Sprinkled with fun!

     Whew!  Are you all finding that this summer seems to be especially busy.  The more I try to get ahead the further I seem to get behind.  I've been working on some cards for Art Impressions and will have several to share with you over the next few weeks.  I'm going to try to spread them out a bit.  I'm finding that spare time for commenting is in short abundance and I'm sure it is for you too so I won't drown you in posts.
     This image is called "Cupcake BFF's".  The new line of BFF characters is so much fun.  The cards I'm making are supposed to be used for displays at the craft shows so I'm not embellishing them very heavily since they need to be travel/packing friendly.  I found some cute candle stickers to add a little extra on this card.
