Wanna Cupcake?

Our youngest daughter attended several birthday parties this last weekend; one of the girls is a very, very dear friend so I wanted to make an extra special card for you.  I used the same layout as I did for THIS card - love the layout!




You know, my great plans of keeping it super simple just didn't come true!  I added some fun/funky stitching, lots of sponging and LOTS of layers.  LOL

This is a flip card meaning it doesn't open, you just flip it over and write your message.  The image is Verve Visual's Cupcake Affair.  I added www.vervevisual.comAdirondack Dimensional Pearls in Espresso - LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the way it looks like real icing!

I also added Glossy Accents to each flower.  I also snapped a picture showing the Copics used to color the image.  Loved the way this turned out; hope the birthday girl did too.

Meanwhile this week our son had his Christmas Program, "Who Stole the Meaning of Christmas"; all kids were dressed in black & white and Jared was "Santa".  Here's a few pictures I snapped of him before the program; too much activity to get a good picture during the program, but he did a GREAT job!

Thanks for popping in; hope you have a G-R-E-A-T day!   Hugs, ~M.
