The Illustration Friday theme this week is Rescue, so I instantly thought of superheroes. This hero is a bit smug but that doesn't deter the ladies!

Yep, more cakes! It was our first time with doing a numbered cake, it went really well and Jay (my husband) did a very good job with icing that tricky number 2!! (;o) Hee hee!) We had another Mickey Mouse cake to do (and we've got another one to do in a couple of months time) and a strange request for a meerkat cake. Not just any meerkat either, Aleksander the meerkat from those compare the meerkat (market) adverts.
I had to use my painting skills for Aleksander, I'm pleased with how he looks but he does look more like a dog than a meerkat. Our cake version is a bit fatter, otherwise it would have been a rather small cake.
This is the real Aleksander

A couple of weeks ago I won a prize draw that was hosted by Laura Sparling on her Beads by Laura blog. Laura is a glass artist and makes wonderful glass beads. She put together a big prize draw giveaway featuring prizes that were donated by herself and other crafters. There were three prizes to win, all comprising of three different items. I couldn't believe it when I found out I'd won, and look what great prizes I won too.
I got some Art Clay Silver, donated by Joy Funnell. Joy makes lovely jewellery and teaches classes in Art Clay Silver, click here to visit her website and here for her blog.
I got a handmade purse in a cute cupcake pattern, donated by Lyn from Florspace. Lyn makes lots of these purses, bags, wallets and clutches, they are very well made and she uses a great range of cute patterned materials. She also included a free foot keyring! You can check out her great products in her Etsy shop here and her blog here.
And my other prize was one of Laura's cupcake bead dangles. Her cupcake beads have been very popular and sadly is no longer making them. Laura frequently has giveaways so keep an eye out on her blog for a chance to win some of her gorgeous glass beads. If you'd like to know more about Laura and her beads you can visit her website here.
And thank you ladies for my fabulous prizes, I love them all.
