Savoury or sweet......?

It's challenge time again at AYLI and our theme this week is

Savoury or sweet?

At the moment it's all things sweet for me, particularly if it contains salted caramel, so just imagine that the cupcake below is oozing with salty caramel goodness!! Yum!!


A work colleague is celebrating her Birthday on Saturday and as she is Coeliac, I made her a gluten free cupcake (in the form of a card!!) complete with glittery icing!!

The papers are the most recent addition to the family, the utter fabulous Maja Designs Summer Crush. The banner was made using a free stamp set and the darling little cat stamp was coloured with Promarkers.

Some challenges to play

Crafty Cardmakers #148 - Make it sprakle (cupcake frosting)
Love to scrap ~62 - Anything Goes
In the pink #78 - For a Friend
Creative Inspirations #328 - Something Sweet

See you soon xx

So cute, lovely soft colours. With you on the salted caramel, yummy

Sammy said...

Oh this is gorgeous Sarah! LOVE those papers. I'm sure your colleague loves it so much she'll not mind you already took a bite out of it! lol.

As for sweet and savoury... Depends on my mood really. I'd say I normally lean to savoury, but there are times when a girl simply *needs* chocolate! :-) x

What a fab idea for your friend, must be difficult to enjoy your birthday with that condition.
Great card and I love that white kitty. :)

Veerle said...

LOL sarah, I do have a big arsenal of craft supplies at my disposal. Unfortunatly NOT FOR FREE !
I too have to buy all my stuff. It's my friend who has the shop and I get good prices from her but not for free. And since I give workshops for her on the craft shows I have to invest a lot in the latest craft supplies so a lot of money goes into this for me too. I am in the same boat as all of you :p
Hugs, Veerle xx

This is delicious! I can just imagine how this little kitty feels after having a lot of this yummy sweet cupcake. So cute, and of course the coloring is perfection. Awesome free banner stamp, and as always, love the perfect background papers. I can picture you riding Surprise over the fall country lanes, and I hope they look just like what I see on my Brit shows! TFS Hugs, and have a great weekend.
