Cards and Cupcakes

So, I am much later than I thought I would be with today's post but I have been really busy! It is Neils birthday today and I have been busy baking the yummiest chocolate brownie cupcakes, I haven't made them before but trust me, mm, mmm, mmmm! I will show you a piccie further down this post but first here is the set of Trendy Trees cards I promised you...

I used Kraft card, thin twill tape and Craft White Ink teamed with Basic Grey for the trunks and sentiments,

Word Window punch with sentiments from the set and Sincere Salutations for the others,

on the corners are 1/4" punched circles covered in Glossy Accents to make faux brads.

These would make a great gift set don't you think??

O.K. onto the cupcakes :0) Now, me and the boys (Zoe was at pottery, shh!) had to test just one, between us I might add, just to make sure they were O.K. you understand! and well, Josh wants them on Friday for his birthday afternoon tea, so they must be good eh??

O.K. so I'm not normally much of a decorator, usually as long as it tastes nice then that's O.K. for me but I have been getting into making the tops look pretty, I mean these are quite basic but I enjoyed myself! he he! {notice my cupcake tea towel too?!}

Right must dash 'cause hubby's home and I need to pamper him, just a little you know ;0)

Bye for now, Hugs Sarah-Jane xx

P.S. I know I still have to draw someone for the Lavender bag giveaway, I will do it later on tonight, thanks for your patience xx
