Celebrate Good Times!

Coffee of the Day - Caramel Creme

Howdy folks! sorry it has been a week since I last posted. Blogger has been giving me some fits again lately, so it was tough for me to post. hoping hoping that this one goes through...... keeping fingers crossed that they can get all of the problems fixed. honestly, in light of the tragedies with the storms across our country and around the world, blogging woes pale in comparison. my prayers to all of those affected.

Be prepared - in the next few days (again, crossing fingers Blogger co-operates!) you are going to be bombarded with lots of papercrafting posts here! so grab your coffee or tea and get ready! :)

This evening's card uses a fun cupcake turtle image from Whimsy & Stars. I paired it with a sentiment from Raindrop Echo, which was sprayed with candy apple glimmer mist. the cupcake icing, hat ruffle & pompom have been covered in stickles. the candle flame was painted with shimmerz. papers are from the new Basic Grey Hellow Luscious collection - what a fabby one!!!!! The gorgeous flower is a Prima. buttons were salvaged from a shirt David was throwing away...... love to do that!

see y'all tomorrow! love ya!
