Today I have a three cupcakes for you. It was fun coloring the different cupcake papers with Copics. The digi is a freebie from here and the candles are Mark Richards that I picked up from the Michaels dollar bin. The sentiment is from SU!

Like my last post, I enjoyed working with the different colors of paper from my stash.  I also did a green one and a yellow one that would be appropriate for a masculine birthday. I had to make sure to do at least a couple of those because I prefer the purple and pink!

Have a wonderful week, everyone!

Miss Ewe!

I had so much fun coloring these yesterday! And it was fun to match the patterned paper to the colors I used, since I wasn't home when I colored them. The digi is by Paula and can be found on the Operation Write Home website. These are only six of the 12 I made. They all have googlie eyes and the heart is covered in Glossy Accents. I used Pearl Pens to make the little dots at the bottom.

Goodness, it was so nice to use such a variety of patterned paper, I can't even begin to describe it. I will definitely be on the lookout for another versatile image like this. I hadn't originally planned to decorate them, but I started out with just a light gray and dark grey. Then, I decided they needed more flair lol. I hope you enjoy them as much as I do. Simply looking at them makes me smile.

Enjoy your week!

I finally did it. I broke down and tried one of the pinwheel cards. No idea why I kept putting them off lol. They are very easy to do! I can't say I'm addicted like some people, but I'll definitely be making more. These two cards went to my hubby up in Alaska. You can't tell in the picture, but the second one has subtle patterns on the pinwheel papers. These cards are a great way to use up some of those scraps. Or it's a good way to get rid of some of the ugly paper we all tend to end up with!

Enjoy your day!

It's been too long...

It's been too long since I've posted anything, but that will be changing! I am being laid off from my job at the end of July and I've decided to take the month of August off for relaxing and enjoying some summer! That is if summer ever reaches my corner of the world lol. We're lucky if we hit 70. It's been a cool summer, but I'd rather have cool than a heat advisory every day.

As I'm sure you all know, I love to make cards for Operation Write Home. But lately, I've been making cards for my hubby's shipmates! He is working on a fish processing boat up in Alaska and his fellow cabin mates love the handmade cards I send him. So, I've been making some extra cards for him to share with them. I love hearing him tell me how impressed everyone is with my cards lol. I told him he should be selling them if they're that popular!

I'll write more soon! I hope everyone is enjoying their summer.

Thanks for stopping by,
