cupcakes for a couple of challenges

I am just loving the ribbons I received for the cupcake challenge at Crafty Ribbons, they are really fabby I was asked to make 2 cards and I ended up making 4 lol
This card uses the sketch from Mojo Monday and I have flipped the sketch to make the ribbon the right way round! the stamp is by Bootiful Stampz, she is coloured with promarkers, the stripy paper was a scrap I found in the drawer, both ribbons are from Crafty Ribbons.

This card uses the sketch from Truly Scrumptious, the papers were free in a magazine, as before the ribbons are all from Crafty Ribbons. The doily was in my drawer and the cupcake is made with cardstock, the pink icing piece has beads sewn on.

And this last card was just one that came to me in the middle of the night lol I remembered that had the pattern for a stitched cupcake, so I did the icing on its own and cut it out. There is a patterned paper which doesn't really show up in the pic, it was free in a magazine as well lol

I am of to the SECC tomorrow to the craft fair and I am sooo looking forward to it!! I rarely get any time to myself so a whole day is like a holiday to me :o) Also the prospect of buying lots of craft stash is very welcome!!! The Crafty Ribbons people are at the show so I'm taking my cards to hand in to them there :o)
