Hey Cupcake!


Happy Weekend! With cupcakes being all the rage lately, I thought it would be fun to make some cupcake themed Christmas cards. I'm not really all that happy with how this turned out but sometimes it just turns out that way... The paper is from a one of those big paper stacks from Michael's. Of course I had to highlight the frosting with Stickles! ;-) I don't have many plans for the weekend. Money is tight right now with my husband's job being very slow so I think I'll stay home and out of trouble if ya know what I mean. lol! Every time I leave the house I seem to spend money! I hope to finish making my Christmas cards. That would be a great feeling to have that accomplished... Thanks for dropping by! (hugs)

OH...and the scalloped border too!!! I think you may need to rest your eyes a bit and have a look at it later;O) Then...maybe you will see the beauty the rest of us sees!!! Enjoy your weekend!!!
