Hello Cupcake

Morning friends!

I had a friend that had her birthday over the weekend but between extra curricular activities for all the kiddies and errands; and, and, and, lol, I just didn't get around to making her anything until yesterday.  Once the girls got on the bus yesterday, Mommy ran faster then you could say cardstock into her crafty space and whipped up a card and a matching little mini album for her :)

I based the card on the current Wednesday Stamp Club sketch from My Favorite Things on SCS.  I know, I've been doing a lot with their sketches and stamps.  I just really love their fun sketches and adorable stamps, but I promise I have some other things I've worked on that I'll be able to post soon :) 

So here is the current sketch for this past week which luckily I managed to play along with just in the nick of time.

 And here is my card using the MFT Pure Innocence stamp called Hello Cupcake:

Isn't she precious?  I LOVE her.  I colored her with my Copics on some Copic Xpress It paper and then fussy cut her and propped her on her mat.  The sentiment is from Studio G.  Since I really didn't have an embellie that looked right to me for this card, I made the flower by cutting out different sized circles, distressing them with my Tim Holtz distress tool, and then embossing them with my Cuttlebug Swiss Dots folder.  Voila, perfectly matching flower :)  Which if you know me, its all about matching :)  The papers are from DCWV The Linen Closet Collection and of course, my favorite at the mo, Recollections The Neapolitan Collection *yum*.

Here are some pics of the mini album I created for my friend as well.  The album was from Close to My Heart, was pre-cut, and also included an clear acetate page.  I used most of the scraps from the card I made which was perfect way to get rid of them!

Here is the front cover of the album.  Another sentiment from Studio G.  I made the felt rose myself.  I don't have a rolled rose die but figured out from Pinterest how to do one without one!  Yay :)

And the whole set, card and album together!  Cute, right?

Thanks for stopping by today and hope you have a wonderful day ahead of you !
