Zebra Print

I didn't do that must scrapping last week and the scrapping I did do was DT stuff so can't show you just yet! I was trying to get some jobs done and get some new things sorted for my shop but more on that later!

I had a very busy weekend as my sister, Claire and brother-in-law, Andy were down for the weekend to celebrate my sister's 30th Birthday, which was a couple of weeks ago now but she was away so this was the first time we had to celebrate it as a family. I had been thinking for a while what cake to make her and in the end I went with Zebra print icing!! She has just come back from safari in Africa and saw loads of animals so I thought it might go down well!
I also made this little elephant out of icing to go on the top.
Claire loved it! We had a lovely family meal and a slice of cake and some bubbly for afters!
This is the card I made for her, just some random Thickers, (great way to use odd letters up!) and some punched stars but she loved this too!
We had a lovely weekend. We got a light covering of snow of Friday evening and it is still about now I keep wishing for more! We did get a few flutters today but not that much, need more I love snow it makes everything look so pretty.

The challenge for The Studio this week was  'It's our Sunday sketch challenge this week! I've created a sketch for you, and the challenge along with it is to use a monochromatic colour scheme'.

We had a lovely sketch to use but I did find the monochromatic bit quite difficult as I like using lots of different colours in my layouts but i did my best with a lot of blue!
I'm added some new embellishment to my shop tomorrow, not in a kit form but something a bit different so make sure to check them out tomorrow, I would love to see you in the shop!

I can't believe it's December tomorrow already, I'm not as ready for it as I hoped! I haven't done too bad through as my journals ready and waiting to be filled. I will be back with a post about that soon and maybe a couple of pages from it too!

Hope your enjoying the snow where you are, keep warm! xx
