This is for today's SKETCH CHALLENGE # 399, Tuesday's COLOR CHALLENGE # 389 - Bravo Regal Starfruit, Monday's TECHNIQUE LOVERS CHALLENGE # 391 - No Stamping and Monday's CLEAN AND SIMPLE CHALLENGE # 184 - Inspired by the word SCHOOL. So often we always tend to think of pre-k, Kindergarden and grade school when we think of school. I do not remember much of my early education years but I do remember the fun I had in home ec class in the 10th grade. My mother raised me and a 3yr older brother of mine alone after the divorce when I was 3yrs old and so she worked 2 and 3 jobs just to make ends meet. That did NOT allow for a lot of home cooking so we ate out A LOT. Eating out does not allow for a daughter to learn how to cook from her mother so I learned a lot in home ec class plus had fun too boot. LOL.
I found this Rose Wild "Cherry Cupcake" dp and went wild with it.
I used my quickutz cupcake die and all 3 colors of cs to make it. I covered the cherry with glaze.
The sentiment is handwritten but please don't tell Shannon, she does not like it when I do that. LOL.
Now let's go to work and make some money.

Too often we underestimate the power of a touch, a smile, a kind word, a listening ear, an honest compliment, or the smallest act of caring, all of which have the potential to turn a life around. ~Leo Buscaglia

Aw, how cute and certainly SWEET! Who doesn't love a cupcake card?!!! LOVE hearing about your life. It is those tough times that sure do make us appreciate the good ones. I can see your Mother instilled an excellent work ethic in you and that seems harder to come by these days. Well done Neva!!!

Loved your personal story. Love this pretty pink cupcake card. You probably learned how to be one fantastic cook. All the cooking I knew how to do I learned in home ec too. I had a stay home mother that was a perfectionist, with no patience to teach us how to cook.
