Hope everyone is enjoying their Bank Holiday Monday. It's not really a holiday in Scotland so it's pretty much business as usual here - DD has gone off to school camp for the week, eldest is working and middle child has just left for college. Hubby has gone out to see his Dad so I'm home alone and enjoying the peace and quiet (albeit the washing machine is humming away in the background!).

Glad to see Blogger seems to be behaving itself again and my followers have returned.........it was getting quite lonely here on my own lol A big Hello to all my new followers and many thanks for all the lovely comments you have all left recently.

Back to business - unfortunately the cupcake isn't edible in this instance (shame as I just fancy something sweet)!
Cupcake image from Bits n Bobs, coloured with promarkers then I've used ivory flowersoft for the icing sprinkled with some silver and one of the mixed tubs. Backing papers from Pink Petticoat. Card is finished with some polka dot ribbon which has been in my stash forever and some pearls.
