Strawberry fields forever


Good morning and Happy Friday everyone (wink, wink, cough - it's my birthday today!).  Well lots of things going on over the last few days, it's my monthly paper crafting class today - helloooo ladies.  Yesterday was my beautiful Niece Evee's 3rd birthday and in honour of her sheer beautifiullness and butterfly obsession I made her this card.  I also bestowed upon Evee (amongst other things) her very first stamp set and ink pads (all butterflies and pink ink - of course).  I will be entering it over at creative card crew (anything goes) and sweet stamping challenge blog (in the garden).



As promised  last time this is the cake my husband made for my Mum's birthday last week - it's was even more delicious than it looks, if that at all possible - double yum!

Hope you have a great bank holiday weekend everyone - I maybe partaking in some 'big shot' retail therapy by the end of this day - whoo hooo!

Supplies from Stampin' Up!
Card stock: Basic grey and whisper white.  Paper: subtles designer series paper stack in wild wasabi.  Misc: dazzling diamonds.  Other:  cluny lace, jute twine, cosmo cricket material girl paper, pins from stash, pink cat studio Betty butterfly digital download and sentiment generated from pc.

Lemme just wipe the drool from my keyboard before I start this....that cake look DELICIOUS! If you ever need help scoffing cakes you know where I'm at right?!
What a super sweet card for Evee - how long until she's a stamping pro like her Auntie?!
And finally, but by no means least: I hope you had a fabulous birthday, sweetie! I did post a parcel your way - I hope it reaches you soon (let me know if not!)
Hugs,
