Cupcake Riley

ETA: I'm so honored and excited to have won last week's Farm Fresh Friday! I just love The Greeting Farm! Here is my winning card.

I love embellishments and it's hard for me not to pile them on. But I really wanted to show off the lovely paper, so this is a pretty simple card for me. I wish I could just bake some cookies at home and be cozy! :)

Paper: Basic Grey Indian Summer
Stamps: Riley and Company, sentiment is Amuse
Nestabilites, Copics, Rhinestones, and CTMH Ribbon

Here is a picture of us in our Civil War gear. Our first Christmas dating, Brent took me to Build-a-Bear and we made college teddies! :) These bears have survived the dorms, Fraternity and Sorority houses, a trip to Denver, back to Seattle, and now nested in our sweet home. Though we've only been married a year, we've been a couple for more than 9 years. People always ask how did a Beaver and a Duck get married, lol. But we love our rivalry and it's a fun tradition for us.


Everyone have a fabulous Friday! It's almost the weekend!

  23. Congrats on Farm Fresh and for being so happily together despite the interspecies difficulties it must pose--one being a bear and one a duck, that is. :) I always enjoy hearing how much you so clearly love your spouse. It makes me believe in true love. :)
