Vintage Cupcake

Morning all!

I'm actually here now the post before was a schedually! hehe!
How is one and all today? The sun is shining and it's rather warm! and here's me the only idiot to be full of flu and a rather horsey cough! urgh!! I'm so hoping it's gone by the weekend i've two shifts at work left before my looonnnng awaited holiday!!!

For those who've been reading my blog the last week, mum's got her doggie!!! She called him Oakley!! he's a darling collie cross spaniel! gorjuss and sooo sweet, will upload a piccy when i can!


Anyways.... today there's not a magnolia in sight, ok ok i lie!!! i do have a maggie card to share but may save that for tommrrow or whenever hehe! Today's card i dug out my fav elizabeth bell stamps out! ummmin and arrrin over which to use, my card actually was meant to be a colour combo of pink, black and green but it didn't kinda end up that way after i delved into more of a vintagey look!

I love these flowers from prima they're gorjuss i can't remember the name of them as i buy so many i end up taking them out of the bottles and into a huge big tub! The metal embellies i got from a kit i brought ummm 2 years ago at QVC ok ok i hord things and don't use them!! hehe (note to self sunday DONT buy things at the NEC that i'm not going to use!) well.... 2 years later i have!! haha!!

I adore these papers they're basic grey's infuse paper collection, i've not used them before i don't think (can you see a pattern happening here?) tut tut us crafters are very naughty!!!

Anyways all in all i think the favvy of my card today has to be that cupcake brad! wooo hooo!! Docrafts FINALLY brought out some nice Tea & Cake collections! i'm not really a huge fan of Docrafts products like i used to be think because sometime they can be quite expensive and quite erm.... naff!!! but ssssh!!! i do like these ones!! hehe!
