The theme for this weeks recipe over on the Chicken Soup blog is cupcakes.  Need more inspiration than just the thought of those sugary, sweet delights?  Then head on over to here and see what the team have put together for you all.

This cute Penny Black stamp as you may remember has been used many times before and I still love it.  As usual Promarkers were used to colour the image. To colour the background in you need to start by leaving the Nestabilities die still in place after cutting out. Then using  distressing ink and sponge applicator apply ink around the image.  Take off the die and a lovely, crisp white image will of been created.

Hmmmm, now I am thinking about cupcakes and feel the need to make some.  I saw a Jamie Oliver recipe recently for Black Forest cupcakes and happen to have a load of Blackberries in the freezer picked in the summer.  How convenient....


  1. Yum, yum, yum - it's good enough to eat Alana. Love the cute card...and I love your new hair do. TFS. ~Glen~
