fancy a cupcake?

O.K, I know it's not a card but I did make it and it is 'crafty'! As promised, here is my first crochet attempt (besides flowers) at making a . . .
. . . cupcake! (Brought a mag over the weekend and this pattern just called out to me)

what do you think (besides it being a mutant cupcake - it turned out larger than expected LOL)?! The yarn isn't the best (just what I had) and I know my tension is non existent but at least I managed to follow the pattern (sort of!) and finish it! Now it's no where near as good as what my big sis can do but it's a start and I think I may be hooked (pardon the pun!) Just need to get some nicer cottons and practice. Think a couple of them in different colours/flavours will look cute together :D
That's all for now, will have my ATC up later.
