Who likes Cupcakes?

A very quick post today as I should be getting ready for our mini-vacation. I just mailed out two fun swaps today — both very sweet.

First is my cupcake card for MLTLUV2scrap’s Do you like cupcakes? swap. When I was in Michaels the other day, they had the entire line of cupcake and other sweet images from Studio G. The images were just too cute to pass up. I have to say I wasn’t impressed by the quality of the sentiments when I inked them up, but the images are great. These four cupcakes came in one set. Each cupcake has a different embellishment on it — the cherry is covered with Crystal Effects and the next has Star Dust Stickles. The bottom two have Iced Lavender Shimmerz and Lavender Stickles. The layout was easy and quick to duplicate. If you don’t have the Swiss Dots embossing folder for the Cuttlebug, I highly recommend it. It is certainly my go-to folder.

The next card is for Wendy’s (SayStampsPlease) Cakes, Cupcakes & Cookies swap. Since I did cupcakes on the other card, I decided to go with a cake on this one. This cake is so fabulous! It is from There She Goes Cupcakes Mix & Match set. The cake is so much fun to color and there are so many possibilities. I wanted to do something very elegant, so again I used my Swiss Dots folder. Berry Sorbet from PaperTrey Ink is one of my favorite colors and I love the look of it against the white.

I participated in my first Secret Sister swap on SCS, starting in March. I am now hosting my first swap with many of those same ladies. We are the “Not So Secret Sweet 16 Summer Swap”. Say that 3 times fast! We will be swapping through the summer and are already chatting away. I’ll be adding a blog roll of the ladies who blog from that group. Feel free to pay them a visit.

We are off for a mini-vacation to Providence, Rhode Island. I’m really looking forward to it and our daughter is all excited to go on a “little trip”.

Thanks for stopping by!
