Hi

Hi, Thanks for dropping by.

My name is Eileen but to friends in the card making world I'm known as 'ikki'. (which is pronounced I-KEY) From where or how this came about I'm not sure - it just got shorten from my original craft name of Ikemo by various friends along my crafting way! I started crafting whilst recouperating from an accident, and from my first attempts with peeloffs and paint - I was hooked! Now my passion is my BUG! and now BEADING!

In the Cupboard you will find ideas, news, tips and techniques to help you get more from this fab little machine. So come in - join the fun and Cuttle with me!

Cuttlebug Challenge #24

Make a cupcake - difficult one this. And, like my baking sometime does, this one did not turn out perfecto....still....if you haven't got the right ingredients....and start improvising...and I did....anything can happen. I lost this, and then I lost that, then the glue wouldn't stick, then the card wouldn't open becaused of the cherry, then I put my finger into the glossy accents on the cherry because I was impatient, the list went on, but I won't bore you any more. Here is my little cupcake, faults and all. Megan's only 3 and loves the icing on cupcakes so I'll be sending a eatable cake as well.
Folders for cupcake: Distressed stripes and Divine Swirls

What's wrong with it, I love it. How strange that we both used the same folders for our cupcake :o)
