Cupcakes...a card AND a sneak peek!

Hello there :), I hope you have had a lovely weekend? I know I started with Lauren's Birthday on Friday....then onto our monthly crop yesterday with a lovely bunch of talented ladies who are also very special friends....and then today I have had a lovely lie in and a generally lazy day( having said that, I have ignored my ironing pile that HAS to be done know...the school and work uniforms....that grow overnight!!)
Anyway, I thought I would share some pics with you. This first one is Lauren with one her cupcakes that my lovely and multi-talented Sister made. Lauren had asked if she could have cupcakes instead of a normal birthday cake....all she said was she wanted something bright....and would also love a VW badge maybe if poss.
So, here she is with her very own cupcake....VW badge and all! Nice and shiny silver....and all edible too.

And here are the cakes altogether on their stand. My sister also had rice paper toppers printed with Lauren on cool is that!!! Donna, if you read this, thank you soooo much Hun, you are so flipping lovely (((hugs)))
Because Lauren is a girl after my own heart I just knew she would *need* a cupcake card too LOL, so I set too and made her this easel card...its not perfect so please don't look too close lol, I freehand cut the cupcake and then coloured in a Magnolia with my Promarkers ( I think she is Cowberry Muffin, but could be wrong)
I added a small paper doily, some AC thickers
, crochet mesh netting , Prima blossoms and bling.....and I was really pleased with it...and Lauren likes it too, so that's good!
So, now I have a little sneaky peek to show you.....tomorrow heralds the October Scrapology Challenge
......and its an absolutely gorgeous layout that we had the pleasure of lifting for this pop along, have a looky and hopefully you will want to join in the fun.

Right, I am going to finish my dinner...and then do the ironing :(....catch you soon

Warmest wishes Anita..xxxx
