Tueaday Throwdown

We have crazy fires raging all along the
river. It is very dry and has been very hot for the past
 week averaging about 117 degrees. It is monsoon
time and beside the humidity the monsoons bring lots
of  lightening. They say this fire was started
 by lightening.The whole sky is lit up red tonight
 When I went to look early this am it is now
 several miles long. Not sure about any
property damage.
UPDATE: fire is controlled just Lots of smoke

 So onto this weeks challenge..  Team B's  theme is
 Sweet Treats.Our sponsor is My Grafico. 
The variety of cute cupcakes made it easy to make a sweet
 card. After water coloring my cupcake I cut it out. Using 
the Spellbinder Beaded Circle I punched a star in each bead 
and foam dotted on my cupcake. 
The dp was scraps so no names. I reduced the little
cupcakes, colored and attached to the stars pennants.A little lace
and ribbon to dress it up a bit. I hope you will stop by and say
 hi to the new ladies on the team.

I adore this card, Davi. Perfect little banner with the stars and that bow is incredible! Lovely pink combo. I hope the fires don't get any closer to you than they are now. We have several fires going in the foothills around us, too, but none anywhere close to me.

I love the soft pinks in your card and the cupcakes look so much fun as a banner. Your stitching is really nice and I love the ribbons.

What a precious card, Davi. I love those little hanging pennants.

The fire looks horrible. There has been so much of that this year. But, a mix of that heat and lightning is a dangerous thing. Hope it can be under control very soon.

Unknown said...

Your card looks so yummy my friend. Such a wonderful design and that banner could be cuter. That fire looks bad.. I do hope they have it under control by now. Stay cool my friend.
