How are you this morning?
I'm pretty good.
Do you have any hobbies out side of paper crafts?
I cross stitch, paint my nails so much it should be a hobby, read, and bake.
I love to make me some cupcakes. The guys I work also love that I make cupcakes as I'm sure you can imagine. I love to try new kinds. I almost never make the same ones twice. My favorite is Blueberry Cheesecake. My husbands is Chocolate Peanut buttercup.
I haven't had the time to make any recently with all this job crap going on so after the hinting (i.e. walking up to dispatch, looking around lost, and saying "um, are there any cupcakes up here?" ) from co-workers I made some last night. To fit with the season I made Pumpkin with cream cheese frosting.
I thought they would be dense, like banana bread but they were actually pretty light and moist!
Now that you're hungry let's talk cards haha!
The card for today is for Addicted to CAS. The code word this time is going to be super popular.
See what I'm saying? They are going to have tons of entries!!
Here's my take on it. It's a rainbow. Of course :)
I used the Grid stencil from My Favorite Things. I bought it about a month ago but haven't used it yet! I adored it but nothing I was working on fit with it. As soon as I saw the code word I was like FINALLY!
I taped it down really well and then used my black gel pen to start tracing some random squares. It was kind of like being a kid again playing Tetris. Please tell me you played that game. It's a classic!!
After I had them all outlined I went back and colored with my copics.
The sentiment is from Altenew's Super Script. I love that whole set!!
Where it overlapped the squares I outlined it in a white gel pen to set it apart. I love the way it looks. I might have to use it again :) Add some stickles to finish it off.
Thanks for visiting me! You guys seriously make my day :)
