I've Done It Again - another card and more photos!

Well, I'm on a bit of roll, I've managed today's promt on HerSpace:MySpace and joined in the this week's dare over on Daring Card Makers.

First, the card. This weeks dare was sponsored by Funky Hand and the challenge was to make a card using a template posted on the DCM blog (view here). I needed to do a birthday card ready for when I go back to work tomorrow and so it provided some much needed inspiration. Here's the finished item:
I used K&CO Amy Butler papers, hobbycraft ribbon, cuttlebug cake die, cuttlebug bloom dots embossing folder and more Sizzix felt flowers.

Today's HerSpace:MySpace prompt was 'Sweet'. I don't need much encouragement to find 'Sweet' in my space, although I found these babies down at the Spar this morning and decided to give them a good home.

I love Tunnocks tea cakes and I've found out via the wonder of the interweb and the fabulous I Like website that they have a tea room at the factory. A trip (further) up north beckons methinks! (Check out the I Like pics of the tea room here)

I also found another sweet in my space courtesy of my sugar pourer as I have been doing lots of brewing up for the joiner who is working hard on the new Crafty Blogger kitchen.
Over the last week I've also discovered the joy of Flickr. I hadn't really used the site before but I registered to post my pictures of the Midland Hotel and Morecambe. I'm loving the whole 'group' thing. A couple of my pics were picked up by the admin for a Midland Hotel group which introduced me to the whole concept, but today I found that 'Jug of Tea' has it's own group, so I just had to join and post the pic I had taken on my birthday trip (see earlier post). It's great that a derelict seaside tea hut has been photographed by so many people.

Neat! I love the felt, colors and way you used the sketch! That seems like a bday card that will be saved, rather than recycled.

gorgeous card for the challenge but what really caught my eye was the Tunnocks I used to love squishing the chocolate and then picking it all off bit by bit....I want one now...Love

Great pic.
Tunnocks Tea Room is the place to be :) I live only 3 mins by car from both the factory and the shop where the tea room is. So if you are coming for a cuppa,with a tea cake,let me know.
