A Cupcake, a Mouse and Embossing

2014 August 7

Yesterday was my youngest granddaughter Abby’s birthday.  The baby turned FOUR!  I swear it seemed like yesterday that we were all huddled around the monitor awaiting Abby’s birth.

Although her party isn’t until Saturday, I wanted to create a quick card and decided to combine this card with eclectic Paperie’s August ePlay Challenge ~ Embossing


My embossing is the dry kind, as in embossing folder.  I am working on a bigger project for this months’ challenge which I should have finished in a couple of days.  Since the challenges goes all month long, no need to rush, right?  Make sure you head over to the eP blog HERE to read all about the rules and check out Bonnie’s gorgeous journal spread. 

Ok back to my card.  I dug through my basket of images already colored and found this little cutie patootie.  This little mouse with cupcake is from an old Saltbox Studio set called Basket Celebration and Celebration Compantio .  I purchased the sets in 2008 when the company was still relatively new.  I’m not sure but I think A Muse Studio bought them out or they combined, not sure which!  They have a brick and mortar store in Seattle, The A Muse Shop.


Glammed it up a bit with some sequins.  I have such a hard time picking these up and putting them where I want, even with tweezers.

Quick card, nothing fancy but I’m sure Miss Abby will like the adorable mouse with the cupcake.  She’s all about cupcakes!  That’s it for me tonight.  Almost finished the wedding photos – I’m never doing another wedding – way too much work!  And I don’t get to enjoy it, KWIM!

I’m off to dinner with the kids!  Nothing better than hugs and kisses from the grandkids!  Makes everything better, doesn’t it!
