Daring Cardmakers, Cupcake Challenge & Lots To Do

This weeks challenger over on Daring Cardmakers this week is "Cafe Chic!" so I decided to get my fimo out this morning to make a few embellies!! I first had fimo when I was about 12 (22 years ago) and I still have some of my original fimo - it's a bit crumbly at first, but once you have it warmed up, it's as good as the stuff I bought 6 months ago!!
I used a shimmery card blank, some handmade paper (lakeland) and a quotation that fits in with the Lots To Do challenge which is "quotations".

I also used more fimo to make some sweets for the Cupcake Craft Challenges. This didn't turn out exactly as i had planned, because when making the sweets I didn't really plan what I'd do with them, and with them being so "lumpy", I wish after I'd made holes in them and used them to thread on wire or something! Never mind, it's done now! Hope you like them.

Very cute Jenny!! I think it's great that you used fimo to make your own embellies! I used to make so many of my own for cards, before I started using stamps! I may have to pull out my fimo now, and get my fingers working.

I was never very good with Fimo Jenny, so I gave up trying a long time ago but you certainly have the hang of it.
That little coffee cup is so cute and cookies look good enough to eat!
