Cupcakes are Muffins ? !

At my job we celebrate birthdays once each quarter.  This time we had a bunch of cupcakes along with cake and some other goodies.  We tried to rationalize eating all the sweets . . . but ate them anyway.  That's when I remembered this sentiment stamp from Riley and Company - so much fun!  I just had to make a card for an upcoming birthday.

I am putting this in the following challenges:

Shopping Our Stash I love the title of this challenge "Stickle Me Elmo" . I really shopped my stash, and used a very old jar of "sprinkles" - glitter - not edible! I sprinkled them on top of some Alene's snow paste (used as "icing" ). 

Happy Little Stamper - The dies are from Paper Trey Ink -- 
And I'm also putting this into Seize the Birthday

As always, thanks so much for taking a look.  Hope you are having a good day.

W T Fifty?

A co-worker is turning 50 next month - this is for her.

The stamps are from CAS-UAL Fridays - embossed in gold and black.  The pink numbers are a stencil from The Crafter's Workshop - sponged with distress spun sugar to go from dark on top to fade to the bottom.  
I had 2 hours to do this and get on to my blog to qualify for CAS Colours & Sketches

And Paper Craft Crew Challenge

This was one of the fastest cards I've ever made. To be honest, there were several failed attempts, before I got it the way I wanted.  :) 
All for now -- need to go get dinner and ready for work tomorrow.
Hope you are having a good day.
