it was *COLD* last night!!!

so cold, in fact, that i had to get up in the middle of the night and wrap up in my big ol' terrycloth bathrobe! o'course, i could've just closed the windows...but that would've spoiled it; for whilst coldness is plentiful in new the middle of august, it's a bit of a luxury, dontcha think?!?!!

and how does that tie in with the card i'm about to show you? it doesn't. not even a little bit. i was just bein' polite and making conversation! :) ok, that's enough of that...wanna see the card?!

(patterned paper: junkitz, ctmh, dcwv, sei, origami paper; chipoard letters: target $ spot (!); sequins & brads: queen & co, doodlebug; ribbon: michaels; other: colorbox inks, foam tape)

i needed to be a bit fast, so i used kazan's latest pattern, over at 2sketches4you. i used almost all scraps... (so miss june will be proud of me!) ...even the piece of white card stock had been pre-folded and trimmed for another project and then at the last minute i went with a different color, which doesn't make it a scrap, but it was a leftover...which is almost as good! now i just have to remember to MAIL this thing on monday and i have a shot at bein' on time for the birthday in question. go, me!


  1. Wow! Great card! that cake looks good enough to eat lol

  2. I AM so proud of you! I was actually amazed at the wonderful cupcake card creation. This is SO much better than my cheezy St. Pat's card; pretty, pink, and happy, happy, happy! I think I need cupcake dp and those chipboard letters, which I have never seen at the Target $1 did I miss those?! I actually have everything else to CASE your fab card. How DO you do it???

  3. I am lovin' all of those cupcakes ... so very fun!

  4. There's nothing better about birthdays than CAKE and so this is the perfect birthday card...happy, bright, pink and filled with cake...mmmmm CAKE!

  5. what a sweet card!! that cupcake paper is adorable, love it!!! and the polka dotted lettering could NOT be any cuter...the whole card just screams HAPPY!!!
