Who the heck is Anonymous????

Is anyone else getting 'Anonymous' blog comment emails? My inbox is full of them...I must get at least a dozen every day. It's getting VERY annoying as when my phone says I have 12 emails I think I'm very popular then realize I'm clearly not hmph!

I thought it was time I made Sophie another card (You can read about Sophie here) . She has had a bit of a time of it of late with recurring infections and high temperatures which leads to hospitalization (and delay her chemo) until the doctors can stabilize the infection.  She underwent a colonoscopy yesterday and should get the results in the next few days. Fingers crossed the doctors will find out what causes these infections and get her back on track. Her treatment is due for completion at the beginning of October and we all pray for good results.

Sophie loves to bake so the most logical stamp to use was a Cupcake Cutie. This is what I came up with....

I stamped Wagon Full of Cupcakes and coloured most of it in with my Copics. Then carrying on our Paper Piecing Challenge theme I stamped the image on 3 different pp's and paper pieced the cupcake wrappers. I think they look rather cool!

I really hope Sophie likes pinks and purples as I realized afterwards I'd used the same colours as the last card I made her!

A cupcake isn't a cupcake unless it has fab toppings so I've used Fluffy Stuff and micro beads on the top cupcake, Gossy Accents and glitter on the next and Fluffy Stuff and glitter on the bottom two. Good enough to eat me thinks lol.

I'd like to enter the following challenges:

Crafting For All Seasons - Stitching Real/Faux
Penny's Paper-Crafty Challenge - Sparkle (Cherry, dress) & Shine (cupcake frosting)
Scrapalicious USA - Anything Goes
The Perfect Sentiment - Anything Goes
Bearly Mine - Anything that Sparkles
Crafty Sentiments - Sparkle
Through The Craftroom Door - Diva or Anything Goes (CC could be a Diva wanting all the cupcakes but if not Diva-ish enough Anything Goes)

I want to thank those of you who have already sent Sophie a card. She has loved and appreciated every one. If there is anyone else that would like to send Sophie a card to help cheer her on her way to full health email me at and I'll give you the address where to send it.

You can still get Cupcake Cuties Wagon Full of Cupcakes or any of the cling stamps at 1/2 price until midnight tomorrow!

Nicole and Ben get back from their honeymoon feels like they've been away for ages and I can't wait to see them! We've had a couple of Face Time conversations though we kept getting cut off. Here are a couple of pictures I took while we were talking....

OMG...didn't realize how awful I looked lol. No time to Photoshop long as they look great that's all that matters :-D

That's me for now...have to get Rocky to the vet's for a check. Hope you have a great weekend.

Catch ya later x

That card looks fabulous, Kerry. I'm sure Sophie will love it. I do hope the doctors will find out what's causing the infections so that she can resume her treatment.
Love the paper-pieced and sparkly cupcakes and that purple PP is so perfect for this card.

Sophie will love your card Kerry, it looks good enough to eat. Let's hope she gets over this blip.I always feel hungry when I see lovely cupcake cards. Re the anonymous comments, you can select not to get anonymous's somewhere in blogger comment's settings ; if you can't find it let me know and I will look for it. I always had mine set not to receive anonymous comments because I would think it most odd that someone would not wish to leave a name? I bet you are looking forward to seeing Nic and Ben, our 2 had a fab honeymoon and looked great. Have a lovely weekend, take care,
