Happy Birthday To You - With a Cherry on Top!

The holidays have passed, but my tree is still up. Is anyone else in the same boat as me? I hope to tear everything down tomorrow. It's not as exciting as putting it up. Oh well. It's gotta be done!

I decided to take a break from the Valentines Day cards. I needed to make a card for a friend at work who has a birthday on Monday and Stampin' Up! Crazy for Cupcakes stamp set was calling my name! It's just perfect for birthday cards.

I thought the cute little cherries on top of the cupcakes matched the SU! Summer Picnic Designer Series Paper perfectly! It's a little hard to see in the picture, but I used white Fun Flock for the icing on my cupcakes. Just a little something different to add texture.

We are just weeks away from the release of the Stampin' Up! Spring/Summer 2009 catalog! I've seen some previews, and it's going to be great! If you would like me to reserve a copy of the catalog for you, just drop me an e-mail at tiffanymiller1@verizon.net.

Enjoy the rest of your weekend and thank you for stopping by!

Adorable card! Looks great with the cherry DSP :) You are not alone, just took down the tree yesterday, but everything else is still up and needs to be put away - I dread this part! Much more fun to put it all out!

I love your card. I never thought of putting that paper with the cupcake stamps. Perfect!! I'm in the boat with you. I was supposed to take down my tree this past weekend but it is still up!! Linda

I never thought to put this DP and the cupcakes together. You're brilliant. Of course, they have the cherries in common. So pretty. Hugs, Mary
