Fabby Faye Sketcheroony at Cupcake

Good morning! Well it's a dull and foggy day here... not very Christmassy at all, just grey :( But not to worry... I can play my Christmas CDs and pretend... 

I got my Christmas cake made... and it's looking (and smelling) pretty good... even though I'm not a big fan of stuff with currants/raisins etc (nope I don't like Christmas pud, or sweet mince pies). I really made it for everyone else, and my hubby LOVES Christmas cake!

Enough of me rattling on about food, anyone'd think I was Nigella or something (ahem not quite)... but I do make a mean cupcake lol ;) Speaking of cupcakes, our challenge at Cupcake Craft Challenges has been chosen by the super talented Faye, who has made a lovely sketch for us all to follow... 
For my card (above) I've used a cute Penny Black clear stamp from Mimi's Christmas selection, coloured with pencils on kraft. The paper is Doodlebug (I think) from my scrap box.This is our last challenge at Cupcake for 2011, and Faye has very kindly gave us some time off over Christmas and New Year to eat lots of chocolates and drink lots of alcohol, urm I mean to refresh our creatives juices lol ;) I have to say though, I totally LOVE being part of this fab Design Team, all the girls are so friendly and Faye is such a fab mummy! So if you want to join us for the last time this year you have until Christmas Eve at 8pm. This week we have prizes from three fab sponsors!!! Yes three... here they are... Crafty Emma's Store - £10 Gift Voucher, Digital Delights - 3 Images and finally Tickled Pink Stamps - one rubber stamp or 2 digi stamps! So loads of lovely goodies, and that's before Santa does his rounds! And don't forget to pop by and check out what all the other DT girls have made, you'll get some inspiration I'm sure! 

Thanks so much for popping by, it's lovely to read all your comments and visit your blogs too! Hopefully I'll be back with another post before the big day! Good luck with all your preparations!
