A Girl and Her Cake

I hope your long Memorial Day weekend is off to a great start. Don is already on his way to a golf course and I'm sitting here drinking a cup of coffee before getting started on the day. We really worked hard around this house this week and we both deserve a break. So really my day is free to do whatever I want. Hmm...wander what that might be? Maybe some crafting...or just reading...or both. My aunt and sister loaded me up with new books this past weekend so I am set for some summer reading.

Today's card is for this week's The Cat's Pajamas Tuesday Challenge (TCPTUES160) which is a sketch. Normally I am not a huge fan of sketches but I always like Leigh's as they are never boring. I stamped the TCP Girl and Her Cake image onto Copics X-Press It blending cardstock, colored with Copic Markers and then cut out. After mounting onto a paper doily I placed pop dots underneath the bunny ears. I finally cut into one of my new My Mind's Eye Lime Twist 6x6 pads for the staggered background pieces. I did change the sketch up a little by creating it in portrait style.

Products: The Cat's Pajamas stamp, My Mind's Eye dp, PTI die and cs, American Crafts ribbon, Spellbinder's Nestabilities, Copic Markers

I do not understand Blogger at all these days. Not only do they have the logging in issue on some blogs (which I've never understood anyway) and my follower's have all disappeared but now I can not upload my photos directly into a post. I had to go around it by uploading to my Picasa web album and then linking from there. There is no easy way that I found to search what image you want to link so I had to just page through to the end. In the grand scheme of life not a big deal but it is definitely a pita.  


  1. STUNNING! Love the color and paper choices. Really beautiful.

  2. Oh yeah- def not disappointed with this one! You are awesome lady! I've never had problems where I have to log in to comment, or uploading pics, but I always seem to have chunks of my info missing like followers and pagecounts, is a 'Grrrr' for me...esp since I have no computer skills! If I had to upload to somewhere different and then to my blog, I think I'd have to consider throwing the towel in on the whole thing! Way to persevere!! lol

  3. Yea, I agree about Blogger being a total PITA lately... whatever 'fixes' they are making I hope they are done soon!
    Your card looks great, that new MME paper sets the perfect party vibe for that cute image! Adorable! :)

  4. Great card! I like the sketch.
