I am a new empty nester, and I love to make cards and ATCs. I am always looking for ways to use the product I have, to learn new techniques and ways to do things, and most of all, to have fun with the creating of my art.

Some time ago, I bought some embossed cupcake paper, thinking that it would make some cute cards.. well, fast forward two years, I still hadn't touched it.. until yesterday. I cut some up, and did a fun birthday card for my friend, who's turning 39 next month. I used Stickles Christmas Red to highlight the cherries and sprinkles on the cupcakes. I used Hero Art stamps for the cupcake ( I think) and the verse ( for sure). The DP is from SU that I bought, and have used only twice before. I am TRYING to use what I have, instead of buying everything that is trendy... I end up with paper sitting around for YEARS. I really like this fun, whimsical card, so I may end up making more of them.. oh, and the tiny cupcake punch... my dear MIL bought a set of tiny punches for me from Avon some years ago, and the cupcake was a part of the set.
