Sweet little cupcake

Morning folks - are you all enjoying the weekend?
For some reason I came over all girly this morning and made this little cupcake card, with sparkle and ribbon and pretty papers. 

 It may have something to do with the  Simply Homemade magazing that I picked up yesterday. It's new out (from the same people that make Simply Cards and Papercrafts) and is full of cute and gorgeous crafts, with some easy cupcake recipes thrown in for good measure.
I used the cupcake and bunting stamps that were part of a Molly Blooms set, free with this month's copy. 
DP is Papermania, Blueberry Hill. Card Candy covered with Stickles glitter.

Challenges - 
Do You Stack Up - Anything Goes
Fussy and Fancy - Embossing and/or Paper-piecing.  No embossing, but my cupcake is paper-pieced.

Now I have 'girly' out of my system I am back to having some real fun. Whilst hubby is away motor racing I decided I would rebuild the shower!! OK - I was just going to take the old tiles off, but it seems that, whoever stuck them on originally, wanted that shower to withstand a nuclear blast!!
It's only a little hole, isn't it??  He probably won't even notice!!  :D)
