So I had a little time today...

I had a couple of girls over today for some cardmaking time! They were able to whip out 4 cards each this afternoon and I was able to get 2 done! WOW! I thought at first it was a no-go! Total stampers block like the whole month of December has been! BUT I got something accomplished! Here is one of the 2 cards I got done...

I used the new Filagree border from PTI as well as Stitches and Swirls.  After I attached the inside of the border, I tipped up the edges for a little dimension.  I wanted to leave the image black and white but added the red pearls to tie it all together.

Now I am off to make yet another Easy Bake dessert!  We are a full fledged kitchen at this point! The good thing about having backed Easy Bake goods around this house?  Each cupcake is probably only about 15 calories a piece!  :)  I did find a website with recipe for your own Easy Bake recipes!  I am sure that will save us money!  My dd wants to buy all of them!  Next up...chocolate chip cookies!  :)  Have a great evening!

Oh, this is so beautiful. I had my Stitches set out today, too, but did not make anything near as nice. Will be pinning this one. And, I still remember my easy bake oven--all time best toy.
