Hello sweet bloggers,

Here is a quick post and another simple card. The cupcake has been cut out from a larger image. I have glittered it and used pop fabric glue on the icing and the flower centres to give added texture. The embossed card stock has been coloured with water colour pencils and I have used glitter on the icing too. Done some faux stitching and the sentiment is actually a ribbon cut and mounted on card stock. I have rounded the corners of the card with my Carla craft punch - not sure they look rounded enough though!

Down below is something that a friend sent me - she is a brave lady and is going through a trying time and yet this came from her.

I will enter this card in:

Thanks for the get well soon wishes for Aleeza. She seems on the mend for sure. Hopefully she will be back to school on Monday morning.

I cannot believe another week has gone by so quickly.

Wish you a pleasant weekend.
