Hey Cupcake!


I did it. I gave in. I am posting another card. Do you ever have that card that you just can't wait to post? Both this one and my Howdy card are cards I couldn't wait to share with you! :D This is another stamp that I ordered from Lizzie Anne. Isn't it cute??? I realized, once I joined Taylor's Cupcake Challenge team, that I did not have any cupcake stamps so I decided I needed this one! For $4.99 too! You can't get much better than that! I am just so excited that I found them! They have the most adorable stamps for a really good price!

For this card I used a Lizzie Anne sketch. Every Monday, one of the girls posts a sketch challenge on the Lizzie Anne forum. This week's sketch was a little tricky. I had to do a lot of thinking before I knew what I wanted my card to look like. I am loving the border on this card. At first I was just going to stamp the sentiment once but I didn't stamp it quite where I wanted so I decided to see what it would look like if I stamped it as a border. I LOVE how it turned out! I also added the paper piercing as a last touch. It's a little crooked, but I think it was a nice addition. Oh, I would also like to mention that I did my first paper piecing EVER on this card. I am not sure if you can tell but the cupcake cups are dp from the My Mind's Eye set that I bought this week. I love the look that paper piecing can give an image! It is easy to do too! Well, that's all I have for this card. I used my SU! Markers to color the cupcakes. Just in case you were wondering.

Have a fantastic night! I am going to go pick out a movie. Not sure what yet. It's not near as fun to watch a movie by yourself. I am so ready for my hubby to be home! :( I miss him like crazy! Thanks for stopping by! I will be back tomorrow after church!
