Last school year, my son was in a production of Once Upon A Mattress. Afterward, for the kids’ cast party, his Drama coach asked for a cake for the occasion. I made a cake that looked like the bed in the play. This was the furthest I could be from cardmaking!
Thanks for stopping by! Enjoy your 2014!

Marvelous group of cards Yvonne! My favorites are the snowman, the steampunk birthday and that cute robot and sentiment combo. What a fun cake too. I find it liberating to sometimes venture out into other creative things and have tried many at least once or twice. Best wishes for a a happy, healthy, and creative 2014!
