Beautiful Blues!!

Good afternoon! Just thought I'd share 2 cards I made today before I have to pick my daughter up!
I used Close To My Heart Pemberley papers and My Acrylics Celebration stamps and Spring stamp set! I absolutely love CTMH products...I'm not just saying that either! Lol, I really love how their papers, ink and embellishments coordinate!
I made 2 different cards using the same
Flower stamp and I love how fast and easy they came together!

High Heel CUPCAKES!!!!

This has to be the cutest idea for a cupcake I have ever seen!!  Really!!!
My triplet nieces and nephew were celebrating their 12th birthday a couple weeks ago and I offered to make the cupcakes.  My mother bought me a cupcake book that had this idea in it (the reason she bought the book) and I just had to make them!!!  The book is called "Cupcakes, Cookies and Pie, Oh My!!" it is filled with awesome ideas that I can't wait to try!
So here they are..................................

I made each pair a little different and just used boxed cupcake mix, can frosting, sugar sprinkles, flower sprinkles,graham crackers, a stick cookie and a piece of gum....they were so simple and came out so great!  My nieces and my daughter were thrilled!!
Enjoy the day!!

Simple and Pretty!!

Just the way we like it right??
I am a new Close To My Heart Consultant!! Honestly when I saw the kit and that you get a free circuit Art Philosophy cartridge kit...I was sold! I am so glad I signed on, I love the paper, stamps and most of all the cartridge!!
So while I was playing with the stamps, I made this pretty background paper (using the Card Word Puzzle stamp set) that I used to cut out the pillow box using the Art Philosophy cartridge! I also cut the roses and used the Lagoon CTMH stamp pad to color them! I added some brown ribbon and done ...a beautiful and simple gift idea! I also made a little note card to go with it!
To color the flowers, I cut them using the cricut and while they were still on the mat I used a sponge and Lagoon stamp pad and inked them. Then I peeled the flower shape and inked the back. I rolled the flower and glued it,. Simple and a very pretty embellishment !!
That's all for today! Enjoy!
