Peace, Love and Cupcakes!

Good Morning Everyone,

Things here have been a little bit busy. We had a little unfortunate accident in the family - but everyone is okay now and recovering... times like these you are reminded about the preciousness of life. I have been a little busy taking care of some family matters... but am hoping for more play time this week :) Hope you all had a lovely Easter... speaking of which how about a Christmas card!!

(did you like the transition??? lol!!) Every monday my Christmas Stampin' All Year Long comes together to create a Christmas card - so that we can actually be ahead of the game with our holidy cards before the Christams holiday insanity. This week's challenge was a sketch challenge - and here is my take on the sketch:

Sorry for being a little MIA recently... haven't had much time to stamp - just so much family and health issues... so this feels great to get some card therapy in... and so this is a super quick card... I timed it at 23 minutes :). I loved using the Christmas Key Ingredients Kit from Taylored Expressions for this little holiday cupcake card... i love these christmas papers... and I of course love this little cupcake with the sweet holly trimming at the top.

Card Details:
Paper: Christmas Key Ingredients kit from Taylored Expressions
Ink: Chocolate Chip from Stampin Up!
Stamps Season's Sweetings Stamp set from Taylored Expressions
Accessories: Corner Rounder, silver marker, liquid pearls for the cherry, 1 3/4 circle punch from Stampin Up!
Shows Watched: 30Rock on Hulu

Hope you will check out the Christams Stampin All Year Blog and join in on the fun!!! I am psyched each week to knock down another Christams card!!! Woot!!!

Wishing all of you a wonderful Happy Happy new week!
Ciao for now
Sankari :)
