When the world hands you scraps ... I just made this cupcake card from the scraps of my sketch card with the kitty. The ribbon is the same color as the cupcake paper, I have no clue why the scanner washed it out so much. But I tried taking a picture outside in the daylight and wasn't thrilled with that either !
I am still playing with the background paper I made a month ago - which kind of ties me into a color scheme for the month as well. I should make a whole new batch of it for fall.
At any rate ....here is my card for today's sketch at splitcoast plus a new cupcake card for my cupcake pile.
and I found this cat hiding in the flowerpots. Seemed only natural to have the card hiding in the cats ...ha ha ha
Then I took Snickers to the vet for her baby kitten to one year weight check. The vet didn't charge me! So this was a perfect thank you card ... I wrote"Thanks for checking on my cat ... "on the inside.
SERENDIPITY !!! I keep making these silly teapot cards and then finding a perfect use for them!
Cat note: revised this cupcake today - just didn't like it the way it was ...
But I kept the shiny cherry on top.
Ever get the feeling you don't know when to stop? I remember when I was doing cake decorating, I never knew when enough was enough. And then when I was a quilter I never knew when I had just the right amount of quilting. Well, the same doubts haunt me with my cards. I made this card for Amanda's 30th and was thrilled with it but now I am thinking, gee, if I would make one more layer for the frosting part and raise it up a little, then stick the cherry in it, that would look even better. Debating with myself ...
I do love my new camera though. It is idiot proof which means I can use it. It's an Olympus 5010 12 mega pixel, but better than that, it's a turn it on and push the button kind of affair. Works great for my totally un-technical mind.
Now ... should I make another layer .... or not? Hmmmmmmmmmm
Here is a direct quote from Donna C but I love the sentiment and can't say it any better than she did ...
