Cupcake calendar

It was such an icky day today - wet and rainy and really dark :(  Though there was an unexpected surprise when a Tornado jet ripped low over Belfast this morning, the noise was amazing and it certainly woke us all up in work!  (turns out he was there for a careers fair!)

Anyway this calendar is for my friend's Christmas pressie and June is her birthday month, thus all the cakes!  I'm not sure of the makes of these stamps - I know the big one with the candle is from High Hopes.  Coloured with watercolour pencils.  All the icing is covered with my clear glitter pen, so there's lots of sparkle, and clear gloss to the little flowers.  Doodled my border to match the little cupcakes.

Day 8 of the Daily Marker 30 day colouring challenge

Fantastic idea making calendars like this. So clever and beautifully coloured.

Your friend will appreciate this so much. She'll know you wish her a "sweet" birthday. Love your doodled edge. You do them so well, they look as though you may have used a stamp.

This is a lovely page Lynne and your doodling around the edge is really eye-catching. We used to live near a harrier air base, and under the flight path!! They would fly at 10pm on Monday nights and my Word it was scary...it taught the boys not to be scared of noise though and bombproof Ed the horse I had at that time!! xx

This is such an absolutely adorable card! I love how you created your own "patterned paper" in the background with stamps! Such a great look and I love how it is festive and heart-warming all at once. You did wonderful work and I'm so glad you shared it with us for this week's Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge!
