Birthdays & Donuts...

Last week, Lindsay introduced her new Sweet Treats 2 digital stamp set. Just look at all this yumminess!

I have to admit, I think this set gave me a serious craving for donuts. I kind of felt like Homer Simpson because all I could think about was donuts. Finally, I convinced my husband to stop at Paielli's Bakery and pick some up. So, should I be ashamed that I ate two donuts when I am trying to lose weight or should I be happy that I showed some restraint and only ate two? Tough call.

Since I was so donut inspired, I decided to make this card.

Look at that chocolaty goodness. Oh boy, I feel another donut craving coming on. The donut is covered with crystal effects and it looks just like chocolate glaze in real life. I used some beads that I found in my old jewelry making supplies as sprinkles.

So do you think if I eat nothing but carrots and water all week, I can have another donut or two? Three? Geez, I need to stop looking at this card.

Thank you for looking! I hope I inspired you to get this delicious set from Lindsay's Stamp Stuff and make a yummy card to share with us (and go eat a donut).

Please stop by the rest of the DT blog's to see what the cooked up this week. Remember to stop by Lindsay's blog to pick up your weekly freebie. I would also like to welcome Tracy Viston to the team. Please give her a warm welcome and leave her some love on her blog.

It has been a really long time since I have been able to spend time in my craft room.  One of my New Years resolutions was to get back into my craft room on a regular basis.  Well, it is now October and I am finally here.  I'm hoping to be back more often.

I made this card to send to a family member that has been in my thoughts a lot lately.

I hope to have more to share soon.

Sweet 16!

Hello!  I managed to sneak into my craft room for a bit today.  My daughter is turning 16 next week. (Where does the time go?)

Since the demise of Picasa, I have not found a new program to edit my photos.  I know there are several available but I have not had time to learn a new program.  I apologize that my photos are less than optimal at the moment.

Have a great day!  Thank you for stopping by.
