WAHOO… It’s Friday again!! And I actually have some fun plans for the weekend! We and another couple are going out to dinner and a movie tonight. And tomorrow I’m meeting up with SCSer’s Jami, JJStamper, WaterPixie, Sencie, debbiejjackson, 11Valerie11, and JoyofStamping at Joy’s house in Orange! I’m so excited to see everyone and I will be bringing my much loved treat of Puppy Chow. The last time I brought Puppy Chow to a large gathering there were very few people who knew what it was. I come from the Midwest and I guess I assumed everybody knows what Puppy Chow is… but I was wrong! Nobody would touch my munchie until I explained what it was. So, I’m taking a little poll. Post a comment and let me know if you know what Puppy Chow is (and no… it’s not the Purina brand dog food! LOL!). And then I’ll post the recipe and a picture of the batch I’m going to make tonight. OK… I’m getting slightly off the topic of Friday Cupcake Day (I tend to ramble). First I want to say thank you again to everybody who sent me cupcake images and I even had one person send me my very own cupcake stamps (5 of them!!)! Twelve people have sent me images and I did the drawing this morning for the ribbon sampler. Congrats to Amy Rohl (a.k.a. rohla)!! If you could email me your snail mail address I’ll get your ribbon off to you ASAP. Now to the card details… the cupcake image came from Louise Glynn and is made by Rubber Soul. The complete image has the stem of a flower and the cupcake is the bloom. I cut off the stem for the purposes of this card, but next time I use this image I’m going to use it all… it is so cute! This card will be for a coworkers birthday. I know it’s a bit kiddish, but we are doing a turtle theme for her birthday celebration so I had to use a turtle on the card. We’ll be eating turtles (caramel, pecans, chocolate) on turtle plates with turtle napkins and a matching turtle card. LOL! The turtle image is by Inky Antics and I started by coloring it and the cupcake with Prismacolor pencils and blending with gamsol and a stump. I added the Amuse oval as the ground for the turtle to sit on. And the birthday hat is a punch with a red pom pom attached with a glue dot. I doodled around the edges and added the celebrate sentiment from Lexicon of Love. The cupcake frosting and the oval are covered with stardust Stickles. The Certainly Celery card base is stamped with Print Pattern and the patterned paper is by Carolee’s Creations. If you’re still reading, you have a long attention span because I was long-winded today! 🙂 Have a wonderful weekend!
