What I've Been Up To........................

Hello everyone so sorry I've not been blogging much lately its been pretty hectic here over the last few weeks my partners brother needs a good sharp kick up the backside and at 35 years old I expect better I mean he is 4 years older than me and thinks the world owes him a living.
Enough of him lets talk about the fun stuff well I'm sure you have all heard of Eminem the rap singer well let me introduce you to the one and only Emi-Noo Noo lol

He is just like his mummy(me of course) and hates having his picture taken but I think he was pretty good with these two I think they will make a great scrap page when I get round to it.

I have also been doing a little home baking Im not brilliant but think these cupcakes turned out ok what do you think?

I must confess the frosting is a bit of a cheat as its actually Nutella Chocolate spread but tastes amazing and the sprinkles are crushed up dime bar they were so yummy.

Now onto my cards that I have made.

Two very different cards but i had such fun making them as my friend Lorraine(Coldwaters 2) sent me so many pretty things I couldn't wait to use them I do hope you like them thankyou so much Lorraine.
I hope to make more this week and enter a challenge or two.

My 1st Digi Cards

Evening everyone I hope you are all well,tonight I decided to have a play with my Docrafts Digital Designer Tatty Teddy CD rom my first one is to enter into The CD Sunday Challenge who has a great theme of  'Cute Christmas' and I think the shadow feature really adds depth to the layers on the individual elements.

My second one is a Birthday card and I really love this character with his huge cupcake and there are lots of cute embellishments I reduced the size of one of the flowers to go into the centre of the digi ribbon bow and I think it works well.
Would love to know what you all think of my 1st attempts so if you like please leave me a comment weather its good or bad.
Thankyou for popping by to visit me and my blog
