Cupcake Craft Challenge DT Card

Hello everyone. So sorry I have not been around for the last few days. I have had a mild infection in my stomach and have been resting when I can, but am feeling better now.
Todays Cupcake Craft Challenge has a new owner. Donna came to the rescue and has taken over the challenge after Lauren had to step down. Just want to say thanks to Lauren for all her hard work and good luck Donna, the team are right behind you!

This weeks theme is Blossoms and Butterflies. I have used a backing paper from Bearly Mine Designs. I've used stickles and a white pen to highlight. The fairy is Dovercraft and the butterflies are MS Punch.
Please do take a look at my fellow DT's have come up with and I do hope you can take part in this weeks challenge.

Yesterday we had Zoes' birthday party at an indoor play centre. She will be 7 this wednesday. I have got the most hectic week ahead of me so I wont be about much to blog hop or chat. Apart from getting the pressies sorted, Zoe also has her leavers concert on the same day as she is off to the juniors in September. My eldest is going away with the school at the end of the week, she has kindly given me a long list of what I need to buy, a pile of washing and a list of things to pack and Friday Daniel has his leavers concert as he will be starting Senior school in September. After our very lengthy and expensive battle with the LEA, Daniel will be boarding at a special needs school for mainly Aspbergers (Autistic) children in Margate from september. Its very sad that he will not be at home during the week but its a 2 hr journey each way and we felt this would be the best option for him.
Anyway, enough ranting. So much to do, I dont really know where to start. If I can find a spare slot this week, I will try and get to visit some blogs.
Hope all are well

Very pretty card Claire, that fairy fits right in with that background, doesn't she! You certainly have got one hectic week ahead of yourself........do try and take some time and relax a bit, you also need the "me time" when you can. The flowers and butterflies are a lovely touch on the card as well.
