First my card.. I received my SWEET STUFF from Jacque (Thanks Jacque) last week and in it was a set of LOTV stamps which I was so excited about! I couldn't wait to colour them up so that night I spent the night stamping and colouring!!! Then I headed over to the LOTV challenge Blog to see what the current challenge was and it happened to be a Sketch, so I got out my papers and made this birthday card for my niece (from my sister). Turned out great didn't it??? I used American crafts cardstock, Kaisercraft Patterned paper, Kindyglitz, kaisercraft rhinestones, swiss dots embossing folder, and I used Twinkling H20's to colour the image!!

Now onto a work of art that my sister, Allison, created. We were asked to make my niece and brothers birthday cakes a couple of weeks ago and our eyes just lit up as we just love to bake and create in the kitchen!! My mum was insistent that i make a chocolate ripple cake so i decided to make it but instead of standing the biscuits on their side with cream in between i decided to try it the other way and lay them flat and layer it with cream!! It worked a treat and Al bought a personalised cake topper (not sure where from) to put on top!!
Because we wanted it for the carousel i decided I would like to make a few changes so after i received permission to do so I cut the tail back and added a leg. You can see the end result in this photo: (Sorry about quality - had to use someone elses camera)
I coloured the unicorns in with my whispers and tria markers and although you cannot see it I also put some pearlized top coat smooch on them also for a bit of shimmer! So that was my contribution to the cake - altering, colouring and cutting out the unicorns. The rest of the cake was all my sisters fabulous work!! And how great does it look?? It tasted just as good!!!
