Super Simple (and sweet too!)

Hey!

Happy Friday-Eve! Not long now until the weekend and although that kinda means my holiday is zooming by, it also means some nice time with my guy to chill-ax together!

Thanks so much for your really sweet comments about my lil' DT news, you're all so sweet and kind! Thank You!! I'd also like to point a "woot, woot!" to my crafty peeps, Ann who is now struttin' her stuff for the Wee Memories Scrappy Saturday Challenge DT, and Maureen who is now known simply as, Diva! as she's Verve's Guest Diva for August!!! Way to go ladies!

So just stoppin by today with a super quick card I whipped up this morning; it's gotta go through the mail which explains why it has no dimension at all (well apart from the bling and the HUGE dollop of Glossy Accents *wink*)

Couldn't you just scoff this cupcake in one?! LOL! Now because it's super glossy, here's a close up so you can actually see what that cake looks like rather than just seeing the reflection of my window in that icing:
Card Recipe

Stamps: PTI - Polka Dot Basics II/Hampton Art Footlongs - Cupcakes/Hero Arts - Sentiment
Ink: Versamark/Momento Black
Card: PTI Lavender Moon/White/Aqua Mist
Accessories: Hero Arts Bling/PTI Rick Rack Die/Cuttlebug/Promarkers/Glossy Accents/Corner Rounder Punch


My very own honey treated me to this lil' cupcake stamp set by Hampton Art last weekend so it seemed rude not to ink it up this week. He sure knows how to treat a lady....well....an inky kinda gal like me anyways!

Thanks so much for stopping by, have a super sweet weekend!!!!

Catch ya later!

P.S Edited to add - just one more lil' woot! I was selected as a Trigger Target over at Moxie Fab World for my Dancing Lanterns Card! What a week it's proved to be!

Super fine card, Aimes! What a great way to add texture and dimension all the while keeping the card mailable! I don't think I own one mailable card (lol), I'll have to try your technique!
