Adventure Time House Party

Hello everyone!  This is not a crafty post, but I do have a picture of some cute cupcakes I made :)

Have you heard of House Party?  You can apply to host parties to promote products.  Last year I had Glade, Blue Bunny Ice Cream, and Keurig Vue parties.  They send you a party kit which includes products for you and sometimes guests, along with some party favors for all the guests.

Last week, I got to host a Cartoon Network Adventure Time party.  I have 2 teenagers and they love this show!  We previewed the newest episode that will air on Cartoon Network on Monday night.  My son had six of his 15/16 year old friends come--I was so surprised that they wanted to come but they had a great time.  Since he invited friends on his own, we had 2 parties that day.  I sure was tired after all that!

Here's a picture of some simple cupcakes I made for the party.  They have a character on the show called Mr. Cupcake.  He should have a pink nose, but I didn't have pick icing.  Otherwise, it's pretty close :)

I hope to get back to regular crafting again this weekend.  Just not sure why I haven't been that crafty lately, but I do miss it!

Have a fabulous weekend!!

Trendy Twine Valentines

Hello everyone!  It's my turn to post over at Trendy Twine today.  We are showcasing the Valentine Cherry Cupcake Trendy Twine this month.  It's still on sale for 2 more days, so miss out!

I have 2 3x3 Valentine cards for you today. These were really quick to put together.  The weather has been rainy so not the best pictures for you today--sorry!

I love the chevron Charles Cuttlebug folder I used on the second card and the bird stamp is from Close to My Heart.  There is a lot of tape on the back of the Valentine Cherry Cupcake Twine on an angle, but I really like the look :)  I really wanted to show you something more fabulous, but I have been sick for a week, but it's not the flu, thank goodness!

There is still plenty of time to join our challenge this month.  You all must be working on some on Sweets for Your Sweeties, so if they follow the challenge, be sure to enter :)

Have a great day!

Trendy Twine Monday Challenge

Hello everyone!!  There's another challenge starting over at Twine It Up! with Trendy Twine.  The theme is Sweets for my Sweetie and we are showcasing the Valentine Cherry Cupcake which is on sale until February 14th.

Here is my project:


This was super easy to put together.  I think this might be a good size for a box of candy hearts.  A smaller size box would be perfect for a small treat too.
