Cupcakes and Christmas Trees

Good Morning!
Are you all ready for a new week?!
Four more sleeps and Brian and I will be heading to Banff!! I'm really looking forward to our weekend getaway :)
Before the Nascar race started yesterday I had time to make a card for Taylor's Cupcake sketch #42. These curvy rectangle nesties worked so well with her sketch too!!
Stamps: Crazy for Cupcakes; Cardstock: Regal Rose, WW and Georgia Peach DP; Inks: Black, Regal Rose, Old Olive, So Saffron, Going Gray; Accessories: Curvy Rectangle Nesties, Blender Pen, Heidi Swapp Ghost Flower, Flower Fusion, White Brad, Dimensionals
Sunday's bring the Featured Stamper on SCS. This week it was Kendra and I chose to CASE this card of hers. I loved the tree theme so I decided to keep the theme and layout. I used different stamps, designer papers and embellishments. This is a SU! only card.
Stamps: Merry & Bright; Cardstock: Kiwi Kiss, WW and Frosty Days DP; Inks: Black, Kiwi, Olive; Accessories: Blender Pen, Kiwi Ribbon, Silver Elastic Cord, Dimensionals
Thanks for stopping by today!

Thos cupcakes are looking very yummy Dawn! I am loving these new Nestie's! Guess I must have them, right? He he! The three trees are so hip and cool! Great look! Oh how I love going up to Banff when I have visited my DD and grand babies in Calgary. I have only been three times, but each time I loved it! There is a fancy Sunday brunch at at beautful hotel up there looking into the amazing forest. Can't recall the name of the hotel but it is grand!
Have fun and maybe you can do a sleigh ride! Deb
