~~ Happy Birthday Brother ~~

Good morning Y'all....Happy Valentine's day !!!! I made this card for my Brother Jim. His birthday is on St. Patrick's day and I had made him a birthday card with that theme, but I really didn't like it and I'm sure he gets tired of St Patty's Day themed cards anyway,so I trashed it . I used From My Kitchen for the cupcake.Used the shift key to get the yummy frosting top instead of the one with the cherry. I got some help from the pre made Brother tag. Stamped happy Birthday and used Tim Holtz distressing powder to give it some life.Added the tag and attached it to the hemp with a copper safety pin. I ran the bottom of the cupcake thru the crimper, but you really cant tell, embossed the frosting, added the pearlized paint and gave it a light inking with Ranger, tea dye ink. I used a deep edge Martha Stewart punch and stitched around the top layer. My brother loves my cards and I hope he loves this one too! Thanks so much for stopping by!!!!!!



Oh yes, Joy, I'm SURE he will! You managed to make this yummy but masculine at the same time. No mean feat! Fabulous! Happy V-Day! xxD

Welcome to My World

This sight is dedicated to the art of card making....of which I am addicted ! I began making cards a few months before Dan was deployed to Iraq.I wanted to make sure he had a new card to open every day, so I used BlueMountian.Co and created him 2 months worth of cards !About a year ago I saw that famous infomercial for a little bug called a Cricut.Well, after watching it numerous times, I HAD to have it...and I ordered it!!!Then I found the Cricut Message Board and I hit pay dirt!!! I was, and still am so inspired by some of the talented women on that board!I have to give them credit for making me the card maker that I am today!!!
Thank you ladies, from the bottom of my heart!
I hope you enjoy looking at my cards, as much as I enjoy making them!!!
