Stampin Up Crazy for Cupcakes and Photo of the Day

Hi Friends!! Happy Friday! Gosh, I'm glad it's Friday! My favorite day is Friday because I get to stay up late and my family gets to stay up late with me! LOL! We usually hang out late at night watching movies. It's just fun! What is your favorite day?



Initially, I wasn't "feeling" this card. I'm not sure why. I think it's my choice of designer paper. I think the image was calling out for something cuter. . .but I'm trying to rid my ever growing scrap pile and I couldn't find a cute green/pink designer paper in my scrap pile. Can you believe that?

Anyway. . .I colored the image with my Copic Marker and added a bit of Stickles to the image. I double stamped the image and remounted one image with foam tape.







Here is a close up of my card. I love creating 3D effects to my images. . .it's just fun to see it pop up!

I really don't have much to say today. I have a lot of things to do and I just want to get this card posted.

Anyway. . hope y'all have a wonderful day!

Photo of the Day

Flying Dakota

This is a photo of my dog Dakota! He is a super excited dog and very greedy! We love playing with his mind by showing him doggie treats and holding it up. Because Dakota is so greedy, he'll jump like mad to get to the treats so that his brother Phoenix can't get at it first. He'll jump really high and he can actually jump a few feet high. He just needs a motivation and he'll keep doing it until you give him the treat.

The terrible thing is that he'll swallow the treat whole. . .gosh, he don't even get a taste of it. He'll sometimes regurgitate it and hide it somewhere in our yard. He sort of accumulates his treats and search for them later in the day. We figured that he stashes them somewhere after we realized he seem to always have treats that we know we did not give him. That is how greedy he is. . . .crazy dog.

This is adorable Maria!!! i love the green and pink color combo and of course your layout is amazing! You do such a great job of creating dimension in your cards! The cupcake looks like it is really! I also adore those buttons down the side! I am really trying to use my buttons more! I seem to be horrible at hoarding them! LOL!

How cute is Dakota!! Our dog is the same way! Jumps up to get his treats and swallows them almost whole!! You can't give him doggie ice cream or otherwise he will get an ice cream headache! LOL!

Smiles,
janna
