Sundae Sunday!

Isn't there a song with that in the lyrics? Or is it Monday, Monday? Either way, today is my first Sundae Sunday, (bit nervous actually) so I'm singing it like that for now. So, in case you haven't guessed, Sundae means a new challenge over at Paper Sundaes and it's Pop it Up. We're joined by our regular sponsor, Michelle's.

You know me and cutting things, so the visions that came to my head of exploding boxes and pop up parts had me hyperventilating! I took myself off to the kitchen for a spot of Curtain Twitching Activity and when my heart rate had returned to 'normal' (builders were indoors - Boo!) I came up with a slightly more Fluffie Friendly idea. (Can't go wrong with cake, can you?!)

Sorry about the not great photo, Very Understanding Hubby needed to take the camera to work so it was a bit of a quick job to get a picture. Anyway, 'pop' over to Paper Sundaes and see the awesome creations the rest of the Sundae Girls have made.

BTW, Jenny is having a little giveaway over on her Blog. There's some cute stash up for grabs, take a look.

Jo said...

A lovely card to start with Sundaes! I reckon you're right, cake is the answer! and this card is perfect for you, i'm not a big strawberry fan, so for me, when I look at this card I see rich chocolate cake (oozing with more choklit inside) topped with raspberry cream
(omg, i'm salivating thinking about it!)
