This is a card I made for a friend who went above and beyond and got me 2 (not 1 But 2) Cricut cartridges. It was so thoughtful of her and her husband. He bought my husband a very cool tool that he had been wanting. So we both received fun toys. The gifts were because my husband was getting relocated for work and we were supposed to be moving. So they were moving gifts. Now the move is on hold, so they are an anniversary slash maybe moving present. At any rate we love them! If you read this blog Deb, Thank you! I have been wanting the Sweet Treats Cartridge for a while now, and she knew that. I don't know why I like crafting with cupcakes and ice cream because I can't eat either, but I do find them fun! I must be living vicariously through crafting! I use my cartridges most for scrapbooking. I use the letters a lot for journaling, and she knew that too! So she bought me Lyrical Letters. It is cool because there are at least 6 fonts out of one cartridge. More bang for your buck! Anyway, all that to tell you why I made the card!

Thank you for leaving a comment on my blog. I think your cupcake is beautiful... its fun to see how the same image can be done in different ways. The designer paper gives it a much more elegant look, where as mine is more cutesy. :)

I loved the card when I received it, and I still do. There's something about getting a card that someone has handmade, that is so special. The colors and all of the elements of the card are super cute. Thank you for the card. Hugs, dj
