Yucky & Yummy!!!

So, first the bad news . . . my 5 yr. old, Parker, just came back from an emergency Dr. visit this morning with his 1st ear infection - yuck! - needless to say, he is not a happy camper :( This week has just been one thing after another, which is unusual since my kids are generally healthy (knock on wood) especially since we've moved South. Please say a prayer, as I hate to see them not feeling their best!
Now the good news, between kisses,cuddles & medicine doses, I managed to make a couple of cute thank you cards for my mom & mom-in-law, who both chipped in for a new playset for my boys! These cards were pretty simple to make and turned out so sparkly & cute, I thought I'd share them with y'all.

The pretty designer paper is from DCWV and the cupcakes were cut freehand from some textured cardstock. I decorated them with some "Iced Grapefruit" Sparkle Fibers, a giant button "cherry" from Wal-mart and chipboard hearts dunked in coarse crystal glitter by Martha Stewart.

The first 1/2 of the sentiment - "You're so" - is by Inkadinkado it's stamped & heat embossed and the "sweet" part is diecut with my Cricut and, again, dunked in glitter by MS, this time the fine crystal. The plaid ribbon is from American Crafts and the heart ribbon, I have no clue! LOL

Mmmmmm! Makes you wanna take a bite doesn't it??? I hope they love 'em!

I'd love to hear what you think . . . let me know!

  1. They turned out really cute. You really put some extra effort into them to make them sparkle. They will love them, and bet the boys will love the playset too :) I hope Parker feels better soon!!

  2. Hope everyone gets well soon. VERY nice cards - as always.

  3. Hi Sonya, I am sorry to hear your little one has an ear infection as they can be son Thijs who is also 5 ended up with ear tubes because of the ear infections being so bad, now his ears are fine and no more ear infections. I could swap stories with you though as now he has new illnesses!!! It can drain you of all energy so my thoughts are with you and hope that your son gets better real soon.
