Hey, Cupcake!

While blufing (blog surfing) yesterday I stopped at one of my normal stops and saw that she had used a sketch from Stampin' Kub's blog. I thought it was worth a look see so I went to Kurtis's blog and website. Love it by the way...check it out. Anyway, he used a really simple sketch that I way...I can't do nice card with such a simple sketch. Or, at least I hadn't in the past. Well, taadaa! All the stamps on this card are from the Kim Hughes set called Hugs and Kisses and can be found at CHF. My supplies are listed HERE. My favorite part of this card is the cake part of the cupcake as I used brown flocking on it and it is SO cute in real life! There is a strange phenomenon in our house. If I make a card that I don't like and then show it to Todd and he really likes it...typically it is very well liked on SCS. When I love a card but Todd doesn't like it all that much and place it on SCS then it isn't very well liked. Frustrating! Anyway, I love this card, Todd isn't in love with it, it doesn't have many comments on SCS BUT both Kurtis and Keri Lee like it...what do you think? Am I right on this one or is Todd? It is okay to be honest just not mean, k?

***Enabler Alert...Enabler Alert!***

Oh, and I must tell you about this place I found for good buys on crafting stuff. It is called Scrapbook Pal. I placed an order through them on Wednesday and received it TODAY!! Free Priority shipping with orders over $25, too! All of their Stickles glitter glue are on sale for $1.75 each. I got Platinum, Baby Blue, Cotton Candy, and Yellow! I also got a couple of more Color Box Chalk Cat Eyes. And, my very first Ranger Distressing Inks. I have NO idea how to use them but I'm excited to try them. I picked out antique linen and tattered rose colors. If you know how to use them please leave me a comments so I can have some fun with them, too! Oh, and one more thing about Scrapbook Pal. I used their online customer service for a question and it was GREAT! I quickly got an operator and she answered my question and suggested an alternative for me. Overall...I say...type quickly to get to this store and buy LOTS!!! LOL!

Have a fantastic Friday everyone...Todd and I are going on a date tonight so I'm excited!!!
