Ye Olde Cake Shoppe

I've always been fascinated by the "awning card". So, after some serious on-line research and tips from Dawn Olchefske, I set about making my own cake shoppe on a 4-1/4" x 5-1/2" tent card. It was no where near as daunting as I thought it would be. 

I had no one in mind for this card. Since I just wanted to have a go at making one I grabbed the last stamp used: "Thank You". So here's something from me to me...with gratitude! ;-p

This card has potential and would work for any occasion. How about an apothecary for Halloween or bakery with gingerbread men for Christmas. Perhaps a flower shop for Mother's Day or a tool shed for Father's Day. The possibilities are endless. I think I'm going to have a go at the variations...that would be fun.

Those lil' cakes look like their sitting on the counter. How cool is that!

Little cupcakes all in a row.

Close-up - yummy yummy!

No one has sent me an entire cake shop to say thank you... but I live in hope! 

That's all from me today. Thanks for dropping in and I hope to see you around soon!
