The 3 hour cupcake

Here is the 3rd card I made for round two (if you haven't voted you have until noon MST today). This card is ginormous, like 7"x8" something like that. The *flowers have *eyelets in the center and then I placed mini pearls in the middle of the eyelets. This is the card Al thought I should have turned in for the contest, but didn't tell me until I had already turned in my green card. I told him he isn't allowed to keep this kind of info from me anymore. LOL! Keeping my fingers crossed! Thank you thank you so much everyone who has voted for me!! I really really do appreciate the support. I am sure you are getting tired of me talking about this, but it really does mean so much to me. Thanks!!
So, here are a couple of pictures from the our zoo trip yesterday. It was SO HOT yesterday morning, which made our visit short. Most of the animals were hiding in the shade, so you couldn't see a lot of them. The ones that were out in the open were either in the water or from Africa. It wasn't quite Africa HOT, but hot enough for us. Aly got a blister on her ankle from her new shoes, so my Mom, my Aunt and I all took turns carrying her that last half of the "tour". When we were leaving I noticed that they have these really cool statues out in front of the entrance. I am not sure what kind of metal they are made of, but I had to get some pictures of them. The first is of me and my kiddos and the second is Aly with the "Ali"gator.

Wow, you are just so creative. I think all the cards are equal in beauty, so you made the right choice. Next time only make one card that way you will not have to stress out.

Pamela Smerker said...

Yes, for sure one card next time. Thanks Daniela.
