So Glad We're Friends 18

So Glad We're Friends!

Hi There! This one is for ALL of you girls! :) Having this blog, has opened my eyes to how universal papercrafting / card making / scrapbooking is! Prior to starting Cupcake's Creations, I would browse the gallery on Splitcoast, not even knowing that crafters had blogs, sharing tidbits about their personal lives & the inspiration behind their creations. It is so fascinating to me, personally, & exciting to see that people from all around the world are interested in my creations! :) Believe it or not, before my Cyber Girl Friends, I only had 3 girlfriends locally who do any sort of papercrafting! :) I work with over 75 girls in the Operating Room & not one of them are crafty in anyway, shape or form & not even remotely interested! :( I have to say though, they sure do like to get a lil' creation made with love from me. :) Thanks so much for all of your support, comments and visits! XOXO My color choice for this card is inspired by Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #9 & the sketch layout is inspired by the Card Positioning Systems 120 sketch, CPS 120. I do not have PTI Grass Green so I used SU Old Olive instead. I just had to make another distressed flower following Dawn McVey's intructions! These little guys are sooo simple, yet I think they look quite elegant! I hope you like it! Thanks for taking the time to visit my blog and browse. Please feel free to show me some love & leave a comment! Always nice to hear from you! :) Be Sweet! Until next time...

Hi Mona, I was blog hopping and came across your lovely blog! I'm in Tucson, AZ so hello, neighbor! hehe!

I did a little snooping around and love what I see. Part of my problem is that I spend so much time ooooing and ahhhing over other people's creations and blog hopping that I don't get much crafting done myself. lol But anyway, I just wanted to stop by and say HI!

Shana said...

Gorgeous and OH SO ELEGANT!

Yes, it's funny how few of my friends are even remotely interested in this magnificent hobby! It's even more amazing how the web has made us all a close community.
Btw, I love this card to death! So amazing! I find myself wanting to tell you that this is your best ever but I know I've said that before and then you come up with something even more special!
Well, I guess I just have to say it again, THIS IS YOUR BEST CARD EVER!

PS: It's pretty cool that you have so many followers on a non-commercial blog. You should be proud of yourself! I think they follow because it's pretty easy to recognize talent!
