Cupcake Crafts GDT!!!

Morning All!

Happy Monday to you, wow can you believe it's the 1st August already?!  Scary stuff ay, lol!

So, this is my first post today (1 of 3!) and yep you've guessed it.....I'm a GDT for Cupcake Craft Challenges wahoooooooo!!



I was actually booked in to be a GDT in  April, but cleverly broke my wrist so the lovely Faye let me postpone my GDT slot to August, thanks for having me hon  :o)  

This week the challenge is How Old so we want to see birthday creations with a number on them.  My God Mum asked me to make her friend a card who would be celebrating her 70th birthday, the brief was she loves to cook and loves James Martin, lol!  So I thought this would be the perfect card for my GDT card today, here it is...



As it's a 70th birthday I thought she deserved a special fold card!  Here's a close up of the front fold.  I tried to make another picture frame, this time using heart dies...



And a close up of Chef Tilda...



The back part of the card...



And another close up!...



The inside of the card...



And a side view...



A nice and simples challenge for you this week!  Head over to Cupcake for some more inspiration and welcome Maarit to the team too  :o)

See you in a bit peeps!...

Much love,

I have serious paper envy issues with you today! More scrumminess. I love the little scene you have built up. Living the Vida Loca. Oh. That's a different Martin isn't it?!
Babe, I would wait until next August for you! :)
