TLT - Celebration!

Seriously, whoever is making the weeks whizz by please STOP!!! Gosh, I can't keep up!! On the plus side, things are great at the moment, I had a lovely weekend out with my Mum and Grace on Saturday, we then had a BBQ at my parent's house on Sunday and it was wonderful! Very relaxing and we had a bit of a giggle! It's so nice to see Grace enjoying herself too!

This week it's Pam's challenge and she has chosen "Celebration" as the theme this week! Easy Peasy eh?!
I really wanted to make a wedding card using Bride Nikki but she's been AWOL since the show... I have a feeling she's in an important box upstairs that I've just thought about, will have to go and check in a mo! I was then stuck as I'd got a great idea in my mind for a wedding card. I eventually decided to make a little girls' Birthday card using Stack of Cupcakes Cupcake Cutie. Every Birthday a child has should be a celebration, with having a little one myself and with so many friends with children there always seems to be a Birthday coming up so I thought I'd make a girly card!

Sorry about the poor lighting - you can just make out the white dots on her pinafore dress!
I thought I'd give a punched edge to the card a go and I'm rather pleased with the result/effect.
Isn't this little cupcake cutie so deliciously cute?!? I used some of the MME papers - Stella and Rose Gertie (which are divine!!) some Bazzill Bling and some gorgeous May Arts Twill   the card is much brighter than in the photos, I took the photograph a little late and it was cloudy (grrrr go away cloud!) I've been itching to try out the white dotted effect but couldn't find my white paint pen anywhere (hmmmmm, a pattern of losing things/not being able to find things is occuring here - oops!) I did find it yesterday in my box of pencils (I was keeping it safe honest!) so got to work going a little overboard with the dots (very addictive!!)
I used some pretty Prima mini roses to finish the card off, inside I've used the "For a Special Girl" sentiment and when I know who the card will be for, I've left space for the age in the bottom right corner!

I hope as many of you as possible join in with Pami's challenge! It's such an easy theme so no excuses LOL!!!

Have a great week xxx
