I love cake! (and it shows) I also love birthdays (though I STINK at getting cards out on time). And to me, one of the best parts of birthdays is cake.

Sadly my family does not share my feelings on this. My son usually chooses a pan of brownies or a BIG cookie for his birthday *cake* and my older daugher chooses pie. My in-laws love this--as they do not like cake either. Thankfully, my little daugher is still hooked on tradition and chooses cake (always chocolate with pink icing) for her birthday.

I love this image and sentiment from Eat Cake Graphics! The dog is even named *Cupcake*!! How cute is that!!?!!

The little cupcake is from a clear $ set my mom picked up at Michaels for me. It has a cherry on top that is solid and not outlined--so when you ink up the cupcake in black as an outline--you get a black cherry. Now, don't get me wrong, I love black cherries (YUMMY!) but not BLACK cherries. YKWIM???? So when I use this stamp, I think there will always be an embellishment of some sort on top!

  • Stamps: Cupcake the dog and *Did Someone Say Cake!?!* from Eat Cake Graphics; cupcake from Studio G
  • Papers: Polka dotted paper from Paper Studio and alpha paper from ki Memories; White, black and red cardstock;
  • Ink: StazOn Jet Black; Brilliance Graphite
  • Accessories: Ribbon, Clear Ep, Glassy Glaze, Diamond Stickles, Jewels, Prismacolor pencils

Have a great day--and hopefuly a bit of cake along the way!!
