Sweet Treats......yummy!

Hello, and welcome!

I've been in a bit of a tizz, today........besides struggling with a sore throat and earache, I've been well and truly dumped by one of my best friends.......yep.......she let me down, good an' proper........
She and I have had a somewhat rocky relationship, lately.....she's been temperamental, moody, and downright bad-tempered......okay, we both have......but there was absolutely no need to leave me high and dry, just because I expected her to do something that she has done, over and over, for many moons.......
My printer won't work.....waaaaaaahhhhhh!!!
I spent almost an hour on-line with a techie, who very patiently took me step-by-step through all the processes that might just have put her back in fine fettle.....but, he had to concede that she was a gonner......burnt out her delicate sensors, it seems....sob....sniff.....sniff.....and it would be kinder to get meself a new best friend.....cheaper, too, so I'll go with that, ha!

Fortunately, I'd already managed to print off the sweet image for today's challenge at Perfect Sentiments, last weekend......phew!

I used the really cute Topsy Turvy Cake for this week's DT card.......

The card base is plain white and I used some random papers from my stash, layered onto more white card.......

The sentiment label was on a freebie sheet and I added some sparkle with a Sakura pen onto the bird and butterfly......(I was recently told off by a certain DT member for not sparklin' up my butterflies....wouldn't embarrass Sara by naming her, though, ha!)......I edged the sentiment label with brown ink, for definition......

The very pretty balloons and stars die-cut was a freebie with an order from always includes extras......I get more excited about my surprise goodies than I do about receiving my order, hahaaa!......

I got very peckish whilst colouring up this delish cake.....used my Promarkers and added a touch of sparkle.....the die label is from Nellie Snellen......

I cut a scalloped hand.....from the same stripy paper and topped it off with three Card Candi spots (Craftwork Cards)......

A Sweet Treat if ever I saw one.....and now it's your turn!  Hop over to the challenge blog to take a peek at all the lovely inspiration, then come back with a card and link up.....easy-peasy!

  11. Oh dear, Anne-Marie..i couldn't imagine someone dumping you...i am so glad it was just your was time you probably dumped it as well, because i predict you will be much, much happier with a new one. You will just have to learn a "new" style printer...i recommend one that will print awesome pictures. Your card, as always, inside and out is super!

  12. You really had me going there for a bit thinking a GF would have dumped you!!! LOL! Your card is just too darn cute. Love the image and your coloring and all the rest of your design.

  13. Hi Anne-Marie - oh my, what is a girl to do without a printer? Hope you get your new one up and running quickly. Love this card - great image and lovely DPs. Thanks for sharing your card at Lexi's Creations this time.
