A CAS birhday card for Kim!


Forgive me for my late posting, but we are having a lot of rain (thundering and lighting) so my internet is wacky.  Nevertheless, I carry on!  I am popping in to wish one of my crafting buddies, Mz. Kim of, the happiest birthday evah!!  Me and my other crafting buddy, Mz. Sassy (a.k.a. Joann) over at, decided to make Kim a monochromatic and CAS card. 

I chose to do a CAS card.  Okay, I must say that I have created several cards over my lifetime for many different people; however I have never been so intimidated about creating a card.  If you check out Kim's blog you will know why.  This woman doesn't do simple, she does extravangant, she does eloquent, she does elaborate, but never simple (even when she tries - lol).  So, I still haven't decided whether I will mail her this card or not. lol 

Here's my birthday card for Kim...

Kim's simple card
I used a 6x6 peach cardstock base and layered on some Kraft paper.  I then cut some SU dp and glued a lace border on it using a SU punch.  I cut the sentiment out on my Cameo as well as the cupcake.  I colored the cupcake using Copics.  Walah!  Simple card is born.  I could have made it even more simple, but had to keep the recipient in mind. (tehehehe)

Well, Kim, my friend, I hope that you have a blessed bday.  May our heavenly Father above open the windows of Heaven and pour out so many blessings that you can hardly contain them all.

Love ya,


  1. Candy!
