Cupcake surprise




Here's something new and different - a cupcake card! I made this about a month back but am finally getting around to posting it now. I used Kraft cardstock as my cardstock base. I stamped the heart from Big Bold birthday in close to cocoa ink as a background. I used the tiny cupcake from the short and sweet stamp set to make another background How cute is that?! Then there is a piece of the Tempting Turquoise designer paper as another layer piece. I stamped the faux stitching ala Beate from the All in a Row stampe set. The cupcake is done in close to cocoa and tempting turquoise with a colored glitter heart popped up on the icing.

I hope you all had a fabulous Valentine's day! We got a heart shaped pizza from Papa Murphy's like we did the year before. This time I picked it up the day before Valentine's day. It was nuts picking up last year on Feb.14! I like to give each member of my family a little gift. My two boys got new webkins, my daughter got a stuffed bear that holds a box. Inside of the box was a necklace. I got a Panama Jack t-shirt and a button down shirt for my husband. He came home with red roses and chocolate for me. It was a good night!

Sounds like a wonderful Valentine's Day! I love your cupcake card! My girls (especially my youngest) are so INTO their Webkinz! I was going to get them each one more (they each have just one), but I didn't want to distract them for the one they're currently taking care of!
