Happy Decoration Day! featuring Creative Cafe' Kit of the Month

Hi Everyone!  Hope you're all getting in sometime to do what you want to do today- as we surround ourselves with family and friends let's also remember those men and women who have died in the service of their country. Here's an added piece of trivia!  Did you know that Memorial Day has also been known as 'Decoration' Day?  So how appropriate is it that I share a card today that features a decorated  cake!

 I really love how this "sweet" card turned out - and even more how simple it was!  With the wonderful cuts and score of this card it easily showcases your image and looks marvelous!  To see the full post and tutorial head over to my post at the Rubber Cafe' blog here!

May Kit of the Month- Ice Cream truck party favor & Invitation

Hi Everyone!  Today I'm sharing a couple of projects featuring the May Creative Cafe' kit How Sweet it Is! - and the add-on stamp set Always Room for Ice Cream.    I created a gatefold type card, that would work perfectly as a party invitation and for fun I paired with it a party favor in the shape of a truck.  I first found this free template from Clear and Simple stamp site.  But I've tweeked the size as I wanted my truck longer and added a base so I could easily stick lots of goodies in side.

 Here's a closer look at the invitation- as it looks closed with the decorated belly band wrapped around.
