Simple Stories - Simon Said So

I was making a card today for one of my Design Team assignments using Simple Stories Baby Collection patterned papers, and it turned out so cute.  And so, since I was already making cards, and since Domi's sketch is so cute and I've been having so much fun with it, and after all - since SIMON SAID SO - I just couldn't resist.  I made another card (this one shown below) using Simple Stories patterned papers, cupcake sticker and journaling card, Recollections pearls and flowers, a PTI doily die-cut, a Making Memories button, a Kaiser rub-on, hand-made scrunched seam binding, some jute, and machine stitching.

Yes I know, this makes attempt number four.  A girl can dream, right?

Thanks so much for stopping by, and I really do hope that you're all having a great week.

Blessings to you all,



  1. That is an adorable card, love the doily and the cupcake! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving such a lovely comment. I am now following your blog and looking forward to seeing more of your work!

  2. Keep dreaming, because sometimes they come true! I love the card and the soft "candlelight" it gives!

  3. Pretty color combo! I love the stitching and the wrinkled ribbon with the doily behind the cupcake. What a great birthday card!

  4. Hi my friend! I know someday your going to win the challenge over at Simon Says, I can feel it. Your card is so beautiful...where do you get that pretty ribbon at? Have a wonderful day. Hugs, Dawn

    Just going over my comments from last summer and seen you there...I will subscribe if you have a email gadget because too much time has passed since I have been here I'm sorry. You have a fantastic weekend too!!!

  10. Ahhhh shucks, you don't have the email gadget.... just in case you don't know you can get it by going to your blogger dashboard, then click design/ layout/ then click add gadget on the right sidebar..... a window will open and I actually think subscribe by email is the very first gadget that shows up!!! This way people don't have to remember to come here but it will be in their email!! I really hope you choose to do it but if not I understand... from one crafty friend to another.
