Cupcake Birthday Card

Do you ever want to pull your hair out sometimes?  I do but since mine is thinning it’s not a wise idea. Lol! It’s such a busy time at work and I feel like blogging has taken the back seat. I want to be creating things and sharing them with you but most days I’m just too exhausted. I can’t wait for cold weather to get here so that things will slow down at work.

I did get a chance to create this cupcake birthday card for a special girl.

I was so happy to be able to use an Avery Elle stamp set that’s been sitting in a drawer since I bought it. I colored the top of the cupcake and the candle with Spectrum Noir markers. The cupcake liner was cut from a piece of scrapbook paper using the coordinating dies that go with the stamp set.

Supplies:

Avery Elle Cupcakes Stamp Set

Avery Elle Elle-Ments Die – Cupcakes

Neenah Desert Storm Cardstock

Lawn Fawn Petite Paper Pack – Let’s Polka

Pretty Pink Posh 6mm Sparkling Clear Sequins

VersaFine Onyx Black Ink Pad

Thanks for stopping by today. Before I go I’d like to take a moment to talk about the anniversary of 9/11. I’m sure we all remember where we were the moment the towers were hit that day. All I have to do is see pictures of that day and all the memories come flooding back. Let’s never forget those that lost their lives, those that worked so hard in the recovery efforts and those that have risked their lives and lost their lives for our freedom. It’s been 13 years and we’re still not safe. We are always worried about terrorists but let’s not overlook the fact that Americans are harming each other every day. I hope that the youth of America are being raised to love one another. There’s been far too much violence. We need peace and love and it starts with each of us and how we live our lives and treat others.
