Colour challenge

Happy Sunday! I hope everyone's having a good weekend - I'm finally putting the finishing touches to re-decorating my bedroom, while I love the process I'm now at the point where I just want Mary Poppins to come in, click her fingers and it be all done!

Anyway, onto to today's Stamp With Us challenge - today it's a colour challenge based on this photo:



It was my blogging buddy and fellow SWU DT member Sara's birthday this week so I made my DT sample for her, Happy Birthday Sara!


Colours are Real Red, Pixie Pink and Bashful Blue - a bit out of my comfort zone! I coloured the Crazy for Cupcakes with Copics and added stickles to the cherries. As there is no Pixie Pink ribbon I cheated by colouring some Whisper White grosrain ribbon with a Pixie Pink marker...viola, matchy matchy!

To see the other DT samples and to enter the challenge head on over to the SWU blog!

Recipe:


Stamps - Crazy for Cupcakes

Ink - Memento Tuxedo black/Copic markers/Pixie Pink marker
Card - Whisper White/Real Red/Pixie Pink/Bashful Blue
Papers - Bashful Blue DSP

Other - Whisper White ribbon/Crafter's Tool Kit/Real Red brads/Scallop Edge punch


I also wanted to share a few lovely packages that dropped through by mail box this week:

Cosmo Cricket Girl Friday papers..... yummy!


...and Cosmo Cricket Ever After papers....too good to cut!!


And for anyone who loves to bake, who has a sweet tooth or who is a fan of the famous Hummingbird Bakery this beautifully photographed book is an absolute must!


I was so excited about this book being published and true to form is fabulous - the cupcakes, the pies, the cookies.....mmmmm! So many fabulous recipes, I just don't know which one to try first...

That's all folks, have a great Sunday!

HI Kate,

what a gorgeous birthday card. Love the litle bit of cuttlebug at the bottom and colouring the ribbon Pixie was a brilliant idea. The cup cakes look good enough to eat!
