Vintage Birthday Cupcake Shoe and man, is it cold!

Coffee of the Day - French Vanilla

I again apologize for being away for so long. I'm visiting drs. trying to determine just what is going on with my poor ol' body these days! HOPEFULLY we are getting closer to an answer and then I can get back to my beloved stamping again!!!!! crossing fingers and toes and eyes and ears and whatever I can find that all will be back to normal (or whatever that is in my wonky world!!!) soon! thank you SO MUCH for your well wishes and prayers!!!!! it means the world to me!!!

So now, on to the card...
This is one of my fave cards that I have made - it is spunky and whimsical (one of my fave words when it comes to papercrafting, as many of you know!) as well as incorporating vintage elements and that fave evah paper - Basic Grey! This happens to use their Two Scoops line. The stamp is from Stampendous and is called 'Birthday Cake' The cupcakes and candle were paper pieced using the BG paper. The frosting, shoe, word 'cake', fork, and laces were covered in stickles to give a little extra glitz and shine. The chipboard photo corners were covered in ink and then sanded to distress. The lace and buttons are vintage finds from Etsy as always! The main image was popped up with foam tape.

It is super cold here, with temps at -6*, and that is without the wind chill factored in! I like the cold, but even that is REALLY cold for me! so all of you stay bundled up and warm! have a nice cuppa something toasty hot and cuddle up with your lovey dovey!
