WOYWW 145 - cupcakes in the dark!

Or so it seems from this picture!  It's not, it's just the angle I took it at, and the artificial lighting in there!

This is my desk as I left it last night, with the remains of a cupcake making session strewn across it.  Not real cupcakes, but a cupcake card.  This is what happens when your beloved rings up at 3.30pm and asks if you'd do him a huge favour that evening and help him design a simple Mother's Day card his class could make the next day.  Common sense prevailed and I enlisted the help of Aunty Google to find me a decent template.  Et Voila!  One cupcake card duly made....



The frosting part of the cake is actually made from glitter card and is also embossed using a CB folder - not that you can tell it from here, eh?

For anyone who is wondering why I'm blathering on about my desk and its general state of disarray, head on over to Dunnit Dimensions for a looky-see at everyone else's desks!

Ha!  See, I can do short and sweet.... catch you all on the blog hop!  Hope you're all keeping well!

What a brilliant idea you came up with. Bet one son was delighted - hope he can make cupcakes as good as his mother (and the class can too).
Thanks for sharing.

Well done for using aunty google to do something you want. I do love cupcakes in the dark actually I will have them any time of the day or night.

Great card to make en masse, hopefully it went down well with the students too, and hopefully, they didn't have to make it in the dark!

The cupcake looks very tasty :)
I think that´s a good model to make with the students. Simply enough, but the result looks great.
Have a lovely weekend!

Sophia said...

Thanks for stopping by! I'll leave a comment on your site, too. :)

I appreciate your sweet comment. Thank you. I've not drawn dragons before but would love the opportunity!! You can email me some ideas for some illustrations and I do a few to see if you like. bluechairdiary@yahoo.com

Also...it appears I should've not even participated in WOWW, as it seems to be for stampers...something I'm not. Oops. I didn't realize that until I saw the icon on your sidebar this morning. Sorry!

Julia Dunnit said...

By skill of being really behind, it's almost mothers day now!! It's a fab card, I can see that it's glittery but not the embossing...bunt I know it will have gone down a treat, how sweet and kind you are!

Bleubeard and Elizabeth said...

I'm having a terrible time getting Blogger to cooperate with me. Gotta love that glittery cupcake and frosting!

not playing this week, but thought i would pop in to say hello anyway.Like the cupcake card, you can see the embossing really well when you zoom in. I have that folder too - used it for my wedding stationary.
