Moses parts the Red Sea Cupcakes

Apologies that I have been absent from the blog a lot recently. Now I'm back at work I'm struggling to fit in blogging. Add to that a busy time at church, making a wedding cake for my friend, and that really leaves no time at all. It's not that I haven't been crafting, I have, but getting the time to sit down, sort photos and then blog about it is a struggle.
Here is a quick post to show some super cute cupcakes I made for my Sunday School class when we were doing about Moses parting the Red Sea!
A simple vanilla cupcake with some blue buttercream piped down the sides to be the sea being held back by God and a tiny Wilton gingerbread man decoration for Moses. The kids (and adults!) really liked them. I promise once things calm down I'll be back posting about all my recent crafting!

Give Thanks to the Lord Cherries Card

This was a card I sent to Lebanon with a care package of the new Cadburys marvelous creations chocolate for a good friend of mine who is out there helping engineer some projects.

We met when we were both 18 and taking a gap year before university and doing a Year in Industry at different engineering companies, but right next door to each other. Why did we hit it off? Because we both had WWJD bracelets on and had an instant connection.

I was excited to break out my Country Labels 4 stamps again, and especially these super cute cherries.
I stamped the background cherries using Memento Lady Bug ink and pearlised green ink. I used the same green to stamp the labels 4 shape and also on a scrap of card I stamped an extra cherry to fussy cut to embellish. I cut the labels 4 with my Nestabilities die, and a larger one to layer onto which I embossed with Cuttlebug swiss dots. Some lovely dotty ribbon and  layered onto black card and it was finished!
