One-Layer Wednesday #20

Hooray, more food at the office today. I love it when it's meeting season! Today, I snagged a second breakfast of eggs and turkey sausage. And then for lunch, I grabbed a chunk of the lasagna. Yum! There was also some leftover cake from yesterday, but it got put in the conference room where there was a big meeting going on. I didn't think it'd be a smart move to waltz in there, interrupting the meeting to get some cake. Bummer.

I signed up for another craft fair for the upcoming fall/winter season. I'm excited that they will be coming up soon, but I'm also nervous that I might be in over my head. What if I don't make enough cards to sell? That'd be a huge bummer. Fortunately, I have about a month before my first event so there is still time to prep! :)

Today's One-Layer Wednesday challenge (#20) focused on 3 images and 1 sentiment. I chose some cupcakes (can't remember the last time I used them) and a coordinating "Cupcakes Forever!" stamp that I bought a while ago, but hadn't used at all. Now that I think about it, I dunno why I bought the stamp in the first place, but at the time, I thought it was cute and went very nicely with the equally cute cupcakes. I guess the card could be given to any foodie or anyone that has a sweet tooth. To make the card less bland (aka too white), I did some faux stitching around the edge and dabbed some Glossy Accents to the centers of some of the flowers.

Card Specs:
Ink: Colorbox chalk ink in Warm Green, Rose Coral, Chestnut Roan
Stamps: Studio G (all)
Punch: We R Memory Keepers Corner Chomper
Other: Brown Sharpie Ultra Fine Point marker
Other: Glossy Accents

Funny thing from work: my boss got a new computer and she tells the IT guy: "My games are gone! Can you put them back?" I guess bosses don't want to work all the time either.
