Dalmation Treats

I never meant to be absent again for so long. That Open House must have done me in. I woke up the next morning, went to some appointments with a headache, came home...went to bed.....was able to function again, sort of, on Sunday. Five day headaches SUCK!!!! Doesn't help that Edmonton is in a major cloud/rain trend right now.

I created this card before I was down, and it was for a couple of challenges last week - which I neglected to write down. I believe one was the Mojo Monday.

The choice of spots came from an inspiration challenge based on cakes. Since I love black/white/red, I picked just such a cake. I could only pull off a thumbnail photo of it.

So I will leave you with these dalmation treats for the day. I've lots of chores to do in preparation for a major surprise for my husband and a major trip we're going on. I hope to be back soon because I got some new SU stuff yesterday.

Final question - would you pick a cupcake with white icing or black icing?? Have a good one! Joan

Love the card - it's great!!!

On the cupcakes, I'm gonna have to go with WHITE icing. I'm not sure I want to know what chemicals (or other nasties) are in the black icing!

Bet ya thought I'd go with the black, huh?!

Very cute card, I like the colour scheme.
As for cupcakes, I always pick the pink icing ones, but if I had to pick between black and white definitely white (I'd be worried the food colouring to make the icing black would stain my mouth/lips LOL!)
