Hope you have a great week. I'm going to be really busy with work through Wednesday, and then we are taking the rest of the week off to spend the holiday weekend with my mom, who will be having a birthday later this month. I'm looking forward to having a few days to relax, eat some good food (my mom is a GREAT cook) and spend time with family.
Hope you have a great week! Thank YOU for looking!

That's about it....just wanted to post a little somethin', somethin' from the road!
Hope you're having a good week. Mine's been ridiculously busy. And the Olympics are making me stay up way too late at night. Tonight I'm going to head to bed 'early'.
Thanks for coming by!

It's a pretty simple card, although you do have to give a little thought to setting it up so that it looks good from all sides. For the inside, I cut a piece of plain white paper, just slightly smaller than the cupcake paper on the front of the card, so it wouldn't show from the front.
I played around with another inchie for this card. The frosting was made using Liquid Applique. A little bit of red Crystal Laquer for the cherry on top, some pink glitter and no-hole beads for the 'sprinkles' and your cupcake is complete and looks good enough to eat....almost... ;-) The best part about this cupcake is there is no mess to clean up in the kitchen and no extra pounds on the midsection!
Thanks for stopping by - you take the cupcake!

Our very funny neighbor, who obviously has too much time on his hands, had posted this sign at the beginning of our street, in preparation for today's runoff election in our county. We are not sure which one of us is running, or what it is we are running for (Tim assumed it was for dog catcher), but we do know that Chuck is the winner of the funniest neighbor contest.
Now, can we count on your vote?

One of the other items I was asked to use on a card for the store was the pink Heidi Swapp Chandelier Crystal that is hanging from the flower border with the sentiment attached. The sentiment was cut out with my new Stampin'UP! word punch, as were the border pieces for it. I cut the largest border piece with the punch and then cut a little off the end of the sentiment and the middle border piece to have them graduated.
Thanks for stopping by. Hope you have a happy day!

All of the flowers in the stamped image have been colored with Copic markers and then I used Copic's Spica glitter pens to add a touch of bling to them. It's impossible to get that really fine glitter to show up in a photo. I really love all the bright colors, which is not really my 'normal' style.
So if you head to a rubber stamp show in the future and Repeat Impressions has a booth there, look for this card because it is supposed to end up being displayed in the booth! Have a great weekend - I know I will since I'll be working on more cards! I've got a lot on my plate at the moment, including another card with this paper for Scrap Chic Boutique, but it's all fun!
