Happy Birthday Sweet Thing!

Hi Friends! How was your weekend? I had a fabulous Sunday with my hubby at Disneyland. It was a beautiful day, but so HOT! I think that's why the park wasn't too crowded. We stayed as long as we could take the heat and came home to relax. After my nice little nap I got to spend some time stamping a birthday card using the Sweet Thing stamp by Penny Black. I have had this stamp for awhile and was so happy I finally got to use it. Last weekend I got together with a group of friends for some stamping and dinner. Jami had the great idea for us to choose a stamp from the one of the ones we brought and all of us make a card using the same image. We all agreed this sweet image was the one. I stamped the image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink and colored it with Copic Markers. I paper pieced the cupcake wrapper with Kraft cardstock and the icing with Bo Bunny double dot paper. I used a white gel pen to add dots to her dress and added lots of Stardust Stickles for sparkle. Be sure to stop by and visit Jami, Lisa, and Jen and show them some love for their wonderful creations.

Thanks for visiting and Have a Sweet Monday!
