Simple Cupcake

March 16th, 2009

Somehow I just never got around to sharing the cards we made in my February classes.  In both classes we made two cards simple-cupcake-jami-09-small.jpgthat were simplified versions of cards I had previously posted.  Plus in my Friday night class we made a Crimped Envelope Pocket Card which I promptly gave away before I had photographed it – D’oh!  (I keep thinking I’ll re-make it so I can post it, but that hasn’t happened yet.)   In my Wednesday afternoon class, instead of that pocket card we made this simple paper-pieced cupcake card with Crazy for Cupcakes and Raspberry Tart dp.  Paper-piecing is one of my favorite techniques and it’s so easy!

Big News at Taylored Expressions today!  If you love Taylor’s fantastic Key Ingredients Kits be sure to check out her new subscription service!  Get all the info here.   If you’ve never tried one of the KI kits, you might want to hop over to the store and check out the current Easter KI.  It’s super Springy and will work well with lots of different stamps you might have all season long and into the Summer as well!

If you’re here for an update on the Blind Date Story (start here if you missed the beginning and then read my last few posts in order) – well…20 years ago today it’s Thursday…and he still hasn’t called.  I’m getting more and more anxious as the weekend is approaching and I really thought I would have a date lined up.  Considering I had no interest in going out with him in the first place and considering I had come to a place in my life where I had decided not to jump through hoops for a guy anymore….well…this feeling of anticipation was just not expected!  By now I had talked to Marcia a couple of times to try to get some feedback.  Yes, she thought he DID like me and yes she thought he would call!  I think around today would have been the time when I told her to tell Bill to PLEASE encourage Curt to call me.  Bill’s response was “I don’t want to get involved!”  WHAT????  You don’t want to get involved NOW????  Are you kidding me?  I try to just calm down, focus on work (which was always super busy) and be patient for awhile longer.

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Monday!

    I can just see your face and, even if you were only thinking it, I can hear your tone of voice. . .
    I’ll be watching for the next dramatic episode. *big smile*

    Love the Birthday Card Jami. The Cupcake really stands out against the Raspberry Tart DP.
