Here's my card for the Red/White/Blue with a circle challenge on MSE making cards thread.

I used the MyCraftStudio Violet CD and printed out 2 cupcakes and coloured them in with promarkers.  I tiled the cupcake and printed it out as background paper, then used my circle cutter to make it into a circle.  Used 4 blue buttons with red brads in the corners of the card.   The front cupcake is slightly elevated using silicon gel but you can't really tell in the photo.
I fancy making a coffee walnut cake now

Some stuff about the stuff in the blog


Very new at this blogging lark, so forgive me if I get a bit befuddled. User name is derived from my maiden name of George and the fact that by the time the Olympics are held in the UK in 2012, I will look as if I could compete. And not as a sumo wrestler.

For starters there is only one blog with contain my thoughts, but this might evolve into 3 or 4 when I work out what I'm doing.

In the main it will cover my slimming journey, my quilting exploits, my get fit and stay fit campaign, and my photography. Not forgetting my recent TrollBead obsession.

Should I ever get a lovelife you might get glimpses of that as well.
