Birthday cupcake

I haven't had any mojo since the time change on Sunday. I love spring forward and the warmer weather we have been having but the kids don't want to sleep when it's light out and we have been playing A LOT outside all day and by the time I get them all to bed I am just about ready to fall asleep myself!

I forced myself to go down to my craft space last night and at least attempt something. I still wasn't feeling much mojo but I needed a birthday card for my son (boy cards are always challenging for me) and I decided to use the sketch from Unity's {be inspired} challenge as a jumping off point.



I used the cupcake and sentiment from Unity's March KOTM and threw together a quick card coloring the cupcake in with my copics.

 I cut it out and popped it up on some coordinating papers and added a #4.
Since it's Friday I am linking up with Friends with Flair over on Unity's blog. Always lots of wonderful inspiration there and hopefully just what I need to get my mojo back!

We are suppose to hit 60 today so we are very excited. It's hard to believe it was below 0 last Friday. We have already pulled out the sidewalk chalk, scooters, wagon, bubbles, and running shoes and have been having a blast! Enjoy your weekend everyone!

Hugs,

Crystal

I do so agree. The temp swing has been insane. My body is not reacting well. That is one gorgeous card!

Super cute card. I love how you added the number to personalize it. Thank you for sharing.

This turned out great! Love how you stamped the happy birthday along the bottom so you'd have a whole phrase in the middle. That seems simple, but I'm not sure I would have thought of doing it. lol... Wonderful card and sweet yummy image!!!
Saw you on Unity FWF!!!
