The Cutting Cafe - It's a Cupcake Kind of Day

One of my all time favorite sets stamp sets from The Cutting Cafe has got to be All About Cupcakes.

I LOVE, love this set!  Maybe because it's got 49 images (yep, I said 49!), or maybe it's the cool cake stands, or the awesome sentiments or maybe, just maybe, it's all those yummy cupcakes!  Whatever it is, I find myself pulling these images out of my computer all the time.

I found this sweet little pincushion pattern (Just Desserts) online.  Be kind, this is my first one and I must have been tense when I was doing the stitching because some of them are a bit tight...as in uptight!

At any rate, I just had to make a sweet card to go with it.  I think this would be a sweet little gift for any  big or little girl occasion...birthday, get well or just "thinking of you".  How about when your little sweetheart begins her first stitching project?

Would love to know what you think!  Thanks for stopping by the playground!!

This is for the Dutch Dare Card Challenge - Anything Goes ddcc #83

Oh Charlene, that pin cushion!!! I don't think I could bring myself to stick a pin into something so cute!!!

And I love how cute your card is, too--I may have to try making one of those ribbon thingies-such a cool way to "mat" your image!!!

There are so many aspects of this project that I admire -- the handmade pin cushion (adorable AND useful), the sweet card, and that ribbon treatment. Wonderful!!
