Peace, love, and cupcakes


Before I send the Sophie card to Jennifer, I thought I'd make a few more cards and mail them all out on Monday. I had these Taylored Expressions cuppies already colored and the card drive is a good incentive to turn them into cards.


I bought these stamps last year and they were my first introduction to cling stamps. When my friend Alice was chosen to be a part of Taylor's Sketch Crew, I found them and remembered how cute they were. I just realized that the tan cuppie looks more like a muffin.
Stamps: Taylored Expressions, Hero Arts
Cardstock: Gina K, Stamin Up
Patterned papers: Basic Grey, Papertrey Ink
Ink: Memento, Versafine, Papertrey Ink
Other: Nestabilities dies, Copic markers, ribbon, pop dots,
Hero Arts gemstones, Glossy Accents, ultrafine glitter

And look at this adorable mini card that Jenyfur from Caardvarks sent me along with a RAK that I won last month. I was more excited about her card than the Clean and Simple stamps which were the actual prize. It's a cute 3x4" digital hybrid card, and I noticed Hero Arts' digi penguin and snowflake images. So much texture and embellies on a tiny masterpiece. The stamps are pretty cool, but receiving a handmade card is priceless! Thank you, Jenyfur!
