Hello Cupcake

Ok, so after a super long night, I was hoping that my sick little guy would sleep in..... NO SUCH LUCK! ha ha ha So this card got done in stages. I picked the paper, checked on the kid, found the ribbon and digi, checked on kiddo, cut out digi, checked on kid, colored, checked on kid, glued stuff in place, kid, picture, kid, ..... now I'm finally posting it like 3 hours later! hahahaha So here's the Sketch:

And here's my card:

I think it turned out rather well, all things considered. All of you know that when you get up in the middle of making a card, it's sorta like de-railing a train.... woot woot.....crash!!!!!! You sit back down and...ummm... what was I thinking here? hummm..... ha ha ha That's totally how it was each time I had to go get something for Evan, or hold him until he fell back asleep or something. So, like I said.... all things considered... ha ha ha I think this little girl holding the cake is soooo stinkin' cute, you'll be seeing a lot of her in my cards in the year to come! ha ha ha As my crazy morning wore on, I picked up anything I could to get this card done, so she's colored with a combo of chalks, markers, colored pencils, and crayons!!! (Crayola is huge in our house! ha ha ha and they all just happened to be scattered on the floor in my office, so I used them! ha ha ha) Well someone is begging for Fishie crackers, so my waitressing continues.... thank goodness I can type fast, or this post would be a long time in coming too! ha ha ha Happy Sunday to you all!


  1. very cute - hope your poor little guy gets better real soon!

  2. ooh this really nice and simple. I like it :)! esp the way the buttons highlights and coordinates with everything else in the card.

  3. I'm sorry he didn't sleep this night either. Poor you, must be wiped out! And poor him. I hope he gets better today! Your card is lovely, she is pretty, and I'm looking forward seeing more of her! LOL! LOVE those layered buttons!

  4. I hope your boy is feeling better...this is such a super sweet card...

  5. yummy!! hope the little guy is feeling better soon

Growing in Unity Day 1

Hello there Unity Crafters!!!!! Today marks my very first day in the Growing in Unity event.  Today I'm featuring a card that I made using the set {Jar Full of} Sweetness.  Those of you who know me, know that I'm completely addicted to apothecary jars and have lots of them filled with all sorts of candies on my countertop.  I adore them and i'll never stop collecting them.  So, when I saw this set, I knew I HAD TO HAVE it straight away!
I'm very new to making shaker cards but I thought it would be perfect to have the little sequins I purchased from Firefly Crafts inside the jars to make it look like little candies in there!

I also used a few of the flowers I purchased from Firefly Crafts as well, they are made by Wild Orchid and they are absolutely perfect!

I hope you enjoyed this card today and it inspired you to make something crafty! Surf the Unity site and find a cute stamp and get with it! he he he! See you all tomorrow!
Have a Crafty Day!
