mmmmm and a cupcake

Hello again!  Time for something sweet to go with that cup of coffee!

This card will be entered into the MFT Sketch Challenge. 

I must say I am getting a lot of mileage out of these Designer Papers, A Perfect Summer, from Echo Park.  (envelope is not made from these)  The stamp set is Lots Of Thoughts, by Flourishes.  Image colored with Copic Markers.  Several Sakura Glitter pens used to add some sparkle.   Some Baker's Twine to decorate the Spellbinders Lacy Circle die and an enamel brad.  I really like this color combo, nice and bright and fresh.  And yes, that is another matching envelope.  lol
I am also decorating the inside of every card I make.  Just finishes it all off so nicely.
A little bit of sparkle, a little bit of shine!
I made some home made banana bread and peanut butter cookies this morning, but now I really want a sweet, sugary cupcake.....and a cup of coffee.....oh man!!!
Thanks for coming by.


  1. Looks good enough to eat Donna! Will join you for some Banana bread lol Good luck

  2. You are so smart to finish the inside of the card. I must start doing that too. Didn't we make a pack long ago to do that? lol!! And love that your are doing the envies too - and I happen to recognize that paper, I have it too. This card is just so sweet (no pun), and I, too, love the colors. Great take on the sketch!

  3. I love your cupcake card and your coffee card as well. Both make me want a piece of cake and coffee right now.

  4. Now, this card..... I just love the color combo. It is my favorite. Creative way to use the bakers twine too. You are way ahead of me with finishing the inside of your cards, but I have been making envelopes too. Great way to use up the 12 X 12 scrapbook papers that are two sided.

    1. Oh just to clarify, I do use the 12x12 papers, but they are single sided, I make the envie and then make an insert, combing plaids and stripes and dots etc.....kind of fun! ;)

  5. Oh; Donna my dear, I love, love, love this card.....and I would love to have banana bread, peanut butter cookies and coffee with you. I used to bake all the time but now it's just me & the old guy and we DO NOT need all those calories :(

  6. Love this card! It is so fun and happy! You are outdoing yourself with the inside details and matching envelope! Well done you! Remember when you make ANY Birthday card you can enter it over at Seize the Birthday too! :)

  7. Very pretty card! I love the colors, design and that lovely cupcake! I really need to start finishing the inside of my cards. You are my inspiration!
