Birthday Sundaes

This week is the first blog hop over at Birthday Sundaes to introduce new DT members and say goodbye to some. The theme is Cakes and Cupcakes!!! Don't forget to put a birthday greeting on the front of the card and it also has to be a new creation. The hop is lasting all week and you need to visit each stop and leave a comment and enter a card to be in the running for the grand prize. I hopped earlier in the week and I'm telling ya that all of the cards are just awesome!!! I used the cupcake on page 60 from the Straight From The Nest cartridge for my card. I cut 2 of the frosting pieces so I could pop one up. I also used the Cuttlebug embossing folder Polka Dots and embossed the frosting pieces. I used Glossy Accents on the cherries. The cupcake was cut from scraps from my scrap bin. The bottom designer paper is from Little Yellow Bicycle-Blue Bubbles. The top designer paper is a digi paper. My Super Sweet Friend Vivi (whom just happens to be a Birthday Sundae DT member) sent me. Visit her blog and check out the awesomeness that she creates!!! You can also visit Paper Craft Inspirations and check out the other free downloadable papers they have. They have 4 new designs every month. The piece I used is called Teatime Treats-Doily Delights. It printed on half of the paper and the other half has the cutest tags to cut out and use. Really great digi downloads and they are free!!! Thank You Vivi for sending these to me and telling me about this site!!!!!!! The buttons I used are from my stash and I threaded them with Blossom Twine from The Twinery. The sentiment is from a wooden stamp. Now you have until Saturday August 6th, 11:59 EST to check out the hop and to link a card. So come join the fun! You just might win some blog candy! Hope ya'll like my card!!! :)
