Charming & Cupcakes

Just as promised, I am sharing a couple of the birthday cards we made in class last Saturday. It's only Wednesday, midweek...I can make it to Friday. I feel like the Little Engine That Could, "I think I can, I think I can." Tomorrow is going to be a twelve or so hour work day/night. It sucks big time that I will miss my daughter's concert because of our Board Meeting. Oh well, let's hope she finds it in her heart to forgive me someday. Sad face. 

I am still heart-broken that so many of my favorite stamp sets are going to be retired end of next month. So, I am going to do my best to use and showcase them in my classes as much as possible. These two right here are one of my top faves. I know I will never part with them.

I distressed all the edges to give it a "worn" look.
