Celebrate Today!

Why not? Everyday is a gift! Some of you know that I  love cupcakes. But since I'm not eating them as much as I used to, I decided to pull out this stamp set from Papertrey Ink and make a card. I've been in this sunny yellow mood, so I went with it. All supplies are from PTI.

I've always admired the look of lined envelopes, but for me it was so time consuming. That is until Nichole Heady over at Papertrey Ink, came up with an envelope liner die that can be used in the Cuttlebug! She is BRILLIANT!!  Now, lining my envelopes is easy!

I wanted to show you a close up of the cupcake...isn't it just so cute? Makes me want a real one! I covered the stamped image with Dazzling Diamonds from SU!  The PTI color palette I used is: Stampers White, Lemon Tart and Spring Moss. I stamped the cupcake with CTHM's black ink...the BEST black ink in my opinion. ;-) You can't really get the full effect of all that glittery goodness, but trust me, it is sparkling like jewels.

Anyone have any special plans for the weekend? Anyone read any good books lately? Hopefully, I can get some time in my Studio to create. I need to clean and get my Autumn decorations out. I recently received my Gold Canyon order with lots of yummy fall scented candles and beautiful accessories. I'll take pics like I always do and share them with all of you. Thank you for visiting The Buzz today! Have a wonderful weekend!

Love the falling leaves.

Oh Barb, your cupcake is delicious! I love the lining on the envelope, too.
Savoring this type of gorgeous cupcake lasts way longer than eating one, right?

I can't wait to see your decor pictures! Looks like the blog is already dressed for fall with those fun falling leaves. *Ü*

Have a wonderful weekend!
