~A Touch of Whimsy,Quilling, and CAKE!~

It's funny that I won a chuckle set from Skipping Stones:You Know You're Getting Old When a week or so ago.

I just turned 42.

Tell you what, I felt GREAT on Sunday, my birthday.

I felt better than I did at 30.  REALLY!

But almost everyday since, well, a headache here or odd pain there.


What's going on?

Maybe God gave me grace that day. ;) 

Anyway, I REALLY love the whimsical cake in that set and wanted to participate in their sketch challenge.

(Skipping Stones Design You Know You're Getting Old Birthday,Memento ink tuxedo black,Copic pink and brown,Memento marker red,Teresa Collins DP,Quilling paper,Spellbinders Classic circles,Recollections music punch,Bazzill cardstock pink,American Crafts AC cardstock)

Awesome sketch, right?

Thank you, Skipping Stones, for the delightful win that turned out a gift! ;)

Also, thank you Jingle for sending it out in time for my big day!

My yummy colors AND CAKE are inspired by

How can you get this yum out of your head?

I can't!

Finally, the whimsy was searched out and thought about for Inspired By #9

You know, Minnie likes pink just as much as RED...I KNOW...I just went to Disney World this past Fall and she is totally cool with it. ;)
