Cupcake Kitty

Pin It

Happy Tuesday! I had the day off of work on Monday for President’s Day. It was wonderful, especially since my hubby and daughter still had work and school. It was so great having a day to myself. I have to admit I did spend a bit of time in my craft room working on DT projects.

My card today is a birthday card for a friend using one of the new digital images from the Whimsy and Stars Studio. I love this kitty and can see myself using her again and again.

The rose on the top of the cupcake is layered. I had the card all finished and then thought I would use my clear glitter pen to add a touch of sparkle. I accidently grabbed my silver pen instead of the clear and it look terrible! I quickly printed out another image, colored and cut out the image to hide my boo-boo. (Tip: When working with digis, after I print them I always jot the size either on the back of the image or in the margins so if I have to reprint the image I know exactly what size I used.)


Don’t forget to check out my February followers candy HERE.

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.
