Something Sweet!

Hello all! I hope that you're having a good weekend, whatever you're doing!  Thank you for all your kind wishes - thankfully (fingers crossed and whisper it quietly!) the infection seems to be easing off.  I've still got sores in my mouth and a sore nose(!) but at least the swelling in my face has gone down a bit, so I'm assuming all the antibiotics are finally doing their stuff. The dentist and doctor think that the cyst must be somewhere above my palate and that's why, when it has become infected and swollen, it affects my mouth, nose and face. Lovely!  Anyway, back at the dentist on Tuesday and then hospital on Thursday - wish me luck!

So, less whingeing about me and onto a new challenge over at Joanna Sheen!  This new challenge is 'So Sweet' so this can mean either a sweet & cute image or feature something sugary sweet.  Remember that anyone can enter, but if you want to be included in the £15 Joanna Sheen voucher prize draw you will need to use a Joanna product.  Thankfully, I'd already coloured up this image before I was poorly (as I'm still not in full crafting mood at the moment!)


Those cute little House Mice have obviously been enjoying themselves a little too much with a cupcake!  This stamp is from the HM 'Ice Cream' stamp plate HERE.
I've coloured the image with copics and promarkers
The backing papers are from HunkyDory and I've used a Tonic border punch. The grosgrain ribbon is from stash, as are the flowery gems. I've added a Memory Box 'buckle' and the LaLaLand 'heart banner' die.


So I hope you will join us at the Joanna Sheen Challenge with your 'So Sweet' creations! 
I'm still on soft foods - do you think cake counts as 'soft food'.....? Lol! 
Enjoy the rest of your weekend
Back soon,
Kim x
