'Blooming marvellous' and cherry cupcakes

Here's the finished article in the end - using SU pink card (I really must learn the names of the colours!), teamed with black as I was reminded of this fab colour scheme by Monica recently some random spotted pink ribbon and a Pink Petticoat downloadable digital image. My friend loved the card!

I played safe and only used some water with inks on the brown hair, otherwise using my new SU marker pens that I won (hoorah!) to colour the rest.

I've had a go at making some more cupcakes today, I went for coconut cherry flavours. Unfortunately the cakes completely flopped and didn't rise at all, no idea why as I followed the recipe, but I've iced and decorated a few on the off chance that they tasted ok... otherwise it's the bin for the rest! Off to have a cup of tea and a sampler right now...

Hi Jenny,
Thanks for your comment on my blog. Paula's stamps are fantastic but very hard to get hold of at the moment. I do bag my cards up and what I have done is put them into a sleek black storage box in work and it all looks very professional and has worked a treat. Maybe you should sell yours if you don't already because your style of card is exactly what people want to buy. I thought that they would like the cute and flowery cards but they seem to go for the simple and stylish makes - Michelle
