Cupcake Craft Challenge #91 & Some Strawberries!

Hello and Good Morning! It's Monday once again and as I was working this weekend I have the day off! The weather is being kind as the sun is shining but there's still a chill in the air, maybe I'll get to do a bit gardening later today? Monday of course means Cupcake Craft Challenge, and this week it's my turn to choose the theme so I've gone for 'Blooming Charming'... you have to use at least one flower and one charm on your card or creation. Here is my interpretation, it's for my MIL for Mother's Day (which is on 30th May in France)...

The stamps I've used are from Crafter's Companion, Beatrix Potter Mrs Tiggy Winkle collection. My hubby bought these for me at Easter and I haven't used them until now... he said that Mrs Tiggy Winkle had suffercated in the plastic bag as she hadn't seen the light of day! So I just had to rescue her... hence my card! She's coloured with Promarkers, the apers are K&Co and the ribbon, lace etc is from my stash. We have another great sponsor this week at Cupcake, Lauretta's Digi Stamps, who is kindly offering a prize to one lucky random winner! Pop over to the Cupcake blog to check out the other DT creations!

I'm entering this card for three challenges... Sweet Stampin 'Get Personal', Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge 'Metal' and Stamp Something 'Celebrate Something'.

Ok, how about some strawberries? Oh and maybe some yummy ice cream too? My second card for today is one I made using my brand new Penny Black stamp 'Break for Cake'...

I just love this cute little image... which incidentally fits nicely with the challenge at Passion for Promarkers - 'Strawberries & Cream' and the Penny Black Saturday Challenge - 'Flowers'. I've coloured with Promarkers and added some pearls, flowers (made using Woodware Daisy Punch and Card Candy) and ribbon from my stash. The sentiment is from the 'Bubbly' clear set by Penny Black, and I've used my Martha Stewart punch-around-the-page set for the scalloped edge to the card. So there you have it, roll on summer with strawberries & cream!
