Birthday Cake

While I had my Pooh and friends cartridge out the other day I thought I would have a stab at cutting the birthday cake. It looked a bit flat so I cuttled the top with divine swirls, and inked the edges of the cream card


The little sentiment, which is a clear dome sticker by Papermania reads
"Here's to another year of eating cake everyday"
Now I have a LOT of girlfriends who would think this was the perfect card for them!

The packing continues, which means the whole house is in a state of utter chaos. I escaped down into town for a coffee, and, you've guessed it, my 'friend' who is' under the psychiatrist' asked if he could share my table.....
NO I wanted to scream, I have problems of my own, (luckily not of the psychiatrist variety, just dealing with the coat hangers is enough for me) but of course I smiled weakly and escaped just after he told me in detail about the day centre he attends. Will the same thing be happening in Dunkin Donuts? Wait and see........................................

I have had quite a few enquiries about what type of silicone glue I use, I found a brand called Pinflair which is great, it comes with it's own little syringe, which makes me feel quite surgical as I deftly squirt it on, and is a great consistency. Some of the brands are so stiff you can hardly get it out of the tube. I do find it a great alternative to foam pads when you are layering tiny pieces onto a card. Do a Google search for stockists, I got it online from Craftwork Cards in the UK
