One can never have enough cake!

I recently hosted a StampinUp party.  Has anyone else hosted these parties? They are very fun and you can get some great products. I wanted to design a very simple one layer invitation that I can pop in the mail. Time to pull out those StampinUp ink pads and go to town.

I also created these fun Thank You gifts for my friends. It is a Paper Cake and it was so fun to make. I put yummy peanut butter M&Ms inside the cake. Anyone want a slice???

Have a great day,

Invitation Supplies:
Stamps: The two flowers on the left side and the small yellow flowers is from Papertrey Ink DayDreamer, dark purple flower is by Amuse Stamps, and Martha Stewart butterflies. Sentiment by Penny Black Petal Party.

New Year's Resolution

WOW, the time has flown and I haven't been writing or posting anything to this blog. Bad me... Ok, so I will try to post and write more often. First off for the new year....a graduation card! Hope you like it. I threw everything into this card: watercolor background, die cut word, shaker card appeal. LOL!
