Rain, rain, go away. I certainly wish it would quit raining here....it's been raining for a week and we live in a semi desert climate? Go figure.
Today's share is a Birthday card for Lloyd's Dad.
I used the shaving cream technique to make the tops of the cupcakes. This is an easy technique and fun to do. Maybe a bit messy, but fun all the same. It's a great technique to use your ink refills and make colours and patterns which give added interest to the design.
It's "like a box of chocolates, you just never know what you are going to get". It was Forrest Gump who coined the phrase or something like it.

Over next several weeks, watch for an announcement on my blog of a new program that I am starting. It will be of interest to those who have little time to craft or want to get started crafting. If you live in small town Canada and don't have access to a Stampin' Up! demonstrator, this will be for you.
Until next time....
