,,,

When I was at the CHA I was the lucky winner of a Rhinestones Accessories Pack for a Silhouette Cameo machine. ,, all together now ,,, Woo Hooo !! :-)

Now ,, I didn’t have a machine ,,but I do now !!!! my lovely postie delivered it on Saturday.

I spent yesterday getting to grips with it so you will see a few creations made using it in the next few days :-)

Did you join us on the House Mouse and Friends Monday Challenge yet ?? If not ,,, PLEASE join in !! It was my turn to choose the theme this week and I need to drum up some extra interest :-) I have made this card for the Mid Way Reminder post :-)

We have 2 fabulous sponsors ,, the lovely Heidi at Simon Says Stamp will be giving one lucky entrant a $25 voucher to the store


the Sweet Stamp Store will be giving a $10 gift certificate too :-)

I used this very cute Happy Hopper stamp, this is called ‘Recipe for Friendship’, coloured with Copics and I used Crackle Accents on the bowl. I cut the base card with a Grand Calibur, using a Grand circle and Grand scalloped circle dies, I have been making a few like this recently and love the shape :-) The papers are from SU ( bought from Mandi) and I used some cream organza ribbon and button from The Ribbon Girl. The flowers are a mix of Prima, Hero Arts and the centre one I bought at the NEC last year, I popped in a Heart Swirl and finished with Robins Nest Dew Drops ( love these ) :-)

I chose this yummy photo inspiration, so you can use any image !! use the colour scheme or the cupcakes !! tis up to you to decide :-) Just remember that you need to use a House Mouse, Happy Hopper or Gruffie to join in :-)
