Happy Cinnamon Bun

Happy Cinnamon Bun

Hi All!

Isn’t this cinnamon bun so totally adorable? I love him. As you know, today is the last card of the year for me. I wanted to create something fun and happy. This is it. And it’s my sentiment for all of you.

I used gloss accents on the icing, and I made it purposefully messy so it looked more like real icing. Here is a close-up:

    Hi Darlene! Well, it looks like I’m going to be the first one again to write my comment (smile). Of course that’s because your video is released about 10pm in Australia and a good way to wind up the day. I’ll miss your regular creative inspirations but am happy for you that a new chapter of your life is underway. This card was a cutie and sure to please any recipient. You made it look good enough to eat too. Before I close, here’s wishing you a blessed Christmas surrounded by the people you love the most! Here’s also wishing a fond farewell to the Live Love Cards Community as we’ve known it over the past 4 years. I’ve come a long way in my card-making skills during this time, thanks to you! So I look forward to your next video whenever you have the time and inclination to make one! Take care in the meantime!😘

    dang Connie is good!
    Miss you already Darlene! Have a Joyous Christmas and here’s to a brave New Year with adventures! Best to you and those you love, may you be showered with all the peace and love you richly deserve <3
    You've helped me in many more ways than you will know. Some I shared with you privately; thank you is insufficient. I will greatly miss you, but as I look on your site and see your absence, I will smile imagining you chasing dreams. Very brave of you! Look forward to your next video when it is time 🙂

    I enjoyed the video. Looking forward to seeing you when you are up to a new video. If you are never up to a new one, that is fine. I have enjoyed the many years of watching you create videos and sharing your love of creativity. Blessings! 🙂

    What an adorable card Darlene! I love the little cinnamon bun, he is looking mighty tasty as well! I know you are on a new adventure and I sure do wish you all the best on it-I know you will do well!!!! Sending much love and blessings to you and your family this Christmas. You will be missed, even though I don’t comment much, I always watch. But it will give us something to look forward to when you have the time and can post.
    Blessings, prayers and hugs,

    I am really going to miss you. I didn’t realize how much until I kept looking for your posts! I’m happy to hear you returned to school and (in spite of finals) you are enjoying it. Good for you!!!

    A while ago, I sent in a card to you for a young girl who was battling cancer. Do you know how she is doing??

    I will email you privately about my previous experiences similar to yours.

    God bless you, my friend, because I feel like you are one. One more thing……have a very merry and very blessed Christmas, as we celebrate the birth of our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ.
