A Birthday Cupcake

Hi everyone!  Hope you all had a great weekend!

It’s tuesday already and my youngest son  is finished school and the other only has this week and two days left!  I am as happy as he is to find there is no homework this last week!  Time to kick back and relax a bit!   It is really starting to warm up too and I am loving it!!   Life is good.

O.k onto my card for today!   You will be seeing a lot of birthday cards from me this next week!  I have an order of 15 to make.   I am really happy about it, because all the money is going to The Weekend To End Breast Cancer!!  My friend walks the 60 k walk to raise money for cancer research and this is her third year!!  She needs to raise a minimum of $2000. ,  so I have been helping out each year by selling  some cards for the cause.

Here is the first of the 15 birthday cards…

I used Pretty in Pink cs for the base and Chocolate chip for the first panel.  The next panel is Basic Grey Bittersweet dp, then Pretty in Pink again.   I wrapped the chocolate chip satin ribbon around the top panel and popped the cupcake, that I pieced together with SU! dp, onto the corner with dimensional foam adhesive.   The bad news is I’m now hungry for some chocolate, and I don’t have any in the house!!!

Remember when I mentioned that I would be adding to my blog candy?  Well here is the first addition:
