World Card Making Day

As most of you know, Saturday was National Card-Making Day. Here's some of what I got done. Other projects will be under separate posts...

The new HOT thing is partially embossed cards using the Cuttlebug. I'm not a CTMH purist but I do try to find a way to replicate something using as much product as I can...simply because I LOVE CTMH PRODUCT!!! Here are a couple of cards using just my stylus and cutter...

My baby is turning ONE....

EDIT....Here are some more pictures of my baby's birthday party.

The goodie bags were made using Topiary, Black and White Daisy Cardstock cut into various size circles then adhered to the front of a white paper lunch bag. The one with the pink bow is for my niece, CJW (she was the only girl in attendance).

This is a picture of the cake...or cupcakes...depending on how you look at it. I will say that this was the easiest thing EVER. We just pulled apart the cupcakes, put them on a plate with ice cream and that was it. It's the neatest thing since sliced bread (as Miss SG would say)...

This is his high chair before it got green icing all over it....the party hats were plain so I added the frog and a name on each one...again, my niece's frog had a pink bow in her hair (as you can see by the goodie bags).

And, is TK not liking his hat, us singing happy birthday to him (after the hat was removed so I could get a good picture) and him with green icing all over his face.

Original Post....9/25
Here is the invitation for TK's 1st Birthday Party...the new hottest thing is cupcake cakes so his cake is going to be in the shpe of a frog but be cupcakes instead of sheet cake. I'll take pictures of it on Saturday (hopefully) and post it as an 'edit' to this post.
