Time Well Spent...

Did I ever have a great vacation! I made cards, lazed around watching DVDs, had a fun day with a bunch of card-making addicts ;o), went shopping: it rocked! Unfortunately work's been so busy that I need another vacation already (no time off will go unpunished, *lol*), but luckily it's the weekend, so that'll do for now ;o) Anyway, here's some of the stuff I made:

Meet Cupcake Chloe, who helps Matilda Muffin make all the treats for the orphans and children in hospital. They've gotten so busy, with orders from companies and for parties, that they're looking for a small shop where extremely allergic Matilda can make all the goodies in a sterile space and Chloe can sell everything in the shop! Of course they'll also still keep making treats for the children, out of the goodness of their hearts ;o)

Now, do you remember the girl who went to France to stay with her cousin and got herself a make-over? She's also called Matilda ;o), and we are now a few months on and Matilda is getting very much above herself. The more she gets whistled at in the street, the more airs and graces she gets... The other day she was walking along with her nose so high in the air and her sunglasses on, she walked straight into a street lantern! That bump made her realise that she needed to start acting normal pretty sharpish, so now she's a sweet girl again, still very fashion-conscious but a whole lot nicer!

This I made for the third Double Dutch Challenge :D!

I made this tin for Elzybells' 5th birthday. They're having a party on the blog with tutorials, free give-aways and free shipping in the online shop, so scoot on over there!
