Cupcake Card



This cupcake template is quickly becoming one of my favorite Lasting Impressions templates. I seem to reach for it every time I need a birthday card. It's just cute and fits perfectly in my Marvy circle & scallop punches. And I have to tell you, I made this card entirely from my scraps!! If you didn't know, I normally do not keep my scraps at all, unless they're Lasting Impressions paper. I always seem to forget to use the scraps when I make a card and then I accumulate piles and piles of scrap paper and eventually throw it out when I clean, so why keep them in the first place? So I am pretty proud of myself for using nothing but scraps to make this card!

I'm getting out of town for a few days, away from the inauguration mess around here. I went to the inauguration in 2001 and there were 400,000 people attending. It was an amazing experience and I feel so lucky to live close to DC and have the opportunity to attend an event like that. I had never seen so many people in my life, or been so cold! The estimates for attendance this year are 2-5 million. I can't imagine what that is going to be like, the only word that comes to mind is chaos! I'll be back to blogging late this week.

Great card Heidi! I have been really liking the cupcake craze lately myself. I just bought my first cupcake rubber stamp this week. You don't keep scraps? Maybe I should learn from you. I have a huge box full of scraps and I almost always cut a new piece instead of going through my scraps. I didn't know you lived so close to D.C. One of the schools my son is considering is Corcoran Art Institute in D.c.

Hope you have a nice time "getting away"!
