Sassy Cupcake

I would like to say hi to my two new followers, I hope you enjoy looking at my blog.

Unfortunately last week there didn't seem to be enough time to get things done and so it was off to Tesco's, Iceland and Wilkinsons on Sunday, it was the fastest I had shopped in years, managed to do it all in 1hr, unfortunately it took me two to get it in the cupboards.  That meant no crafting till the evening and then it was interrupted by ironing.   Of course it didn't help that they didn't want jacket potatoes for dinner, so eventually had to cook the Sunday roast.   My husband appears to prefer dinner to crafting - honestly men.

On this card I used some patterned card from Papermania, this was an excellent buy last year from the Range, for £9.99  you got a 12 x 12 plastic box and 60 sheets of double-sided card.  That made it only 17p a sheet and  a free box.  A bargain.

On this card I used the following:

Image from Bugaboo called Cupcake Girl
Patterned card from Papermania
Red card from Stash
Red ribbon - given to me by my daughter
Red spotted buttons from Stash
Doily from Stash
Pearls from Papermania
Glossy accents for cherry and shoes

I would like to put this in for the following challenge:
