Cupcake Twofers.

 Hello everyone: I hope and pray you and your families are well, keeping each other healthy and safe.

Well, it took me a bit of thinking to come up with these cards for The Twofer Challenge but finally, here they are.

Twofer #1

I saw THIS CARD ON PINTEREST and I knew right away I needed to CASE it, it was just perfect for this challenge.
Unfortunately, as you can see from the picture, there is no name, no watermark, no blog name, or anything that I can use to give credit and thank the original creator so, if any of you recognize the original card and you know who created please let me know, I always like to give thanks to the crafters who inspire me.

This is the INSIDE.

Twofer #2

This card was inspired by a song my grandchildren loved when they were at my house watching Sesame Street, do you guys remember The Ladybug Picnic? I sure do, it's been in my head since I started creating this card, LOL!!

This is the INSIDE.

Just so you know, I fussy cut all the cupcakes😊

And this is what I used.

Card #1

All the cupcakes are from a Penny Black stamp set called "Cupcakes" 
DSP from a retired Lili of the Valley line.
The Happy Birthday sentiment is from a 2013 SU set called
"Itty Bitty Banners"

My Twofer.

I used the same cupcakes, but I created a little Picnic for my Ladybugs.
I used a 2008 Stampin' Up! set called "A Flower for All Seasons"
but I only used the stamp with the little Ladybug climbing up the
flower pot with the Sunflowers, my MISTI came in really handy to stamp
the row of Ladybugs.

The smiley sun and clouds are from a Sizzix Bundle called "Welcome Home" 
It's a little pricey now, I bought it a very long time ago, I promise you I didn't pay this much for it.
The sentiments both in front and inside are from a Power Poppy set
called "Best Day Ever".

I want to play with

Thank you for visiting me today.
Stay healthy and safe.

Geeze these cards are the cutest! I love the colors and the whimsical scenery! I don’t remember the Sesame Street Ladybug Song does anyone else? So glad you shared your take on the Pinterest Case your cards are Awesome!

It looks like you put a lot of time and effort into these two cards and they both turned out adorable! Nope, I don't remember the ladybug song even though my son always watched Sesame Street. That was a LONG time ago!

Both cards are adorable ! That Lady Bug parade is the cutest and your big triangle with all the cupcakes is awesome !

These are both sensational, Maria, and both are filled with your usual attention to the smallest details which makes them so delightful! I've enjoyed looking over all the parts of your "best day ever" ladybug picnic design! What fun! And your three-tiered cupcake plate filled with colorful cupcakes is a really delicious birthday celebration card! The triangle shape is awesome! Thank you for playing in TCC #38! Hugs, Darnell
