Snow and cupcakes

Happy Monday, I hope everyone had a good weekend! Have I ever mentioned how much I love dance and that I'm a huge Strictly Come Dancing fan? (OK I think I may have lol!) So imagine what a fun night I had on Friday seeing these two:



Not a great picture I know so you might not be able to tell that it's Anton and Erin from Strictly! My mum and I had tickets to see one of their touring shows and they were...amazing!!! Fabulous big band, amazing dresses, incredible dance routines and Anton is HILARIOUS!

It's blooming freezing still isn't it.. I'm wondering if winter is ever going to end. We had snow here in the West Country but it didn't settle. On Saturday I went up onto Exmoor to do some photography and was amazed at how much snow there was up there - I'm sure you're sick of snow pictures but isn't this beautiful:



And isn't he (or she!) cute!:



Onto a card - for one reason and another I didn't get my entry into last week's Stamp With Us challenge on time so here's my take on the inspiration photo that was set.





Recipe:


Stamps - Crazy for Cupcakes
Card - Whisper White/Kraft/Sage Shadow
Paper - Kaleidoscope
Other - Kraft ribbon/Pretty in Pink brads/Copic Sketch markers/Stickles/rectangle Nestabilities



We've also just set a brand new challenge over on A Passion for Papertrey - this time round it's all about black and white cards. Here's mine: (details of the card and challenge are on A Passion for Papertrey)




Thanks for visiting today!

Hugs, Kate xx

Oh wow I'm sooo envious - Strictly is here in Bournemouth but I was too late for the tickets. How amazing to see them in the flesh.

Fantastic SWU card Kate, the colours you've matched perfectly - beautiful..and your PTI card too.

Take care my sweet. I know you're very busy but we do miss you in blogland.

Excellent photography Kate, and what a brilliant subject!
Those cup cakes are so sweet, no wonder you were so inspired to make such a cute card :)

I'm envious too, I'd love to go see Anton & Erin, I know they're due in Brighton soon but it clashes with other things we already have planned :(

Gorgeous cards Kate as usual, really love the colours in the cupcakes! and te black and white is so, so elegant.
