Bake a Cake

Whew! I cannot believe I am still up. I really wanted to go to bed three hours ago, but my husband convinced me I needed to stay awake so I would sleep all night. He was so right, because I start back to work tomorrow. Summer is over and it is back to school we go for our first workday. Plus I have several cards I need to make in the next few days, so I need to get busy. This card was inspired by this week's challenge at Fantabulous Cricut (Piece of Cake!) and my desire to use Cricut cartridges that I had not used before.

This is the first time I have ever made a scene card. I think it is okay for a first time (just don't look to close at my pen stitching--must be too tired to make that straight). I rarely cook, so making this card is the closest I will come to making a birthday cake for someone. Thought it would be a nice change from the traditional birthday card.

Forever Young was used to create the female figure.

From My Kitchen was used to make the oven and the slice of cake.

Sweet Treats was used to create the cake.

Sweet dreams to all. I am finally off to bed.


  1. That is so adorable, Jennifer! I love the colors for the cook's clothes! And what you did with the slice of cake. Very cute! Good luck on your first day back to school. -- Pat N.

  2. Love how the outfit on the gorgeous cook and the cake match and pop. The slice of cake looks so real. Great job! Thanks for joining us this week at the FCCB "Piece of Cake " challenge.
