I made this cake!!!

Well my friends.....I didn't think I really had enough to do in my life... so I decided to take some cake decorating classes!!! How fun!!! I made this cake in last nights class...it was the last class for a while. I think it turned out so pretty!!! AND it even tastes as good as it looks. The inside is dark chocolate with a pink peppermint filling...yummy!!
The total outside of the cake is made of fondant. even the flowers...we learned to make those a couple weeks ago.
I just had to post it!!! now it is back to making invites for my parents 50 wed Aviv. party...I will post those in a day or 2.
I don't know how many of you have ever mass produced cards/invites but OH my Heck!! & Uff Da!! it is tons of work!!! Better get back to it!!!
Happy middle of the week!!!

very quick guy card

My husband needed a guy BD card for his brother....OK, no problem....need it by tomorrow!! YIKES!!! OK...so it had to be quick AND for a guy. Not so easy. It is probably still a little girly, trying to go for the king for a day thing..hence the crown.
All of the paper is from CTMH. The sentiments are from Papertrey & I had gotten a whole tin full of chipboard crowns of various shapes & sizes a while back at our local SB store. I just embossed it in gold & added some rhinestones. very quick & very easy...good enough!! I guess it could also be used as a fathers day card...hummmmm.
that is it for today...it is past my bed time. Enjoy the rest of the week! We are expecting a cold front for the rest of the week...only in the 80's....hope you are enjoying beautiful weather where ever you are!!

Spread your wings

Well....things are getting a little better...at least I get part of a crafty day off!!!
Yesterday I took everything out of my craft room & reorganized!! it took me all day but it turned out great!!! I really do know where everything is....even my paper is organized!!!
So with a nice clean room it took me no time at all to create this little card!

All of the paper & ink are from Stampin up. The Stamp set I used is "A country Life" from Clear Artistic Stamps http://www.belindalandtroop.com/

the finished card is 5X5. The layout for this card is my take on the sketch over at

Well that is it for today....hopefully with my nice clean room & things a little less hectic at work I will be back to my old regular blogging self :)

Happy Birthday Jeannie

Holy Cow!! it has been so long since my last post that I nearly forgot how to do it!! My life is still crazy busy :(
but managed to create this little set for one of the girls at work. Had to think up something very quick & easy!! love these little baskets...can actually whip one up in about 15 mins. If you ever want to make one there are direction under Labels/tutorials. All of the paper is from Michael's as well as the cute ribbon. The cake punch is new from the Martha Stewart Line, It is meant for weddings, I'm sure but I thought it made a cute BD cake too!! If any of you think the card looks familiar I did case it from somewhere...unfortunately I am not sure where...something I saw a long time ago. The reason for the little flower on lower right of the card...DUH!!!! when I was all finished I dropped the card right on the brown ink pad!! That is what I get for working is such a messy craft room....you should see it!! OH MY HECK!!! I better get to cleaning it up as I have a project to prepare for our local card group by tomorrow YIKES!!! I better got to it & then off to work!
I really hope to get around to visiting you all this weekend some time! I feel really out of the loop :(
Hope you are all doing well
Thank you for stopping by!!!
