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.

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 cupcakes­čśŐ




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".
