Time for cake

Hey all its Tuesday, DId you have a fab Bank holiday?
Those of you in the UK?
I was very busy but had a good few days,
Even managed a 7 mile bike ride!

We have a new challenge for you at
Top Tip Tuesday Challenge for you the Theme is Numbers!

Our sponsors this challenge are:


Shape EZ

I have used a lovely Shape EZ Cherry cake template thank you Tammy Louise, the cake part is Core Colour white wash and I have embossed it with my NEW yes NEW Machine! YAY!!

My top tip layering up your embellishments give your creation depth. 

As some of you may remember a couple of weeks ago my faithful Cuttlebug departed this world with a huge bang! 
My darling husband tried in vain to fix it but sadly it did not have a hope as one of the metal bars inside was split :(

Sooooo I had to decide what machine to invest in
and the Ebosser won! and its AWESOME!
worth every penny!
Fully automatic its just a case of plugging it in
and then pressing 1 power on button on the front and then making the correct layers with the plates, and offering it into the front of the machine, it takes the plates through and then powers down when the plates disengage at the other side.... 
I am soooo happy to have a die cutting and Embossing machine again and the best things its A4 too..

The Sentiment I have made on my PC and says
"A minute on the lips forever on the Hips"
 and the Numbers come in the form of ruler paper that I have cut into strips, Nothing like a cake to celebrate!

The Other challenges I am playing are:

Die Cuttin' Divas - must include a Die-cut - Shape Card
Ribbon Carousel must include spooled item - Celebrations
I have used twine.
Sweet Stamps Flowers
Craft It Up & Link It Up Linky Party by Craftin Desert Divas - Ribbon or Twine - Twine
Lexi's Creations - Focus on the Sentiment

Cute Card Thursday Tie it up 

Hope you can come play our New challenge at Top Tip Tuesday

    Bank holiday was fab because the weather was quite good.. glad we got our grass cut! Love the cupcake you made! eBosser seems to be the IT thing to have at the moment when it comes to die cutting and embossing! Also the A4 platform gives much more versatility.... have fun!
