TLT - Mary J's Challenge - Anything But a Card!

I don't know about you but time is just flying by at the moment! Is it because we're trying to cram as much as we can into our day or is because when we were younger we wished we were older and now we're older we wish we younger??? Does that make sense?

Before I get started with TLT I'd like to thank everyone for their wonderlicious entries to last weeks challenge. You are all stepping up your game and it's been wonderful looking at all your creations. Make sure you swing by the Challenge Blog to see if you're a winner!

Today is the flabulously gorgeous Mary J's turn and her challenge is 'Anything But A Card'. It was a really nice change to do something other than a card. This is what I came up with....



This is how my project started TLT life....


.....and this is how it ended up! Whadya' thunk? I'm pretty chuffed with it though as usual the picture doesn't do it justice. The colours are so vibrant and yummy...just like those cupcakes lol.
I started with Core'dinations cs, stuck it to the mini clipboard with my snot gun (ATG!) then trimmed and sanded the edges. I even managed to do the top bit :-D I had a strip of Doodlebug cupcake pp left so added that and a cupcake punched border on top finishing it off with ribbon and a button (the colours do coordinate, honest!)


I stamped and coloured Cupcake Cutie - Stack of Cupcakes with my Copics. Added some Fluffy Stuff, beads, pearls and glitter to the cupcakes, a few crystals to CC's dress and a brad to her hair (I cut off the back so it wasn't bulky).

I promise you won't be disappointed when you visit the rest of the DT...they're all scrumalicious!!

Next week is going to be really special. It's a blog hop with a new release and I can't wait for you to see the new images and the samples the Ladybugs have come up with! We'll have more details for you throughout the week but in the meantime grab the banner for your blog (though you don't have to have a blog to win) and spread the word!


Thanks for taking the time to pop in today ... I hope you have a great TLT!

Catch ya later x
