Sweet Thing

Happy Thursday everyone....it's just a little after midnight and I'm headed to bed. We are going to get up early before it's too hot to ride the horses. Sundance got a good report from the vet this morning....she is is good shape and just needs to fatten up a bit. Midnight is the queen of the pasture....Sundance lets her take the lead but she doesn't care much for the donkeys. She took a nip at the older male yesterday so now he gives Sundance a lot of room...LOL!!!

I ordered this adorable Penny Black stamp called Sweet Thing a few weeks ago from Stampers Dream and finally inked her up tonight. I had a little trouble with the little frosting balls on the cupcake (I tried to add a little sparkle with a glitter pen but all it did was darken the ink!!) so I covered up my mess with pearls....don't ya just love this craft!!!!! Mistakes are sooo easy to fix!!! I just love the My Favorite Things Die-namics dies, too....they are so fun and easy to use!!! I used the cloud die on the felt and the two large scallop dies for the scalloped layers. The Papertrey Ink Ocean Tides ribbon finishes it off.
