Cake glorious cake!

Hello lovely people,

It's time for a new challenge at As You Like It and our theme this time is...

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

Our sponsor this time is Bunny Zoes Crafts with a £10 voucher

My favourite occasion to make cards for is birthdays because it's so nice to personalise each card with a specially chosen image or their name.

I especially like making girly birthday cards because I can make pretty cards like this one!

LOTV have been bringing back some of the previously retired stamps but sadly not this one...yet!
I totally adore this stamp and use her quite often.
Maybe I am drawn to it because of the size of that cake....yummy!

I don't think I have posted a card with this Happy Birthday banner before and I *really* love it so you will be seeing more of it!

Gorgeous and I love the personalisations. The kraft works really well and your colouring, as per usual, is flawless.

I love the pink and mint together on this fabulous card Kat.... it's one of my favourite combinations and you've really put them together here so well! Also your hair colouring is particularly wonderful - so difficult to do on these small LOTV images... you've got a really light touch! Add that together with your fabulous layers.... the personalisation.... the gorgeous HB banner....... and it's just .... WOW!!!

Big hugs
