Cupcake Monday and BLOG CANDY UPDATE!!

Good Monday Morning to you all!!! Hope you all had a fun weekend! We went to my niece's 1st birthday party. I can't believe she's one already!!

Today is a distressed theme at Cupcake crafts. I really love using my little distressing tool, so I loved this challenge. Which is good since there's about 16 layers to this card!!! What was I thinking???

The colors are pink pirouette and soft suede. I used DSP from a few different packs. I used my swiss dots and floral CB folders. Both the sentiment and image are Whiff of Joy. I used a bunch of new primas on this one. The button is actually one that came with my daughter's dress as an extra!

I fit in a few challenges today

Cute Daisy May...texture
Our Creative, brown, white combo
Secret Crafter Saturday...for the girls
Charisma Cardz...flower power and brown
Everybody Art Challenge....shabby
Daring cardmakers....shabby chic
Crafty or tea
Whiff of Joy....sketch

Candy update!!!
Be sure to check out my candy post as I've added another drawing and there are now 3 companies giving away FREE digis to everyone who sends Paige a card. Paige is now out of the hospital and at her grandmother's who lives near by. So keep the cards coming to MY ADDRESS so she has bunches to come home to!!!! Please email me for my address. I'll do the drawing when comments reach 200!! That's less than 50 to go so spread the word again if you can, thanks so much!!!!!

Thanks for stoppin' by!
