Here's a really cool card I made using one of the Inky Antics HoneyPOP birthday sets. I figured out how to mount the honeycomb on the outside using magnets on one side so it can be enjoyed and displayed with the cupcake open but can still go into a regular envelope.
Also I have a special request to make. Inky Antics is having a special contest on Facebook this month, giving away $25 worth of Inky credits to the HoneyPOP card that gets the most likes, so if you have a Facebook account and like the HoneyPOP cards I have made, pleasehop over there (https://www.facebook.com/#!/pages/Inky-Antics/147604798605457) and like my cards so I can win some more stamps.
As always, click on the image if you are interesting in reading the full directions.
Here's the first of two new Easter cards I created using Inky Antics' new HoneyPOP stamp sets. This one doesn't use the HoneyPOP paper but the next one does. I'm still working on the post and web page for the other card that does use the new HoneyPOP paper. Stay tuned, I hope to post it tomorrow night but Easter in nearing so I thought I would get what is done out tonight.
Here's another Easter card using the same cross stamp as my last Easter card post as well as a background stamp from the same set. The cross image is colored with Copic markers, including the gold. This time the card is a 5x7 because the cross image is so large you have to make the card a little bigger to be able to add the additional elements.
Like all my posts, just click on the card image if you want the know more about the stamps, colors or want to see the full directions and bigger images.

I wanted to share my blog "creation story." I was great at creating and stashing cards away, but my friends made fun of my hoarding. I never sent the cards! I was afraid that I could never recreate the hard-earned ideas. I began photographing cards and eventually created this blog, which allows all of us to have a record of what we have created. The title of the blog applies to me and probably no one else who posts on here...but as much as I've tried to come up with a new title, this one stuck. I'm so grateful to all of you for contributing and following this blog!!
