Mint Chocolate Cupcake...

No...this one isn't edible...but I just had to make something using some of the stash I bought on my trip to craft heaven A.K.A. The Glitter Pot with Kaz & Samantha on Tuesday. I've never seen so many Penny Black stamps all in one's what I imagine my friend Squirrel's craft room to look like! ;0)
Here's a photo of my little haul:

I've been a little obsessed with cupcakes...both real, and I had to grab a set of the Marianne Designs Creatables 'Cupcakes' dies, and also a 'Cupcakes' embossing folder by Craft Concepts when I saw them. I had a little play with them at Kaz's afer we'd shopped, but didn't have time to assemble my card, so have finished that off this morning. The papers are both by Doodlebug (I think...not sure, as they're not mine!), and the card is Bazzill...I'm rather disappointed that the Papermania 'Kraft' card blanks aren't quite the same shade of brown as Bazzill 'Kraft', but they're a much better weight than the older flimsy Papermania cards! Oh, and I also used some of my new Card Candi.

Challenges for this card:
I'm going to have a play with some of my other new goodies this hopefully I'll have something else to show you tomorrow.
