Vintage Kitchen & some Fiesta treats!

Hope all is going well. Wanted to share a little vintage card I made awhile back.  Made with pattern paper from October Afternoon and Graphic 45. I love this old kitchen motif and this super cute pink mixer in the background!

this is the inside of the card! The grid design is stamped using Hero Arts S5416 Grid background stamp. (The center of the grid design was masked off with a post it note)
Also wanted to share an old 1960's vintage Betty Crocker Party book. There are so many great images and text in this book. Perfect for fun party ideas & maybe crafting too! This was my Mom's book and she gave it to me a few years back, its proudly displayed in my china cabinet :)


We celebrated Cinco de Mayo
 this week at work. These festive cupcakes above were made by  Britney. There are just so many great details on these Sombrero cupcakes. Totally love them and they were super yummy too!!  My sweet tooth was very  happy :)

It was fun to make this piñata cake and I like the fact you can add anything to the inside cookies, chocolate bars ect).  Its 2 cakes that are hollow in the middle and  filled with M&M's!
the little "piñata cake" Flag made with Hero Arts cl141 Fanciful swirls and airbrushed with copic markers.

 I got the idea from Pintrest and Clair's great website. . Please see Clair's blog found here for step by step instructions and her beautiful cake.

Hope you are having a great week!
Thanks for stopping by
