Cupcake Craft Challenge 126...Food For Thought!

Morning all...hope everyone had a good weekend and that there aren't too many poorlies amongst you...mine wasn't the best weekend I've ever had...we received some news on Friday that hasn't given us the best start to 2011 but as the old saying goes its a case of chin up and get on with it! My mojo also deserted me this weekend and I'm not at all happy with the way this card has turned out. Unfortunately I didn't have time to make another one so it had to kinda feels like a bin job to me but it hasn't gone in just yet!

We have a new challenge for you over at Cupcake today...the theme has been chosen by lil ole me and it's all about be precise...FOOD FOR THOUGHT!...generally this time of year people are thinking about dieting for one reason or another (me included) and I thought that a food theme would be very choccy on my card just a very healthy apple and of course a beautiful lil girlie too!
