Birthday Cupcake

Hello and Happy Wednesday! I hope you all are having a GREAT day. Today I hope to get back to my Sun Salutations (yoga) which I've missed dearly since hurting my back. But I'm on the mend.

Yesterday Bean went to pick up her shoes and said "oooh, my back hurts....I can't pick up my shoes." Well, that's Mama's girl for you!!

Thank goodness for quick cards (I can't sit for too long right now) and great layouts. I used Create a Critter Cricut cart for the cupcake (shift-Poodle at 3") and George and Basic Shapes for the word bubble (flipped at 1.5"). DP is Paper Studio's Poteeka Souffle, sewing and glaze.

Really, who DOESN'T love a cupcake?! I think this would be great for a kid...but it's also got a retro feel to it. Well, I'll stash it away and see who it ends up going to.

Thanks for visiting today!

What a cute cupcake! The patterned paper bring out the colors nicely. Great job on the stitching! Thank you for playing along with us at Birthday Sundaes.

This is so sweet Lola! Hope you are feeling better soon!

As for Staples cardstock -- it was Staples cardstock (110 lb), but it doesn't compare to PTI. That was a printed colored image, so it worked. However, I attempted it with Copics and the colors bled badly. Plus, you can tell the difference in weight -- even though they are the same poundage, they weigh & stand up completely different. It's good if you need it for a layer or non-colored image.
