Friends with you know what....

...Flair, of course! Unity's weekly parade of inspiration.... Today, I was inspired by Suzi Blu's Cupcake Fairy. A perfect birthday image alone but I wanted to show the very human way she created her magical cupcake and that is in an oven just like the rest of us (and a retro one, at that... but then a fairy would have a cool retro oven...) I just love sentiments that use a typewriter font like this one that came from the July '10 KOTM Happily Ever After. Then the sign on the second panel came from the same Kitchen Logic set as the oven. I suppose it's meant to be used as a tag on a gift of fresh baked goods but here it got a second life. The pointing hand and the patterned paper came from the super cool Mod-Retro stack by DCWV. (Not to mention, Stampin Up's Really Rust and Crumb Cake cardstock.) All the items highlighted above are linked to where they can be found...




Now, I just wish I had sneaked a little bird onto the card because then I could enter it in Unity's Tweet Tweet Challenge.... maybe the next card..... *smile* (Oh, and remember, the tri-shutter card tutorial can be found on the sidebar of my blog....)

Have a sweet day! To hop along with us, go to Unity's website by clicking HERE.

Cindy, how amazing are you? AMAAAZING!!! I love all these tri-fold cards you make. This one is super cute, how you used the finger pointing back to the cupcake fairy. Yet another Suzi Blu stamp I must have!
