Cupcake Thank You's

Happy 5th of July!!!  Hope you had a wonderful holiday weekend! We sure did. I'm actually sitting out on my patio with my laptop and going to try and get a week's worth of posts done!!!!

Thank you to those who wished me well and sent me notes to ask how I was feeling.  I am feeling better - thankfully, but still waiting on a few blood tests to come back.  I got a B-12 shot on Friday and will be getting more the next few weeks, so hopefully those will help too!

Starting next week, I'll get back to working out too! I miss sweating!

Anyways..........on to the cards!! My cousin Carl is a fabulous baker!  He lives in DC and he runs an annual bake sale at his office desk to raise money for Broadway Cares/Equity Fights AIDS. He makes all sorts of items, from brownies, blondies, pound cakes, etc.  I believe he raised just about $700.00 this year.  We ordered his brownies and blondies. YUMMY!!!

To thank those who ordered from him, he asked me to make him some Thank You cards.  I made him 12 cards - six of each style below:



Since I had to make 12, we kept the designs pretty simple.  Oh, did I mention my cousin loves the color purple??  Could you have guessed that yourself?

Well, I hope you have a wonderful week...........and a special Happy Birthday shout out to Carol!!!

Thanks for your visit!

Glad you are feeling a bit better and hope the B12 works. Hey if you like to sweat and can't work out come on down, with the temps at 100 everyday you sweat just sitting outside :) Love your cards, just so "sweet"! Did you cut those little cupcakes out on the second one? If you did, wow you have patience my friend. Feel better and continue to rest.

Your cards are simply yummy! Simple, yet really cute. Your cousin and the recipients are sure to love them.
