Get your paws off that cupcake!!!

Happy Wednesday! Wednesdays have to be one of my favorite days since we now start the downward slide toward the weekend! And, I consider myself very lucky since so many people are digging themselves out of a blizzard today and we have been spared so far here in Northwestern Ontario. I should be careful what I say as I haven't bothered to check the forecast....

This is the card I made for one of my scrappy girlfriends. I don't get to see her often, but we always have a good laugh and fun times when we do manage to get together!

I used the great sketch over at Friday Sketchers for this one - I didn't manage to follow it exactly, but I think perhaps it's close enough. :) This image was so fun to color! Oh, and you can barely tell in the photo, but I tried something new - well new to me okay? - I left my image in the nestie after embossing and chalked around the edges with some pink chalk. I love the effect, why on earth haven't I done this before???

And here is the inside - I actually remembered to photograph it this time! I always finish the inside of my card, but often I'm too anxious to share it and photograph the front before the inside is finished. There were some great rub-ons with this fun line of papers and I was able to make use of a few on the inside of the card. Sorry, it seems crooked - it isn't IRL, it is just the way I shot the photo.
Have a great evening!

What I used:

papers: Imaginisce - All kinds of Happy line

stamps: Whipper Snapper, SU sentiment


  1. Great card! I love how you did the "Happy Birthday" sentiment. Lunch was great today!

  2. Adorable little rodent card. :)

    You're lucky with the storm...we got pounded with ice. Ice, ice, baby. ICK.

  3. Sweet card! I love that you did the inside, too!

  4. Great card, love the chalking! i wish I could use chalk as i love the effect but I hate the feel of it on my hands, makes me feel sick!
    Love the papers and the image and it's really special how you've decorated the inside too.
    Have a good day and lets hope you don't need you shovel......!
