Here is my version of sketch # 153 from CPS and Papertrey Ink

   I guess I caught my "crafty" bug from my Mom. She loves to quilt, crochet, knit, sew (take your pick) while I make my cards and paper crafts and we always have so much fun together! Maybe a little too much fun! She always says "We're going to get arrested for having too much fun!" Well today the cops were at my door! I had soooo much fun making this card that I almost got arrested! This is not my first card but it is my very first "card challenge" and I have to say, I enjoyed it completely! It's nice to come up with my own ideas but I really enjoyed working from a sketch. I absolutely love cupcakes and thanks to my mom for teaching me how to sew, I also LOVE stitching on my cards! The other technique I enjoy is using empty cereal boxes or granola bar boxes to re-enforce my die cut shapes. It gives them a certain dimension that I just love to "pop-up" on my cards! Thank you Reese's Puffs for this adorable cupcake! Also a big Thank You to CPS and Papertrey Ink for sponsoring this challenge!

I also wanted to include a picture of these adorable iPod Candy Valentines that my daughter and I made for her classmates.  I always enjoy Valentine's Day because my daughter and I love to search for cute Valentines to make instead of the boxed version from the stores.  We wrapped boxes of sweetheart candies in pink and blue paper and thanks to Disney's Family Fun magazine, printed out the templates for the playlists and control circle.

Have a great day!
