Ok, somehow I got crazy behind on my card & gift making.  This card went out the day before the recipient's birthday. That's cuttin' it close for me!  I always have a 2 day cushion, just in case.  Not knockin the USPS, since that's my daddy, but you never know.

I also found that as excited as I was about this cupcake set, I'm having a hard time using it. I'm not sure what my problem is, I just get blocked.  I find I can't get the colors or the placement to work and bring me the kind of happiness I get from actually eating cupcakes.  Oh well. I've got plenty of other things I've got to get done in the next month. A graduation card, a couple of non-cupcake birthday cards, an anniversary gift & card (i think you're gonna like this one) and the cards & gifts for the staff at the elementary school.

Oh, yeah. One more little thing. If you visit Nichole's blog on a regular basis, you might recognize this card. Yeah, I stole it. Hers {scroll doooowwwwn, you'll hit it} was so visually stunning & exciting, I couldn't wait to make one just like it. So I did.  Ok, maybe not just like it, but you can tell where I got my idea. *sigh* She's my stamping hero. K, gushing over. Just wanted to give credit where it was due.

Here a polka dot, there a polka dot, everywhere a polka dot ... so cool! I had to actually study it to enjoy the variety.
