What's "up"?


This weekend I've been working on my cards for an SCS swap hosted by Karen(stampinkaren) the great. Her Bad Santa swap was so much fun that when she decided that she would host a Bad Bunny swap how could I refuse? I bet you will never look at MFT's Flopsey the same. After many auditions and layout tryouts this is what I came up with. Notice the strategically placed cupcake(also MFT), a good solid candle, and the quotes around "up". I think this could work for a masculine birthday card. The candle is clear embossed and the frosting on the cupcake is white doodlebug glitter. I would have had these done a few days earlier if I wasn't over taken by sleep two nights in a row at 9:30 pm. That is normally unheard of for me. Normal bedtime is between 11 pm and 1 am. How nice it would be if I only needed 2 hours of sleep a day. I can just imagine how much more I could get done, but I need at least 5 to not be a grump.
