Sweet Red, White and Blue!

Yesterday was simply beautiful!  Super productive and enjoyable days like this are far and few between!  Yesterday it rained and tried to freeze us out.  My parents are still in town and we plan to meet up with several cousins for lunch on Monday!  Mmmm. . .  maybe Apple b's!  hehe

My craft show is today, it's usually pretty successful and gives me the opportunity to share my creations with people that truly appreciate the giving of "One of a kind" greetings for those special occasions!  Makes for a very long day usually so I hope hubby makes supper tonight! lol (hear that hunny?)


The Sentimental Sundays Challenge starts up today and the theme is Patriotic/use the colors of your Nations flag.  I've never made a Red White and Blue card before so I hope you enjoy this one!  YUM! huh?  Our Sponsor is Heart Song Designs this image is "Cupcake Rose" and also we have a sentiment from Valerie's Sentiments available for your projects!  So stop by and enter for some great prizes with your flags colors!










I love the vellum card design almost as much as adding the candy like beads and frosting like applique to the cupcake for that yummy look!  This is the first time I used the cricut machine to cut a form of which I used 3 different sizes to surround the cupcake like a plate. . .gonna have to use it more often!  The paper behind is musical design hence the sentiment "You are my hearts sweetest song"  Thought it just added the perfect touch!
Sorry about the glare!
