Happy Cupcake Day

Hi everyone! Man are we ever in the middle of a heat wave - it was triple digits Saturday and Sunday! If extreme heat isn't a good reason to stay inside and make cards then I don't know what is! My mojo was in full swing yesterday and I got a lot of cards made to share with you this week!

 Before I show you my card however, let me show you a card Tara my boss's six year old daughter made for me.

She used the Hearts As Big As A Whale image by Louise Gardner. She colored this at work on Friday while I was busy working. She asked me when my birthday was and I told her it was in July so she made me an early birthday card! Here's the inside.

Isn't that sweet?

 Now my card was made for the Featured Stamper challenge they had yesterday at Splitcoast Stampers. I chose to CASE THIS CARD. I really liked the big cupcake and the simple layout. Since the big cupcake was one of the things I liked about the card, I thought the Sassy Sally's Big Cupcake image by Cheryl Alger was the perfect image to use!

I colored this with Copic markers and chalked around the background. The sentiment is from the Birthday Set by Michelle Bertuzzi.  I just now noticed that I didn't color her shoes!  I will have to correct that before sending this off to someone!

Today is a brand new challenge on the Squigglefly Blog, so save some time to go see what the Rascals have been up to!  Try to stay cool today and thanks for looking!

Hi Holly -

I love the card that sweet Tara made for you, what a little darling she is! And your card is just adorable, love it! And I would not have noticed the uncolored shoe if you had not pointed it out.
