Seize the Cupcake!


Michelle from Blissfulcreativity sent me these handmade beautiful cards. My heart sinks, or could even say "sings" when I think of the time & thought it took to make each & everyone... One card that is missing-- Michelle had made-- I gave to my father for his birthday today. His exact words were, "Well look at that...What are those little things (brads)? Now this is a terrific card." The card said on the cover Thinking of U- warm colors with little metal brads. That warmed my heart, his words...he knew it was special.
Thank you Michelle~ I LOVE each & everyone of them. It will be especially hard to give away the cupcake card---it is soooo darn cute. This one I plan on hanging in my soap kitchen.
So with this beautiful display of handmade cards I can seize the moment with a bird, a flower, a bow, a thank you, a bird, or simply a thinking of you....& best of all they were handmade---one at at time...
Michelle is super creative in many ways... she also is the host of Pixie Lee Soap Forum, & Don't Forget Minnesota (what a catchy name!).

Those are beautiful cards! Stamping is my other favorite craft...its just hard to do when there are so many little fingers that want to help = )

Beautiful is all that I can say. Perhaps some day I will have the patience to try my hand at making cards.

I love these! I scrapbook, well, use to. Ha! I've tried my hand at cardmaking, but couldn't perfect them. Lol! I don't know where Michelle finds the time!

I'm so happy that you like them. I really really enjoy making these and it is fun to be a part of a monthly swap group where we share our creations and get new ideas. I'm glad you like the cupcake one. I stalked my local archivers waiting for the hero arts cupcake stamp set. LOL!!

Hi, Mrs. Carrie~gigi! It's me, Nina, Joanna's daughter. I have a question. Will you PLEASE put a picture of yourself on your blog? I keep on asking my mom to show me what you look like but she says she doesn't have a picture of you to show me. I except you to be very pretty. (.:

P.S I love the bubblegum bath cupcake. Thank you!!!

I posted a comment, but I don't think it "took". I'll try again. Thank you for the lovely comments you made on my blog today. And - I love the cards especially the cup cake card. Thanks for sharing.

The cupcake card looks JUST like the card I bought for Chris for his birthday. I guess great minds think alike =)

Michelle said...

AM - did you buy it online? Hero Arts makes the cupcake/stamp set that I used on that card. They are super cute and would be great for making tags for cupcake soaps or those edible ones if given as gifts ;)
