Happy Tuesday! Today I am participating in a virtual birthday party for Karen Baker!!

Erin emailed a few weeks ago asking if I would like to participate. What a great idea, right?

Karen... I am glad to have met you through this hobby we both love so much! I am glad to call you my friend! I hope you have a wonderful birthday!!

I do have one confession to make! I had planned to bring a cupcake/cupcake topper with my card to this party! However... after I took my picture... I went ahead and ate the cupcake icing! hmmmm... turns out my photos weren't going to work. So... I should have listened to that little voice in my head telling me not to eat the icing yet. God tries to help me out and I don't always do a good job of listening.

Instead... I found these cool little cupcakes on Pinterest... here!! If I was actually coming to your birthday party... I would so make these! :) 

Now... go visit Karen and wish her a Happy Birthday! :)

Here is a list of the party goers if you want to check them out! Thanks for visiting! Peace and Love!

Your card is lovely! A perfect creation in Karen's honor! And I LOVE those cupcakes in the jar- but not as much as I love that you ate the frosting off of the originals!! hee!!!

Your story made me giggle! The icing is truly irresistible, isn't it? Love the cupcakes in a jar you found, though--those would be great for a party!

Bananastamper said...

Oh, I likey your card! Fabulous! Those cupcakes look fabulous as well!

Karen B. said...

So we had a German Chocolate Cake tonight for my birthday and I thought the boys would eat up the frosting and gooey stuff on top. I was so wrong, they didn't like it! Learned my lesson, because now I have to have all this self control NOT to eat all of it myself! Thank you so much for the virtual birthday card. It is so bright and cheery and perfectly clean and simple. I'm so proud to call you a friend Kelley, thank you for being there to cheer me on, offer advice and just overall listen.
