Here are the cards for my twin granddaughters’ birthday this year.


The icing on the cupcakes was popped up with foam tape for some depth and dimension.


A strip of the designer paper was added on the inside, too.


And of course their favorite part of the card… the money!  lol


Since they live so far away its hard to know exactly what they want/need.  But this year I had some cupcakes delivered to them that I ordered from a local bakery there.  One can always use cupcakes!

  8. Oh those precious little girls! I remember when they were all born, and just look how much they’ve grown up! What a fun picture of them enjoying their treats! Wonderful cards too, and I love the wavy panels. The sentiment reminds me of a popular song I’ve been hearing on the radio lately “Money can’t buy everything – but it can buy me a boat!” LOL Too funny!
