Wednesday’s Card: Cupcake Windows

Cupcake Windows

Hi All!

It has been quite a week so far. My daughter had a fever of 105 on Sunday night! We rushed her to the ER. I had just given her Motrin, then they gave her Tylenol. Which she promptly threw up all over the room with her latest cantalope snack because it was “yucky cherry”. What a nightmare. Turns out it was just a virus and she is fine now. I drove so fast to the hospital that night – it was so scary. And hello? There is a recall on Tylenol and Motrin??? Where have I been? Just found that out last night – you think the hospital might have mentioned it when they prescribed Tylenol and Motrin every 3 hours for her, and you can’t even buy it at the store. She is fine now – her fever finally is gone. One more day home and I think she’ll be ready for school tomorrow. Anyway…

This card required quite a bit of measuring to make sure everything lined up just right. I thought about stamping the cupcakes on the inside of the card, like the Owl Peek-a-Boo Card I made a couple of months ago, but I thought it would take up too much inside space. You have to leave room for the most important part – the message!!

I want to thank everyone who leaves me such nice comments here on my blog, on Facebook, and also at YouTube. I love knowing that someone is actually out there watching and enjoying my videos!! Until next week, enjoy!!

      Hi, if you are watching outside the U.S., some of my older videos are not viewable. 🙁 They have background music that has limited international rights.
