Have an Ice Day

The new set of Templates from Crafty Templates is now available, and there are some really cute designs.L eo's based this collection around an idea for a half-card, where the front of the card is cut in half and the template part stands proud.

Each month Leo puts together a fab Goodies Kit to go with the template sets, but this time I opted to go with my own stash - let's face it, I could do with making a dent in the stash-mountain.

The papers for my first card didn't take much deciding on (can you tell why?) and I've gone with the basic Half-Card idea for this one.

I reversed the template and cut it again so that I could use it on the inside of the card too

All papers MME "Breaking Free".

Cupcakes are appearing everywhere at the moment and Leo has featured a few fab cupcake templates over the last year or so - here's another from this month's set.

During the week the new BG "Lemonade" 6x6 pad arrived from Charmed Cards& Crafts (there may have been other goodies in the box too) so it was just screaming to be used with this template.
I cut the "topping" for the cake from pink felt - I was going to sew beads onto it for the sprinkles - but my beading needle refused to be threaded and my patience was running low so I put that aside and went with lots of tiny pink Primas. Do you remember those tiny sugar flower cake decorations? Can you still buy them?

I've saved my favourite card for next time, so please come back soon to have a look at that one!

Last for today, a sneak peek from my card for tonight's Rosie-Dee challenge blog
Hope you enjoyed your visit, please come back soon :)
