Happy Birthday 'Cupcake'

Good Morning Everybody!

First I would like to say a big Thank You to everyone who left such lovely and encouraging comments welcoming me back.

We've just arrived home after a lovely few days away with friends in Essex which included a 40th Birthday BBQ party.  I managed to keep my eating and drinking to a sensible level so fingers crossed that I get good results from my fasting blood test tomorrow morning.

I've spent the past three weeks sorting out my craft cabin and have now reached the pointy end!

I found this basic card which was cut out several years ago using a Wendy Stenton stencil so decided to finish it off using various bits and pieces that I wanted to use up.

I used a background  scrap stamped with the Hero Arts envelope stamp and pieces of white card for the cake frosting and candle which is a stamp by Wendy too.

The paper on the base of the cupcake is an old snippet of  Papermania paper and the peeloff sentiment and embellishments came to light during my sort- out.

I'm taking this over to play with the girls in Pixie's Snippets Playground - Week 239 


  1. Great card Barb! Perfect for a Birthday and isn't it great that cupcakes have come back into 'vogue'. So long as they're the stamped/paper kind it's allowed!

  3. Amazing just what does come to light when we start to have a tidy up in our craft rooms! It does give you a good feeling though when you actually make a pretty card like this one using up some of the long forgotten bits and pieces.

    Your cupcake card looks good enough to eat, great for the snippets challenge.
