Hey Cupcake

Before I share my card for the day, I want to give you a little insight about me. I'm a bad blogger. I get busy and it never fails that I don't get something posted. Then I realized that I can schedule my posts! Yippeee that will help! So usually Sunday evening I sit down and prepare my posts for the week. In the past, I haven't had enough for each day. BUT this week it's different!! Not only did I have enough for the week but I even created and completed a few new cards TONIGHT!!! AND what's even better is that I met some challenges and their deadlines!! Now, I'm not bragging cause I'm sure it won't last long but it feels good to create and LOVE what I make. That doesn't always happen. The mojo goddess must be on my side!!

Ok enough about that, on to the card, right??? Well this yummy beauty comes from another Amy Rysavy sketch. I really enjoy her sketches and I love that I'm using embellishments again. Adding that extra something can be difficult for me. So here's the card:

YUM-O right?! Want the details? Here they are: Great Impression Stamp, DCWV Sweet Stack, Brown Cardstock, Ribbon and Buttons. I stamped the image with Turquoise Gem VersaMagic and then embossed it with clear embossing powder. I did this cause VersaMagic takes awhile to dry and I'm inpatient, lol! Next I paper pieced the cherries & cupcake "holder" (for some reason I'm totally blanking out what to call this...maybe cause it's 1:30AM?!?!?) with DCWV paper. I colored the hearts with a light pink and then added crystal Stickles to them to give them shine!

Thanks so much for looking! Feel free to leave me a comment as I ALWAYS appreciate and LOVE to hear what YOU have to say!! While you are there tell me if my pictures are horrible...I always think they look pretty good then I upload them and think they look dark. Am I imagining that? Are they horrible? I really hope not!!

That is too, too cute!! I love the image and the buttons are a nice touch, especially since you used something in the middle, usually I'm too lazy too LOL!
