CYDA Challenge #27 ~ Cupcakes

What a lovely day it's been here in East Yorkshire so far, just got back from a morning walking along the beach at Hornsea, then fish and chips for our lunch, which was lovely as long as you could keep away from all the ladybugs and wasps, thankfully once we got walking along the water's edge they didnt bother us so much, so eating your fish and chips whilst paddling is highly  Unforunately the cloud seems to be building up now, but it was nice to get out in the pleasant weather.

Sorry my CYDA challenge post is late today I was half way to Hornsea when I realised I'd forgotten to do it...oooops!!!  Anyway here it is now....

Well our birthday challenge saw lots and lots of entries thank you to everyone who entered and all the wonderful birthday wishes for the challenge blog.  Well to kick off our 2nd year Gaynor has chosen our next challenge over at Craft Your Days Away....


A very yummy challenge theme indeed, and there is lots of mouthwatering inspiration for from the fabulous DT and GD, here's mine.....

Unfortunately the cupcakes weren't made by, but the fabby holder was, and I can tell you those cupcakes weren't in the holder more than 5 minutes once the piccies were

CYDA Challenge #26 ~ 1st Birthday Challenge

Oh my it's been some time since I last posted anything on my blog hasn't it.  I've not been feeling too well recently and in turn have had no mojo to craft, trying to work through it though so hopefully there wont be so many long gaps from now on.

Today we are celebrating our 1st Birthday over at Craft Your Days Away, I can't believe it's been a year since our launch, and what a fun journey our first year has been.  We had to say goodbye to a few wonderful DT buddies but we also welcomed some wonderful new teamies.  So our challenge for this fortnight is quite simply...


We want to see all things relating to birthdays for any age and anyone, general or special.

We have some amazing inspiration for you over on the challenge blog by three of our GD's and of course the wonderful DT.  

It just so happens we are off to my brother-in-laws a bit later this morning to a BBQ and party for his birthday and our nephews 21st.  Yep thats why it's raining today and now I'm in doubt that I can wear my new maxi dress I'd bought, still gonna camp there the night though!!  Anyway, so I had two male birthday cards to make for the occassion not good when you have a low mojo as male cards are always a struggle for me at the best of times, but I got there in the end and I don't think I did too bad considering, so here are the two cards which of course fit in with the CYDA Birthday Challenge....

I think our nephew will enjoy this image from Victoria Case!!

And this one is for my B-I-L, not too sure how much he enjoys golf but we've often seen him in a golf jumper, so I think Maurice from Pollycraft will do him

Both images were coloured with Promakers.

We have FOUR prizes up for grabs for this special challenge, so we do hope you will join us in celebrating CYDA's 1st Birthday!!!

BoBunny - Gabrielle Collection 6 x 6 Paper Pad

Roses Selection

Three Packs of Card Candi


Well I hope you all enjoy a lovely weekend!!

Take Care
