I won $50 worth of stamps from Your Next Stamp (thanks again Karen!) and this is one of the sets that I chose.
The challenge over at Your Next Stamp was to make a shaped card. I thought a cupcake shaped card would be perfect with Cupcake Fhiona and these are so easy to make! I added stickles to the dots on the "frosting" of the cupcake as well as her shoes, headband and of course the cupcake.
This card is also for the following challenges
Simon Says Stamps - All that sparkles (stickles)
Crafty Cardmakers - Use stamping on your project
Digital Ink Co. - colors
Last Wednesday, I spent a bit of time at school since the kids had their Halloween parties, and then we stayed after school to decorate Alicia's classroom bulletin boards. The kids had off Thursday and Friday but we were stuck home since Alicia was sick ~ ends up she has a sinus infection. On Saturday, right before trick or treating, Tyler got sick (but insisted he go out for just a bit) and had a temp around 103 that night. Today after Ashley got home from school, I took her temp and it was 103.8, so I was going to give her Tylenol, but then she got sick. Tonight I went to the doctor since over the weekend I developed a dry cough and wheezing along with chest tightness and have had a low grade fever ~ I have some viral infection. Gee...all these different illnesses in one house.....
I wanted Tyler to have his Business in a Box project done over the weekend, but things didn't work out that way, so we worked on it tonight a bit and need to get it finished tomorrow! He is making a candy shop called "Tyler's Tasty Treats".
