CUPCAKES ANYONE?

AHA!! I knew that would get your attention - LOL! I have been making a lot of birthday cards lately because it seems there are tons of them during the summer months!! So, I got out my really fun set from Our Craft Lounge called Life is Sweet and made this cupcake card since the gal I am giving this to is a nut for cupcakes!! I actually stamped them all out, then used some liquid applique on them to make the frosting, colored them, then popped them up on dimensionals!! The little stamp in the middle with the sentiment is whipped cream and a cherry - isn't it cute?? I had a lot of fun making this card, and I hope she likes it because she is a special person!! I will leave you with the recipe as I am off today to go shoe shopping for all my new outfits....can you believe I start work on Monday??!!! Ack!! I am not ready!!!! I am getting more nervous by the day, but I know once I start, it will be fine!!! Have a great day everyone and thanks so much for stopping by, I appreciate YOU!!!
