TECC48: Offbeat Cuppie Cake

Here is yet another offbeat cuppie because I love them with this yummy paper pad by Basic Grey! My card is pretty straight-forward so I don't have much to say about it other than I decided to finally do a fun banner for my sentiment that is popped up for dimension. I punched the circle with 1-inch punch & smooshed it in a versamark pad & embossed with iridescent ice embossing powder. I chose to leave cuppie's cake white because it's Buttercream frosting & has chocolate icing accents (courtesy of cinnamon stickles). FUN!

Today is my middle sister's birthday, the one I made the Butterfly gift for (she opened it on Sunday, neither of us can wait to give/get gifts so we usually do it early) and she loved it! I also told her there were quite a few ladies who wished I was their sister so they could get something as nice. That made her feel good. She then went on to tell me how much she boasts about how creative I am, and how much of a great cook our other sister is and that she doesn't really do anything, well except make people laugh and well, that made us laugh! But, it's not true, shortly after all the gifts were done we started chatting about makeup (we've all recently gotten into using bare minerals, it's really nice) and she was going on & on about all of it. Then I had to stop her and say, Deana you said you're don't really do anything special but you do, you really know your makeup and you're good at that. She said, oh yea. She would spend hours getting dolled up, and always knew exactly how to put her makeup on to look smashing and did it many times for us like special occasions. In fact for our oldest sister's wedding we didn't have to pay someone to do her makeup because Deana did it, in fact she did everyone's that morning! Have a happy birthday Deana - we love & miss you!!
