February Cakes

Thursday, February 28, 2013
Seems like it has been a while since I posted photos of cakes, and I guess it has.  I had taken some time off from cake decorating while I was dealing with bursitis in my shoulder and a neck issue.  I am still dealing with it all, but I saw a physical therapist and am now seeing a deep tissue massage therapist.  It is a slow process, but I can very gradually see some improvement.  I am happy to be able to be back into making the cakes again.  Thanks to my hubby who makes my frosting for me!  In February I had 4 cakes to make.

So Sorry...for your loss

Saturday, February 23, 2013
One of the biggest sellers at the USED TO BE NEW Consignment Shop in Hudsonville, seems to be sympathy and get well cards.  So I thought I would get busy and make a variety of cards using the SO SORRY Stamp Set and it works perfectly with the STIPPLE BLOSSOMS Stamp Set.
Colors: Wisteria Wonder, Elegant Eggplant, Old Olive, Certainly Celery
Inspired by: Catherine Stockley
For an added special touch I stamped a flower on the front of the envelope to match the card.  When one of these theme cards are required it revolves around a sad time so why not share your sympathy in a beautiful way.

Happy Belated Birthday

Friday, February 22, 2013
I was starting to think that I needed to put some belated birthday cards in the consignment shop and I loved this fun saying from the ALL DRESSED UP Stamp Set combined with the Dress Framelits.  This card was inspired by a card that was on display at the Leadership Conference.  It also gave me a chance to play with the new colors of Core`dinations paper (Primrose).  The sample I saw did not use this fun paper, but used a shimmer paint instead, but I was liking the shabby chic look of being able to sand the edges of the card as well.
