On The Menu

First and foremost, I want to admit right up front that the inspiration for this card was not completely my own.  However, I searched diligently to find the original artist, and cannot find her card.  Please know that I aways try to give credit where credit is due.  So, if I learn her name, I will certainly post it.  But anyway, she had made a similar card that I saw a month or two ago that really inspired me to make this sweet little Birthday card.  I fell SO in love with the sweet little cakes image from Robyn's Fetish (this week's generous sponsor at Word Art Wednesday), and this sweet little "Menu" ATC card from V's Sweet Ideas who is an upcoming sponsor at Word Art Wednesday.  When I saw these sweet little ATC cards, I just had to order them.  They come in a package of adorable little assortment of cards that make the perfect accents (as you can see) and Vanessa (of V's Sweet Ideas) has VERY reasonable shipping rates.  You might want to check out her darling little store, as well as Robyn's Fetish shop who, by the way, is having a GREAT sale right now.  It's a great time to stock up on their darling images.  Just look at what I made with the sweet combination of a darling Robyn's Fetish image and the darling V's Sweet Ideas ATC Menu card.  Does anyone else think this is as cute as I do?  LOL
 
 
Here are the challenge blogs I found where I could share my sweet little card.  I'm excited to participate in the following:

Thanks again for stopping by to take a quick peek at my little card and say hello.  If you missed my scripture card for this week, it is in the previous post.  I really do hope that you will all stop by and play along with us this week at Word Art Wednesday where you are always welcome to share any of the art you are making.  We always have an "Anything Goes" theme as long as it is uplifting/encouraging.  We just love having new participants, and are so grateful for the faithful crafters who visit us each week.  We look forward to seeing YOUR ART shared this week.  May God bless you as you craft.
 
Be blessed,
 
Karen
