We were away this week for a couple of days. We went down the South Coast to the beach. We experienced two of the coldest days this winter during that time. We knew that we where in for some cold weather so I packed clothes that would see me through a normal tropical winter, 19 or 20 degrees but this time it got down to 11 degrees and of course I didn't have anything suitable with me. Spent a lot of the time cuddled under a duvet. But it was good to get away from the humdrum of everyday life none the less.

Here are my cards for today. I am entering the first one in the challenge at CASology

I had a bit of fun with this theme and made three cards.
I used a party theme stencil to hand emboss the strip of coloured paper at the bottom of the first two cards and some flat backed gems to complete.

A yellow one

and a blue one

and this one is decidedly not Clean and Simple!

I hand embossed the stars and added some glitter glue to them
I also coloured the icing and the cupcake paper with pastel pencils which I smudged with an ear bud.
