Wow...it's hard to believe that today is the last day of June!! It amazes me how quickly the days go by! We have been thoroughly enjoying our wonderful weather! All the moisture we've gotten (yeah, including all the snow...LOL!) has really made things SO beautiful - greener than we've seen in years!! I'll have to try and remember to snap some pictures this evening...
Here's a quick and easy birthday card I made earlier today.
I used one of the cupcakes and sentiment from the For the Love of Cupcakes set to create this little 4 1/4" square card. The cupcake tops are paper pieced and I added a button on top of each one. OH...I learned a very random but possibly very useful thing while making this card! I had all of my pieces embossed, stamped, and paper pieced...practically all finished (I just needed to adhere them all together) when I smudged some sugar-free chocolate onto the white part of the cupcake!! ARGHHH!!! Well, then I thought I would try erasing it (why not, right?)...and guess what? It worked!! Yep, just a plain ole' pink eraser did the trick! Woohoo!! So...eat as much chocolate as you want while stamping (as long as you have an eraser handy)! LOL!
Well, that's it from me today! I hope you all enjoy your day! ~Laurie
