Cupcake Frenzy.....

Thats what happens here, you seem to get onto a "thing" and then it gets lashed to death. Have made soooo many batches of cupcakes I've run out of many of the stable ingredients that would normally last months, like Vanilla extract (special stuff like black treackle!) and packs and packs of icing sugar... Good thing they have no calories or fat - (Yah! right! - but would'nt it be lurverly!)

The box above was made for my mum to give as a Thank you gift, and the person was shocked as they normally don't get any form of Thank you's - so that was nice.

This batch below was for Warren's 1st Birthday - Lisa had a fab day for Warren, lot's of food and kids and great goody bags for the little ones.
The Cup Cake toppers are a digital stamp from The Cutting Cafe - I asked Regina if she could make me these up and with super quick service she made them and personalised them for me. Lisa was really happy that I went to the effort to have them made and to make them up. Cupcakes were yummy too!

Here is the card that I made for Warren - using my pad of papers from DCWV - Nana's Kids, this is a fab stack that I come back to all the time for kids cards.

Lisa's little man - enjoying his special day!This was the card that I made for my DH for Valentine's Day, can't take the credit for the design of this, found it on a blog by another fab card designer Danielle Flanders and scrap lifted it, as I had the Pink Paislee Cupid range and made it a few weeks ago and delighted to have it just there and ready to be written.

Big kid off for a week and little on off on Thursday and Friday - so have a few busy days ahead. Made 3 cards last night and will photograph them and share soon.

Love Michelle
