A cupcake challenge

Remember those Stampendous stamps I said Michaels had? Well I have finally used it and I love it, its so FUN! I dont know if I mentioned before I have a huge SWEET TOOTH, cupcakes, cake, cookies, candy,and ice cream are always in my house! Did I mention that every one in the house has a sweet tooth. I Often stash my favorite candies in my craft studio and my son always stops in to see what I have, because he knows mom is hiding something. Anywhoo this stamp was so fitting, I can see this dessert tier in my house.

Made a cake tonight, french vanilla with vanilla frosting. It wont last past Tuesday night:)

I created a card for Taylors cupcake challenge #73 using this really sweet stamp. Love that plaid paper by Magnolia, had that for over a year, very pleased with the card. I colored with my prisma pencils and blended with my stumps and baby oil
(love that technique) I used liquid glass on the strawberries, cherries and the strawberry cake. Did you notice the glitter on the plates, thats suppose to be crystal plates.

BOOHOO, the weekend is over. I should have taken the summer off:( I made it to Marshalls but my lamps were gone:( My trip went like this, I went to the register to make my purchase because I did still shop. The cashier ask me if I found everything okay and I tell her about the lamps and she says OH I just sold those earlier today (insert SCREAM)I knew I should have stopped there Friday after work, learn a lesson from me if you see something at a GREAT price buy it. But I left the store with several new Yankee candles, Fresh Lime, Coconut, Cranberry, and Peach & sweet Berries. My house smells so good:)

This card was stamped lifted from Marisa Gunn, it was perfect for the little bugs. The colors were a inspired from my favorite place for inspiration POTTERY BARN.

OOHH Friday, sweet Friday

I was so happy to wake up this morning and know that it was Friday, what a week. I have been way to tired to even upload and post, how sad right? Tonight is family dinner and movie night. The dinner spot Numero Uno, do you have one? The best pizza, salad and garlic pizza balls OH MY. The movie Valkyre with Tom Cruise. Very tired right now hope I make it through the movie. Whatcha got going this weekend? Tomorrow I will do a little shopping, spotted some lamps at Marshalls and picture them painted and the shades revamped. Also plan on putting some ink to some new stamps. I have several Michaels coupons I want to use too. And last and most exciting I plan on attending the scrapbook convention this Sunday :) Its here in Pasadena, Calif. Thats right in my back yard. Thats the highlight of my weekend!

Love these colors together, along with my favorite ribbon! I stamped this entire card on white daisy textured paper(another love). Tried to keep it simple, no layers. I cut out the flowers and used jumbo rhinestones as the flower centers, a little extra bling near the vines and VOILA!!!

A little summer sweetness

Well it doesnt feel quite like summer here in So Calif. We had a thunder storm on wednesday and lots of coolness since then. Im not complaining because before long we will be baking in the 100s. I created these 2 cards days ago but no time to post. I have several more but havent taken pictures yet. So stay tuned.

This is another one of my CTMH favs its called Watermelon Picnic.

I attempted to stamp lift a card design from a CTMH cattie but couldnt get my stitching right so I had to tweek it.

I went in Michaels to buy one punch and they were on sale and I walked out with four. Hey they were $7.50 each, who could pass up that deal?
