Something sweet at Sweet Stampin'

Good morning! The sun is shining, the wind is blowing.... I am being deafened by the sound of wind chimes trying to escape! At least it isn't raining yet! Just hoping the wind drops so I can sit in the garden and read! If not I'll just have to stay indoors and craft, it's a hard life!
The new challenge at Sweet Stampin' is to make something sweet...and here's my card. The rather demented looking fairy is stamped, and coloured with copics . The large cupcake is treated the same way and then shaped to give it a bit of dimension. The tiny cupcakes were made with a free stamp from a magazine and the words on the bunting were part of the same set. Papers also a magazine freebie!
Please pop over to the challenge blog to see what the rest of the team have created for your delectation (at least chocolate and cake on cards are calorie free!). Hopefully you will be inspired to join us! Our sponsors this week are Iva Nova Chest and The Ribbon Girl.
Thanks for calling by, have a lovely weekend! - Oh, it's raining!!!
