Birthday Sweets

I had a chance to create a couple cards yesterday afternoon. I'm really trying hard to find time a couple days a week to work on creative endeavers. Sadly, I'm so out of practice that it takes me forever to come up with even a few ideas. I watched three episodes of Grey's Anatomy while making these TWO cards. Of course, I did find myself stopping to watch a little too often. Maybe I'd better stick with Friends while I craft. I've seen all of those episodes enough times to just listen.

Anyway, the cards used Piece of Cake stamps. The colors are Hollyhock and Juniper, two colors I've never used together before. I used the Swiss Dots folder on my Cuttlebug for the background. It's hard to tell, but there are sparkles and Stickles on the cupcakes and stand.
We rented 2012 last night. Austin loves disasters He's always checking out books on earthquakes and tornados and the like. He loves the movie Twister, so we figured he's like it. Afterward, he said it was scary. He told me there was just "too much disaster" in that movie. He was really freaked out about the super volcano under Yellowstone. He asked a whole bunch of questions. He's never liked volcanos, so I guess there goes any chance of headed to Yellowstone this summer--lol!

What cute cards. Yeah for catching up on Grey's. :) I've always been interested in the super volcano, so I'm happy to be going to Yellowstone this summer for Brent's family reunion. I'll have to see the movie.

Cute cards - love to see you sharing your creations again! I just had to laugh about your 2012 story - my daughter is totally freaked out about the volcano under Yellowstone so we will NOT be watching that movie! We live in Wyoming so she is especially worried about living so close ;-P
