Cakeorama!!!


These are my favorite cake images, I think! I have a lot of stamps, so I don't want to be rash, but these Anna Wight stamps from Whipper Snapper are so sweet and charming, I just love them!

I wanted to use my old My Mind's Eye from 2006, so that's how I chose the colors. Kaleidoscope is one of my favorite summer lines, the colors are just perfect for August, don't you think? I colored the images with Koh-I-Noor pencils/OMS, and added some Aqua Stickles to the dots on the cake, popped them all up on foam tape and called it good.

I hope you are all having a wonderful summer! My oldest and I just got back from Denver. We picked up his guitar from the repair shop, did some shopping with my little sister, and picked up a bike DH bought on eBay. I'm so glad to be home! It's only a three hour drive, but Denver is a big city now, and traffic is insane! I get very nervous in all that traffic.

Love this adorable card. You did such a great job cutting out those small images (not an easy thing to do)! Wonderful design and such a happy card!

So glad you won some S2G stamps! Sure hope you are able to play the Twisted Thursday sketch tomorrow.

I love it!
Coming from your house to get back to my house scares me. I hate that stretch of I-25. Those drivers are awful.
When can you come back?
