How Old?

Hello!!! Well this will be my last scheduled post so I hope it's worked! I'll be back with you all later this week so I'll have a little wander around Blogland to visit you all! This week at Cupcake Craft Challenges it's my turn to choose our challenge theme... I've gone with HOW OLD?... basically any special birthdays i.e. 16th, 18th, 21st, 30th, 40th... you get the drift by now I'm sure!

Recently my very good friend Tracy asked me to do a card for her daughter, I'm sure she won't mind me sharing it with you all, it's an easel card with a gothic theme. Here's a close up of the cute and quirky Kraftin' Kimmie image I used called Perfect Poison...

I coloured this cutie with Promarkers then distressed the edges with Distress Inks. The papers were freebies (think they were from a Do Crafts mag free CD)... I made the flowers, added gems, card candy & ribbon, then a message done on the PC et voila!

We're sponsored by Simon Says Stamp this week, and have not one but THREE monthly sponsors as Cupcake turns three this month... Crafts U Love, Mo's Digital Pencil and Sew Sweet!!! Pop over to the main blog to see all the information and to take a peek at all the other lovely DT creations! Also to welcome our new Design Team Member Maarit into our Cupcake Clan, there's some lovely candy on offer on her blog so check it out!

Well that's it for now... back with you all very soon... I have to say I'm sure I'll be missing my craftroom by now!
