Birthday fun

Hello lovely people,

Gosh, I feel like I have been very busy and productive this week, so what have I been up to?

I've done a lot of cleaning and I think my house has never been so clean all at once!

I also had time to do a little shopping to update my wardrobe for autumn/winter with some new skinny jeans and lots of cosy jumpers.

And I've been beavering away on my customised planner sheets to go in my absolutely awesome shiny hot pink Filofax... I love it soooooo much!

I did find time for some crafting too and today I am sharing my card for our new challenge at As You Like It with the theme of...

YOUR FAVOURITE...sweet or savoury
...and don't forget to tell us why it's your favourite!

Our sponsor for this challenge is My Mum's Craft Shop

I decided to use a LOTV art pad image which has a delicious looking cake on it.  I am definitely a 'sweet' girl...chocolate, ice cream, cake...I'm not fussy!

This simple design and colour scheme works for anyone so I think this is going in my stash for when I need a birthday card at the last minute!

Just a few sweet details...sparkle on the cake, a teeny paperclip to hold the tags on and I didn't even have to stitch because the die cut did all the work for me!

Card recipe;
Image: Jack, Patch & Puss art pad - LOTV
DP: Yours truly - Pebbles
Twine: Cappuccino bakers twine (set of 4 colours) - Hemptique
Tags: Sentiment tags - LOTV
Dies: In & out stitched rounded squares - MFT Die-namics

Do pop over to As You Like It and check out the fabulously creative projects from the rest of the team :-)

I hope you are all having a wonderful and productive week so far and hey, it's nearly the weekend!

Sammy said...

Such a fab card Kat! I do love that image, and the cake looks perfect, especially with the added sparkle.
It is of course a well-known fact that left-over birthday cake (What kind of animal is that!? lol) is a perfectly acceptable breakfast food, and doesn't even contain any calories! Especially when it's a chocolate one (cream optional). x

This is a great image and I love your layout -c&s but very striking. oooh cant wait to read on updates on your filofax makeover :-. Retail therapy definately helps the recovery after housework - well my kitchen was supposed to be done 3 days ago, its still waiting lol - I watched ocd cleaners last night and thought eeh I really need to get my finger out!! (Not that its anywhere as bad as the ones on tv (honest!) just very undtidy lol.
On that note I'm going lol :-) xx

Kat, this is a fabulous card. I never remember to use art pad images - doh! - I love how you have customised the image and your card design with the red card and wonderful twine is gorgeous. I also love skinny jeans and cake but unfortunately those two things don't go together that well where I am concerned!!!
Have a lovely weekend Kat...
