Frosting is yummi

Hey all!
Hope your having a good week mine is mega busy but its my own fault
Yesterday I decided that I would start swimming and also do more walking so today I walked to our allotment which is on the other side of town and then I went to the local pool and managed 18 Full lengths but my knee was clicking and twinging so I had to stop! BUT I set myself the target of 10 lengths as I have not been in a while and I was pleased as I did 18 in the end... Trouble is swimming sure does make to tired! lolI managed to get up to date with all my ironing and also got some housework done too! and then I set to and made Soup for lunch today, I made Bacon and Lentil
Think I will make Mushroom for tomorrow.

Anyway I finished my Ipad cover and I am so pleased how it turned out
I crochet it using some yarn that felts but I am not going to wash it on a hot wash so it does I am going to leave it and as I use it the friction will do the job for me and keep in nice and tight all the time,
If I did a hot wash felt it would be more like an Iphone cover! lol

I started this card a couple of days ago I had a couple of challenges in mind when I set about starting this card and I am pleased with how this one has turned out.
I have used created my own Mega sized faux candy and also added some stick on pearls on the spotty papers but not sure how well you can see the pearls
I also piped liquid pearls on the ginger breadman so it looked like proper yummi frosting,then added stickles to the edges of the image and tag, On the tag the ribbon is blasted with a heat gun to shrivel the ribbon a little which is organza. 
and the scraps for the back

Challenges are:
