Sweets for my Sweet

Hello everyone, I'm back! We had a lovely holiday in Scotland, saw lots of great places. We even were lucky with the weather, even though on the first night in Edinburgh we almost drowned ;). Here are some lovely shots we made along the way.

                                               Portree, Skye


Gorgeous, no? Now that's we're back home I have another week off work, so plenty of time to get a little crafty ;) Due to the holidays I missed the Card Makin' Mamas challenge of "FOOD OR DRINK", but just got about in time for the inspiration post. Our sponsor this time around is Karber Digital Images, they are offering 2 digital stamps for the challenge winner. The image here is called Cupcake Denny, I had just the right backing paper and stamps to go with this one :) I had coloured the cupcakes ages ago, and I noticed that the Karber image also had cupcakes with little hearts on them so decided to colour them more or less the same. I think it looks really matchy :) You still have about a week to enter the challenge, so come on and join the fun!

Materials used:
* Dovecraft Piece of Cake backing papers
* Karber Digital Image Cupcake Denny, coloured with Promarkers
* Kars Cupcake and sentiment stamps

* Cosmic Shimmer Red Fire Twinkles 
* Gems, ribbon, peeloff, paper roses and pink Nestability shape from stash
* Sentiment on the front: coloured it with Promarkers (I can't remember where I got it from, if you recognise it let me know)

I am submitting to these challenges:
* Totally Papercrafts (Bling It Up)
* Stampin' B's (Ribbon)
* Crafts and Me (Ribbon)
* Little Darlings (Girly)
* Scrapbook Sisters (Happy Birthday)
* Deep Ocean Challenges (Ribbon)
* LadyBug (Summer Birthdays)
* Top Tip Tuesday (Make it Girly)

  8. Hi Ciska, thanks for dropping by my blog and commenting on my Highland holiday photos. Love you photographs, especially the one of Portree. We didn't get that far north this time but did go to Skye a few years ago and loved it there. It looks as though we were in the Highlands at much the same time - we could have passed each other and not know. Your latest challenge is great and your card is cheery and fun - I think I've spotted the items you've chosen from the list :) Elizabeth x

  9. Ciska, your Cupcake Denny looks fabulous on this great card. So glad to see your entry at the Crafts and Me Digi Team's ribbon challenge. Good luck to you! ~ Rose
