A little late...

Feeling gratitude and not expressing it is like wrapping a present and not giving it. -William Arthur Ward
Oops, I meant to post this last night, but I was Forced Smiley from to go out on the town with a friend of mine and didn't get it up...Sorry! Smiley from

This is my card for this week's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge, which is being sponsored by Raindrop Echo Designs...have you seen the Awesome sentiments they have??? So many wonderful choices!! AND it is ALL 25% off thru the end of July!!!

I went thru my Digital stamp files and found one of Ann's sentiments so I decided I had to spotlight it for my card today, not to mention I am working on a pile of Thank Yous and Birthday cards for my Grandma, so it worked perfectly!
