Friend, Have I been busy!

I have been so busy with something lately. I don't have much to show for it as far as cards or experiments. Just doing my mommy job. Well, I've been deeply absorbed by my children lately. I absolutely love them in spring. I don't know if its me or the weather or the upcoming birthdays next month, but they are just something to absorb. I can't get enough of them!

I did manage to eek out some more on my sneak peek project. I have a deadline to complete it this month. I'll show you the project sometime in June after I give the gift away.

I also made some Ice Cream Cone Cupcakes to celebrate an early birthday for my daughter in her preschool class. They were quite fun. Here's a picture.

I had jelly beans and sprinkles for the classmates to put on top of the frosting and then they devoured what they could. Just 45 minutes prior they ate Krispy Kreme doughnuts with sprinkles on top for another summer birthday celebration. Those little tummy's just can't hold all that and an ice cream cone cupcake too! I designed the stand so that they wouldn't have to hold the cone while decorating it. I might put that template out on splitcoast stampers if I get a spare moment. I scrounged up some smiley face stickers to give them so they could decorate their stands before the cones where inserted. Wouldn't you know it. I made these special stand and my daughter wanted one just like the rest of the classmates.

As far as cards, I threw together one more Mother's Day card to send to my sister-in-law that went with the butterfly themed ones here.

I also made a quick moment to make a Mojo card for contest week. I used Verve's Wishful Elegance stamp set.

Oh how exciting! I just hopped over to shopverve dot com and great news! There is a release coming up THIS FRIDAY! I'll have to check my schedule and see how to fit it in!
