Agent Cupcake

Morning Custard Lovers!

Poor Sweets Cheeks wasn't very well at the weekend. It was a bad sign on Friday when he refused food and said he had a tummy ache. I went to bed early on Friday night as I had a feeling we were in for a bad night and I wasn't wrong.

Come Saturday morning, Sweet Cheeks was confined to a Designated Puking Area, which I told him was a special camp we were going to play in for the day. I put every blanket, duvet, towel and pillow on the floor in the sitting room and we hunkered down in front of CBeebies for a serious Tummy Bug Rejection Strategy.

By the afternoon, whatever the problem had been was safely stashed in the washing machine and normal services were resumed with the mass destruction of about ten sausage rolls, some ginger biscuits and a packet of prawn cocktail crisps!

The new Challenge over at MMCS Challenges is a Card for a Teen. I came across this fabby image a few weeks ago and knew I needed her for this. When I was thinking about how to incorporate her into a card, I remembered this sketch from a while back (Week 56) at Sketch n Stash and then things fell together quite nicely.

Well, you've seen my card, why not pop over to MMCS Challenges to see the creations from the rest of the DT and get all the details about the prize, provided by My Mum's Craft Shop...

Delphine said...

Totally fantastic card, Faye! I love the colours, gorgeous papers, beautiful Agent Cupcake and your design is brilliant, brilliant, brilliant! Sorry to hear SC was not well... I hate when my children are sick... especially Clément for whom there is no puking area, it just has to happen on the floor in the hall, never in the bathroom:-(!!! Sending you BIG hugs (sorry for the transition:-)! Delphine xx
