I'm Still Here!

So sorry I haven't posted in a while.  Life has been crazy (good) here lately.  David got a job (God is GOOD)!  We've been scrambling to work on planning for a new house since we sold ours last fall.  We're building a one-story house that will better accommodate Ben's mobility needs.  I'm definitely getting re-acquainted with the word "compromise" throughout this process.  Ha!

I made this card awhile back.  (I hope to get back to more regular stamping once David is back at work.)  I used the new Create A Cupcake stamp set and coordinating punch.  David has learned some things about SU! since sitting behind me in our little "office" cubby for 2 months.  He couldn't believe that I have a punch (not just one, honey) that aligns with a stamp set.  I told him "that's the beauty of Stampin' Up!...coordination".

Here's what I used:

Crumb Cake
     8-1/2x5-1/2 Card Base
     2-7/8x2-1/2 Scalloped Layer
     Scrap for Scallop Circle

     Scrap for Flower

     2-3/4x2 Layer Behind Cupcake
     2-3/4x1/4 Strip
Whisper White Scraps for Cupcake

Have a great weekend!  Hope to be back soon....

Pin It!


  1. This is very the little cupcake!

    Don't let David know too much about all your stamping goodies. :)

  2. Very cute card! My husband likes to "learn" too when he comes to my craft room.....if only he really knew!

  3. This is adorable! I bet the last few months have been interesting for you and David! It's hard to work with precious husbands in the house when you're used to them being at work. Believe me, it is an adjustment and took me a while! But I love it now!
