Get Splattered!


Morning Fluffers!

Wasn't the sunshine yesterday lovely? Sweet Cheeks and I spent a good portion of the day in the paddling pool with ice cream lollies! (Not blue ones!)


So time for another Cupcake Peeps, and Louise has chosen a brilliant theme; Cooking Up a Storm. This means anything cooking related; cakes, chefs, barbeque's, whatever you fancy. Of course you don't have to ask me to do something/ anything with a cake twice! ;)

We are joined by a fab new sponsor this week, Baby Bud Designs and this is the last week you can enter to be in with a chance to win the lovely stash from Little Claire Designs. Don't forget to take a peek at the super doop cards from the rest of The Cupcakes.


I was determined I wasn't going to put any spots on this card, so went for my second favourite, (well today anyway!) gingham. And seeing there's a little Cheflette on it, I just had to paper piece the trousers too. I also wanted to make the card look like it had been splattered with, well, being in a kitchen. I could really have used a browner splat spray, but I don't have any (that's a green for Baggage Control) so had to make do with dirty gold. I got this gorgeous velvet ric rac (that's a red at Baggage Control) the other week and have been itching to use it. I love it, expect to see more of it! I have it in pink too, but sssh, that's a red at Baggage Control...!! ;)

This is great! I love the checks as much as the dots! The hearts remind me of dots, so you are close! That die cut is very pretty! Love the splats and the ric rac too! My husband has been home a few months now with a hurt back, so not much is getting past him! I keep trying though!
