A Couple of Cupcakes

Hello there! I'm popping in very quickly to post a couple of cards I put together (rather hurriedly) last night. We have birthday party to attend this afternoon - 12 year-old twin girls. With all the goings-on of the past week I plum forgot to make their cards. So here it is: not very artistic nor imaginative... my kinda CAS (sorry Sandie! :-D) but I have a feeling they'll like it... (I hope!)

The patterned paper is from Dovecraft's Sugar and Spice 8x8 pad. The square card measures 4-1/4".

I cut and layered the cupcake image using Spellbinders Circles (SM & LG ) and Scalloped Circle (LG) dies. No foam tape because I couldn't find it - my craft table is in such a state... I blame the cyclone in Australia. But I managed to get my hands on some pink gingham ribbon. 

Here's a close-up of the image. It's a digi from PolkaDoodles Welcome Home CD. I applied some Stickles and a pink bling to jazz it up. 

The sentiment is from WMS Compact Sentiments set, stamped with Memento Rich Cocoa. Cutting and layering done with Spelbinders Oval (LG) and Scalloped Oval (LG) dies. 

Here are both the cards. I've made them identical... don't want to be responsible for starting a food fight at the party!

I'm linking my card with these challenges: Paper Crafting Journey "For A Girl"; Crafty Ribbons #38 "Anything Goes with Ribbon"; Sandy's Craftt Creations "February Anything Goes with a Twist - Birthday"; House of Gilli #49 "Anything Goes with Pink"; Carisma Cardz #4 "Pink & Brown" and Moving Along With The Times "Punch It Out - Fave Punches / Dies" - I'm using my go-to Spell binders Circles and Scallops.

Rosie's News: My little pumpkin is feeling better than she did yesterday...I think. She's still not eating very well, so I've resorted to hand-feeding just to get a decent amount in her. She has a few meds to take orally and an empty tummy simply will not do. Thank you for all your thoughts and prayers, which I'm diligently passing on to Rosie.  :-D

I'm a little behind on my visits and comment but will catch up today, so I dare say I'll be seeing you around soon! Thanks for stopping by and have a blessed weekend!
