CC Designs Birthday Cupcake

Happy Friday!! I hope everyone is looking forward to a great weekend.  We will be busy with a birthday party, cub scouts events,church and who knows what else.  Rest would be good but we will see what happens.

 Today All That Scraps has this cute little CC Designs Birthday Cupcake by Christine Wooden available as a digi.  I challenged myself to keep this card simple to give to my daughter's little classmate.  I tend to go overboard and need to learn that sometimes quick and simple is good for the occasion if you know what I mean:) In my mind I wated this guy to be white with just the slightest highlights but wasn't happy with it so after I sent my photos to ATS I changed the little cuppie to blue, however this was also after my Addison Elmer glued a picture for her friend on the inside (that explains the warped paper)LOL. 
That is it for now, it is late and I am about to turn into a pumpkin.  I will be back Saturday with the latest sketch challenge at The Sweet Stop. Have a wonderful day!!

A Valentine From Cocoa & Sweet Stop Sketch

Happy Saturday!! It is time for another wonderful sketch challenge at The Sweet Stop but this week there is a little twist which is to use dry embossing.  I used this cute digital stamp from Sweet 'n Sassy called Cocoa's Chocolates.  I love this little guy he is so cute and there so many more, you really should take a look.

I apologize my coloring is not my best on this card but hopefully the cute image makes up for it.  This was one of 22 cards I made this week (4 DT and 19 for my daughter's class) so I think I ran out of steam.   I did make my first attempt at paper roses, which I think turned out pretty good HERE is a tutorial if  you are interested.  I am definitely going to try making some different types, they are so much fun.

Stamps- Sweet 'n Sassy Stamps Cocoa's Chocolates, Sentiment C.C. Designs
Paper -The Paper Studio, Hearts- Slice ,Copics (sorry I didn't write them down), Prisma Pencils for the background, Sizzix Heart Embossing folder

Have a wonderful weekend!!
