Crafting When We Can #11 Valentines

Time for a new challenge at CWWC and the theme is Valentines.  We're being sponsored by Fresh Brewed Designs who supplied images for the Design Team, I've used Bee Mine.




Due to unforeseen circumstances the DT only got this challenge theme and images on Friday so this is a rather off the cuff creation! I made a cupcake, unfortunately we had nothing in the house to decorate it with so I had to leave it plain! The red base has been embossed with hearts but I don't think it shows up very well in the photo!
  • Image: Bee Mine from Fresh Brewed Designs
  • Medium: promarkers 
  • Punch: Martha Stewart
  • Embossing Folder: Cuttlebug
  • Flowers, leaves and gemstone from my stash
  • Sentiment is computer generated.
Do pop over to the challenge blog to see the creations of my team mates.

  5. Mmmmm...cake! There's no way that anyone could ever find even the slightest fault with anything which involves cake or chocolate. It's gorgeous, but you could have wrapped it in a bit of newspaper and I'd have still loved it! Lol. It's seriously cute.
