So Good You could Almost Eat It!

Have you missed me?  

I know I haven't posted much in the last 2 weeks since my Grandpa's passing and the little get-away I was at over the weekend. 

I've spent the last 4 days with the girls from the Stamp Shack for a stamping weekend at the Potawatomi Inn in Indiana.  Basically, it's a 4 day crop called Shackapolooza!  This is our 3rd consecutive year doing this.  We stay at a beautiful hotel in a State Park and rent out one of their conference rooms as our crop room for the weekend! It was tons of fun! There's nothing like getting the girls together, stamping, laughing and snacking for 4 whole days!  

Over the entire weekend I learned several new techniques and created about 13 cards!  This is a huge success for me.  Usually I am too busy running my mouth and looking at what everyone else is doing rather than concentrating on my own projects.  However, I was bound and determined to make this year different and I really got a lot done!

One of the cards I made/played with is this Birthday card.
The cake, candle and inside sentiment are all by DRS Designs.  This is also the first time I've ever created an easel card.  I'm not too sure I like the easel part of this card, but I do love the way that cake looks!

It's almost good enough to eat! Doesn't the frosting look real? I created it using white Liquid Applique and real Betty Crocker Sprinkles!

Hope you have a great Monday. Thanks for stopping by!
