What a Day!


It's beautiful today…very "springy!"  We had a great workshop yesterday at club, and Wendy made the most delicious cupcakes.  They were chocolate (maybe devil's food?  I devoured mine so fast, it was hard to remember!) and the icing was the best!  She sprinkled each one with a little decorative sugar which matched the napkins, cups and plates (which were gorgeous!).  And each cupcake was a different color.  Since we have two sessions for club in case someone can't come to one, she left the cupcakes for Saturday.  That was very, very risky.  I know they're there and can hear them calling me.  If Mike & the boys know they're there, our Saturday gang may not have snacks!  I think Wendy understands boys, though, because she baked a cake for our family, so we can snack on that instead of her beautiful cupcakes.  (And by "snack," I mean eat it until we're stuffed.)

I made this card to commemorate the day!  The "designer paper" is actually a piece of one of the napkins from the party.

 I watercolored the image from "On the Grow" on Confetti White card stock with watercolor crayons and a blender pen, then added some rhinestone jewels, Crystal Effects (on the jar) and Smooch "top coat" paint (on the flowers and leaves).    It's much sparklier in person.  I can almost even imagine that I can smell them blooming.  Oh, wait…those are the roses I got for playing for Kelley's recital, so I'm not imagining.

Have a wonderful day!  Thanks for stopping in.
