Lucky Sweet

Hello.  Welcome.  It always happens doesn't it?  It's a very unsettled day with heavy showers.  The perfect day to have a quiet afternoon being crafty cos surely no one will be visiting today.  Yeah, right!!  So I have claimed a pressing engagement with some venison and vegetables and retreated to the warmth of the kitchen.  The venison is bubbling so I'm stealing a few minutes to get this post in/out.  

Over at Wicked Wednesday they want Something Sweet so I thought cupcakes.  And when I was oer at YNS yesterday I noticed the picture inspiration was white and purpe cupcakes.  Sounds like a couple of themes made for each other.  I cut my ATC base using Sizzix ATC and corners die, stamped with the cupcake wrapper stamp from Joanna Sheen Bearytastic Day and embossed with white embossing powder.  Then I used DI Dusty Concord and Seedless Preserves, spritzed and wiped.  

Over at PaperArtsy Sarah used a horseshoe and flowers.  Like that idea.  I cut Go-Kreate horseshoe from a purple metal sheet and added some ric-rac tinted with DI ink

The girl is a Nellie Snellen stamp from the Lente set, that'll be Spring.  I coloured her with Promarkers.  I borrowed the cupcake from The Greeting Farm Double Cupcake Anya.  I figured she had two and wouldn't mind sharing LOL.  The flowers are JM34 coloured with FF Pansy and Limelight with white gelly roll highlights.
