It's a cupcake kind of day...

What a great day here in Austin...the weather is great - high 60's, a little windy but anything is much better than rain. I really couldn't wear flip flops today but I will tomorrow!!! YEAH!

Today is a perfect day to make homeade cupcakes. I didn't have time to bake but I did the next best thing - I made a card! It turned out really yummy!

I love the Cutting Cafe's cupcake shaped card set...
I also used Stampin' Up's Certainly Celery, Regal Rose and Chocolate Chip cardstocks, the patterned paper is Everyday from American Crafts. I also used really cute pink grosgrain ribbon, a clear square button, glitter, and my xyron machine. Enjoy this cupcake...without the calories!!!

I'm extremely excited to introduce...

...The Cutting Cafe'. I'm now apart of the oh, so talented design team. YIIIPPPPPEEEEEEE!!! When I first received the confirmation email, my first thought was...WOW! My second thought was...COOL! Third was...AWESOME, then I screammed. (smile)

another great birthday card...

Another great card...HAPPY BIRTHDAY...Wow, I'm going through my cards and man I use some of the same colors all the time!!! I need to go a little outside my comfort zone and start using other colors - I ordered new scrapbook papers today, I should get it in a couple of days. So my goal is to start showing you more colors...

Speaking of colors - my most favorite colors in the world are:
1. Green - most shades of green
2. Brown - I love to create with brown
3. Pink...it's trendy, I guess brown is too...
4. Black, I wear black almost every single day...yep it's sad, but it's easy!
5. Red, who doesn't love a huge red handbag...this was my favorite color though out my elementary days...and if you put something in front of me to purchase, I will go to red always...
I guess I just love color....what is your favorite color???

Happy Birthday
