Never Too Old For Cupcake

My second post today.  I am hoping for a better week than last week, on thursday the strong wind blew my £130 out of the cash machine and down the road with not a hope of catching any of it (hubby was not impressed l can tell you). Last night while tidying my crafty things away l knocked my glamour dust tray all over the floor, l managed to spoon quite a bit back - a good job Toby was not aroud my desk or he would have been very sparkly.
Anyhow moan over....... welcome to my new follower Julie - l hope you like my blog and spot a few Stampin Up things along the way (Julie is a SU demonstrator).

On with the card, l have made this for my friend Carole's birthday and l thought l would get her a fancy cake to go with it - l think it is a special birthday but did not want to put 50 on just in case. I have used my new Memory Box Poppy die and can see this featuring on many of my cards, l cut the base with a scalloped grand nestie square die and folded it in half.

Hi Susan

I bought this image second hand from someone and haven't inked her up yet .. .. must get round to it soon.

Eeeekkk ... .. re the cashpoint. I'm sorry. That is such an awful thing to happen. I would be upset for ages.

Loving your card by the way. Great shape.
