Birthday Candles

candle-card

Once you get past a certain age, my mom always would put 3 candles on the cake.  One for life, one for strength, and one for good luck for the next year.  So, I used her rule to make this card using Sweet Cupcake and the matching thinlits.

It is super quick since the dies cut out the candles and that it’s a 2-3 step stamping set!  I love purple-so I used Rich Razzleberry and the Blooms & Bliss DSP!  I started with randomly stamping the streamers and confetti with Sweet Sugarplum on the Sweet Sugarplum base.  I then used the Rich Razzleberry for the main part of the candle and Blushing Bride for the background color of the candles.  The flames I used Crushed Curry and then tipped the stamp with a Tangerine Tango Stampin’ Write Marker!  Of course I used dimensionals!  I go through those like I go through Wink of Stella clear, Burlap ribbon, and Snail!

Stay tuned for pictures of all my craft show items!  I have been feverishly making these for our new high school!  They have a Holiday Cheer Market from 8am-12pm this Saturday, December 10th!

Celebrating a wonderful woman

I needed a quick card for a special person in our lives!  My stepmother!  She turns 70 today, but my father planned over a month ago for us all to surprise her with a nice dinner at III Forks!  Her daughter, son-in-law, grandkids, sister, brother-in-law, cousins, Pete, and myself were all waiting in a private room.  Some traveled from Austin, TX and the daughter with her family had just flown in from Boston that evening! It was a true surprise and she was just flabbergasted! She is special to me because she has such a giving heart.  And after my last 5 months kicking breast cancer, I really couldn’t have done it with out her.  It was like my mom from heaven was channeling through her.  We are definitely a lot closer now!

The card was a color combo that I enjoy a lot!  Basic Gray, Smoky Slate, and Sweet Sugarplum.  I used the Number of Years stamp set and matching Framelits to complete the card.  And what card wouldn’t be super special with out Wink of Stella Clear?

Here is her super yummy cake and a picture of me and my hubby!  We can clean up nice once and a while!  Plus, we had a date night!  A very rare occurrence!  We had the steak and lobster along with tons of appetizers that were just amazing!
