Rhinestone Cupcake

Here is another cupcake card that I made. The card with the opening was given to me from Dixie my stampin up demo and so was the background paper, the verse happy birthday also. these rhinestones are self-stick. the ink used is from stampin up. I wanted some kind of frame around the opening so i put the rhinestones there. Like to order from dixie any stampin up products, just go to my links and click on her link there.


These butterflies was given to me from debra from gingerwood. I just had to make a card from these as i never seen anything like these before. i think these are just something. it makes them 3-D if you ask me.

Sweet Cupcake

OFF Topic

This is off topic for here but I just had to say this on here abou it as i know I have a few friends who care. I just heard from sister and brother that my mom fell and she broke her hip and now she has to have surgery on thursday. my mom is tough with lots of health problems but I know with heavenly father help and guidence he will take care of her and give her the strength she needs to get thru this as she has gotten thru everyother hopital visit she has been in. since my died in 2005 that is what is hard for her because he is no longer here for her. this is her second surgery that she had in her life but I know and pray heavenly father will help. I am wooried sitting here as I get ready for inspection where we live but there is nothing I can do as i need to get this done. so please think of my mom and pray for her.
