fancy a cupcake

Hi guys, im still here.... LONG POST ALERT lol,
ive been really busy recently with my youngest being ill on and off all last week and potty training too, ive also had a few other personal issues to deal with along with lots of admin work with my challenge blog creative craft challenges, we have had lots of new dt members join us so ive been trying to get organise things etc etc, if you too run a challenge blog you will know how much time and effort go into them lol,
anyway im here with a card to show you which i made for my mums birthday,
Its from some stash ive had for a while but never fails to make a nice card, the dovecraft cupcake papers and decoupage pad!!! i really like them.
Ive layered this one up quite a bit and added extra glitter,
 Here is the complete front view, i havent added lots of bling for a change to this one as i liked it as it was, but i recently got a new martha stewart doily punch which i had to use along with some meiflower satin ribbon,
 I do hope you like it lol. I would love to enter it into a few challenges whilst im here lol,
*Craft your passion - 100th challenge anything goes
*Incy wincy - something old something new (old papers and decoupage, new punch)
*Pile it on - spot or stripes or both
*The poodles parlour - birthday challenge
Now here is one of the reasons ive been so busy ..................... my eldest alex who was 6 in january 1st joined beavers that same week, and after going for 10 weeks or so was finally invested as a fully fledged beaver,
i have had a lot of trouble getting a hobby for alex, something he enjoys doing out of the house or away from me, we tried football/martial arts/swimming classes (which he doesnt love but still does and has recently jumped up a new level)/dance/gymnastics (which he is also trying at the mo and seems to like) lol yep ive tried all those things so imagine the joy that he LOVES beavers!!!!! and its a great thing to love as they learn them how to do lots of great things and be helpful and kind etc etc.
here is a pic of him getting his necker tie which he was really eager to get!!
isnt he teeny weeny lol that jumper is the smallest you can get,
 And here he is proudly holding his certificate!!!! isnt he lovely lol, me and daddy were front row as we made sure to get there early,he now has 4 badges i have to hand sew onto his jumper if i can remember where they all go!!!
So thats my ramblings lol phew!!!!!!
Hope you enjoyed my piccies and like my card, will post again soon as i have more to tell you if you can spare the time with my long post ramblings xxx
