Lots of stuff to show.

I feel that I have lot's of stuff that I've done and only just got around to photographing in the last few days.  Time is hard to find these days, the sunny days mean that I can get stuff done and feel the instinct to get a good clean done on the house and that included de-clutting and deep cleaning the teens room.

Caoimhe's best friend Megan was 14 last week, and along with a gift and some Barbie Cupcakes, I made  her this canvas for her bedroom.  The canvas was a cheap one, but I think the overall effect was really nice.  I totally enjoyed playing with the embossing powders and heat gun to make the bird, cage and flourishes, with black sparkle powder.  The little cameo below was a Primark / Penney's find, they 50c for a pair of earrings that work fab as a brad!

My friend's daughter had a Birthday and I wanted to make a special card for her and really wanted an Angel as this has a significance for them.  I coloured the Angel with my promarkers, and used Glossy Accents to add gloss to the heart and banner.  Some Stickles on the wings added a little bling.  The flower is a Cuttlebug flower die which I love, a bit fiddly but well worth the work.  A quick run thru the embossing folder (Swiss dots) and the card comes together.

I wish I could take credit for the Barbie cake below - this creation was made by my talented next door neighbour Karyn Sheridan who bakes cupcakes and is a Designer Baker.  What's up Capcake? is the name of her company and for all of you who have asked me to make cupcakes and I have said a polite NO - you might want to try Karyn, she is trying to make a business of it and her work is stunning.

Lovely canvas and cards. The glossy accents are really effective on the angel - that is a lovely stamp. I love the cameo you have used on the canvas too. Thanks for sharing :)
