Cake! Cake! Cake!

Howdy Friends! I can't believe how crazy it's been lately, so I wanted to pop in and post a little birthday card I made recently for the daughter of one of my closest friends. She is an amazing young lady and I was so excited to celebrate her special day with her. I picked up the new Cuppie set called Sweet Friends by Taylored Expressions. I LOVE that adorable birthday cake image. I paired it up with some of my favorite patterned papers from MME and Bo Bunny. I added some glitz to the frosting using Stardust Stickles and a little sweet pearl for the center of the flower.

P.S. Just a little side note... I was so excited to see the brand new Copic colors available @ today. I was able to get all 12 and they have already shipped. Yippee!!! The first shipment is going fast, so stop on by and check out the new colors. They are really pretty!

I am going to be attending Scrapbook Expo this weekend here in Orange County, so I'll be sure to fill you in on any new goodies I pick up.

Have a fabulous day and Thanks for visiting!!!

You have until Thursday, February 16th @ 6:00 PM EST to post all your comments to everyone. The more you comment, the more chances you have to win!!!

Today I am sharing a CAS Valentine. I LOVE CAS cards and this wonderful Happy Day Square image from Stampendous was just perfect. I simply colored the hearts with lots of fun & bright colors. I added some Stardust Stickles for lots of sparkle. I embossed a portion of the card with dots and added some red polka dot ribbon to finish it off.

A big bunch of PB love

Hi Friends! I have fallen in love with these adorable Mimi stamps by Penny Black. I have almost collected all of them. I luv'em so much! Well, what did I happen to see at CHA? You guessed it... more gotta have Mimi stamps. Look here to see them! Too cute! I am already saving my pennies. So I thought I would share with you today a cute little girl image called Basket of Love. I also used the Penny Black Feb2011 Sketch to create this card.

I am thinking this girl has to be Mimi's BFF, so I got to send this one out to my BFF! My BFF, Pilar, has already sent me my Valentine's Day card last week. Really??? She is that good. Now she's not a stamper, but she loves cards. She sends me so many cards all through the year, just to let me know she's thinking of me. She's a keeper! So I try to make up my lack of card giving (I know) to her with a special card. Well here it is... Don't you just love that sweet face? I hope P loves it too!

Thanks for visiting and have a great day!

Hi All! I'm back from CHA! Well, it was really only 40 minutes away from me. You know you met someone from California if they tell you how long it takes to get there instead of how many miles. LOL! I had a blast and no one called out "Security!" when I met them so it was all good. LOL! I have so many pics, so I am trying to narrow them down to my favs. So I will need to break down the pics in multiple posts. Do enjoy and let me know which were your favs too....

First up.... Imaginisce (Berrylicious and Animal Crackers)
