Glamorous birthday girl

Hello lovely people,

I've had a fun but busy couple of days on my course in Bath, and I have slightly more of a clue what to do with the stethoscope I bought myself now!

After all that hard work, I am off to the Hobbycrafts show at the NEC today and will no doubt be treating myself to many new craft supplies!
I also hope to meet up with some wonderful crafting buddies, both ones I have met before and ones I haven't, so I'm super excited about that :-)

While I'm off spending my pennies, here's our new challenge at As You Like It and we have the theme of...

YOUR FAVOURITE...
HOBBY
...and don't forget to tell us why it's your favourite!

Our sponsor this time is

Other than crafting (obviously!) my favourite hobby is baking because I love to make yummy things to share with friends and family and I may have mentioned before that I have a very sweet tooth?!

So this is me with a great big cake...
Ha ha, I wish!

This image is HUGE!  So, it really had to be a CAS design because there's not much room for anything else...just that cute arrow paperclip with the sentiment :-)

This is just gorgeous Kat.... I have my eyes on that big cake too! Wonderful colouring and a fab layout too... loving the paperclip arrow!

Glad to hear your course is going well.... just be careful where you place that stethoscope tho! Hope you enjoyed yourself today at the NEC - I hear you were meeting up with Sue too... I imagine it is a much better show than the Harrogate one, which this year, was pretty awful! Don't forget, we want to see pics of your buys!!

Big hugs

Beautiful card Kat. Can't wait to see your new purchases!

Sue said...

Hi Kat - yesterday was fab and aside from one or two small (ahem) purchases I think we were quite restrained!
This card is dreamy. You have coloured the image beautifully - the stripes on her dress look amazing and wonderful hair too. Your card design is so pretty and stylish and suits her perfectly. Finally - you are one super inspirational lady because who would ever have thought that a paper clip could be so fabulous!
Perfection and cake as well!
Sue...xxx
