Sparkle and spiders!

Howdy there Bloggettes, gosh its cold! I think that winter is most definitely well on its way! I've got my fingers crossed that none of that horrid white stuff is coming though. Roll on summer I say. Mind you I'm still waiting for this years summer! Somehow I don't rate the chance of that happening too high..... well a girl can dream can't see?

Well I thought I'd wet your whistles with a couple of cakey pictures this week. As you know (if you don't where have you been?) that its Halloween next week so I made a few Halloween cupcakes. Now check out the spiders! ;)) Don't worry they're chocolate so nice spiders with rather big eyes! the OM thought they were crabs! As I pointed out crabs have 6 legs and these clearly have 8.... men huh?

Now these ones have the most fantastic sprinkles! They're bones! Aren't they super? These came back with me from my recent holiday to America. Why can't we get them easily over here? If anyone sees any fun sprinkles please let me know!

Now while I was blog hopping I came across the Sweet Stampin Challenge. This week it was 'anything but a card'..... now these definitely aren't a card!

Now onto non edible treats!

A new challenge has just launched over at Totally Gorjuss This week we want to see some sparkle on your card. And its sponsored by Crafters Companion too, the winner gets a £10 spend in their on-line store.

So this little chap is a Magnolia snowman from last year. I think he's one of my favourites and super easy to colour, oh and super quick too.

Now he's had some Stickles on his snowflake which strangely enough doesn't show too well even with my class act photography..... You can see the Stickles round the edge though! And more surprisingly it was dry! Yes I think that's a first for me photographing a dry card.

This little guy with his die cut borders also fits in a new (to me) challenge blog I came across called Mark's Finest Papers, so I entered him in that too.

Oh and for a treat an arty shot!

Now I decided to take these in the conservatory..... I still had to contort myself into some bizarre stances. Trouble is this time the neighbours could see me! They probably thought I was doing some bizarre exercises or that I was waiting for the men in white coats to call....
