My gosh I have been busy the last month - besides working - ugh - my DH has been sick twice - just now almost getting over it, and the dog fell down - didn't break her shoulder but it got inflamed - she didn't do it once but twice - had a nice visit with the vet and walked out with pills and a nice bill - wouldn't you know it.
I so appreciate getting extra days to make cards, but lately it's been last minute and just this minute I finished this card. Nothing jelled for me - no ocean stamps, no bathing beauties, no backyard swimming pools, no fish, no flip flops - nada - YIKES. So what's a girl to do - put on the DIAMONDS. I hand polished all 42,000 facets of these diamonds on these 3 little cupcakes. I can do bling - I was just afraid no one would bring extra cookies so I made cupcakes and of all things used today's color challenge.
So there you have it, Daffodil Delight, Pacific Point, and Rich Razzleberry cupcakes. I'm still trying to do a Karen B Barber bow - oh my she's good.
I double stamped the top of the cupcakes, cut them out and popped them up on dimensionals. Called Crush Curry ribbon out of retirement to make a quest appearance. Lots of layers.

Cupcakes are ALWAYS perfect, and this card is adorable! So sorry about your dog and hubby and everything else. Life never just gives us a gentle sprinkle, it rains and pours all at once. Hoping things get better for you soon.

Well, I never! Never have I seen such wonderfully polished diamonds! Oh My Gosha, Sasha!....Oops, sorry that was a distant memory pulled outa my head! Snort!
I love this sweet little card and you should get an award, do you know how hard it is to combine a synchronized swimming card and the color challenge? Whoo hoo! You did good! Oh, and guess what, the cookies got soggy where I hid them! We need new cupcaks! Whoot!
