You Take the Cake!

First I would like to acknowledge the tragic loss and devastation in Haiti. We have dear friends who are Haitian and they have many family members who were still living there. Our hearts are saddended and we send our support and prayers to all affected by this disaster.

I do have a card to share today. It's a little Valentine. When I was a girl, Valentine's Day was a BIG To-Do in our house. I used to love going to the store and browsing thru all of the boxed Valentine's cards. I loved looking at all the candy too, especially the conversation hearts, because I was sure they held the secret as to which boy in my class liked me. We would hand-make the cards for our parents and each other, using construction paper, glitter, paste, yarn and crayons. Then on Valentine's Day, we would present our offerings and my dad would give us each a heart shaped box of See's candy. Now I share this tradition with my own family, only I don't have the girls make cards anymore unless they want to. So on to the card... Be sure to take a close look at the white strip of card stock...It's the new Pinking Hearts Border punch from Stampin Up! LOVE that one!

I love cupcakes and when I saw this set at Papertrey Ink, I snapped it right up.
I hope everyone has a fabulous weekend! Thanks for stopping by. Until next time...

Sweet card, Barb! Love the glitter and the little cupcake. It was fun to hear your memories, too. So cool that you've continued them.

I agree that what is going on in Haiti is so sad and tragic. I'm glad that the effort to help is so huge.

Have a great weekend!
