TECC30 - Birthday Cake

Good Morning! Hope everyone had a good weekend. There's nothing like one of Taylor's weekly cupcake challenges to get me back into the swing of stamping. I had every intention of stamping last weekend, but the weekend just got away from me, which I'm sure a lot of you can relate to. I made this card for this week's challenge over on Taylor's blog, which you can view here. I decided to make a regular A2 card, because I don't have any square envelopes...LOL! I've had this Heidi Grace patterned paper for a while now and finally decided to cut it up. The cake stamp from Gina K's set, How Sweet it is! goes perfectly with this paper. The cardstock colors are Tempting Turquoise and Pixie Pink. I colored in the image with Prismacolor Pencils and blended with Gamsol and a stump. I sponged around the image with Pixie Pink ink, added some Liquid Applique for frosting, and some Stardust Stickles for some bling. The turquoise grosgrain ribbon is from Taylored Expressions. I hope everyone has a great Monday (if there is such a thing...LOL).

I'm Here

Hello!!! For those of you that actually stop by to visit my blog; I'm still here...LOL!!! Unfortunately, stamping has had to take a back seat to everything else going on this summer. I've missed it dearly and I'm ready to get back to stamping on a regular basis. Last night I cleaned and reorganized my stamping area (for like 2 hours), so I'm good to go. I hope to start posting again early next week. In the meantime, I thought I would leave you with an adorable picture I took of my girls on the 4th of July (sorry, I couldn't resist). Till next week!
