CAS Cupcake – Shaped

I had fun making some different cupcake cards today. Here’s one that is shaped like a cupcake. This is going to be a quick post as it’s late and I’m headed for bed.

Today is my son’s birthday (this is not his card 😉 ). He’s 16 today and I love him more than I can say. He’s a wonderful young man. Here are a couple of songs that remind me of him. Here and Here.  I won’t go on, because I’ll cry and there are enough tears around here lately. Thank you, LORD, for Ian!

Hot Pink Birthday Candle Watercolor! Take 2 for CASology

I going to try  to repost this here because I somehow flubbed up the link-up over at CASology!

Here’s another one of my cards inspired this week’s CAS(E) this Sketch #108!!

IMG_9905edited

I made this card for my mother to give to my niece.

Here is Gayatri’s inspiring sketch for CTS…

There were so many great cards shared by the CST’s design team this week. I was especially inspired by Hannelie’s fun and colorful one:

I wanted to add some polka dots to my card.

I tried a watercolor technique and will try playing this over at CAS-ual Fridays too. The “18” is a big part of the sentiment, so I’ll play this over at Just Us Girls. CASology’s cue word is “Hot” for week 132, with the hot pink and the candles I think my card qualifies, so I’m going to play this over there as well.

I wasn’t sure about whether to add the center of the eight back in or not.

I took a photo of the card before, without the center in the 8.  I really liked that by leaving the center of the “8” out you were allowed to see more of the water coloring,

but in the end I decided that the center gave it a more clean, simple and finished look.

What do you think? With or without?
