Color Combo

I absolutely love the color combination of red and aqua. I'm even thinking about decorating my living room using these colors.
I found these lovely red/aqua color combo examples on Lollishops and made this fun photo collage using Picasa3.
What are some of YOUR favorite color combinations?

Cupcake Magnets!

I searched and searched for some cute digital cupcake images to make magnets with... (almost emailed a certain graphic artist to beg her to make some for me...you KNOW who you are!) and finally found these cuties! I really don't know what happened with my photos. My camera was acting very weird but I was able to take some half way decent pictures.

I've listed them on my ETSY store. Hopefully someone will love them as much as me!

Just some cute cards

Here are a just afew cards that I've made and listed in my shops.

PinkPatrice Boutique on Etsy OR PinkPatrice on Lollishops

Here is one for Valentine's Day. I saw a card made with these colors in a magazine and although it doesn't have the usual colors of pink/red/white I really like it.

Everything is about owls these days so I included them in this fun "BFF" card. I also love the lined writing paper on this card. It's fun and unexpected. Maybe that's just the elementary teacher in me!

More birds! I love these cuties! This is a style of card I love to create; two different (yet coordinating) patterned papers with a strip of paper across the middle (usually with a sentiment on it). I also am in love with this brown flower. I made hundreds of them awhile back (in a variety of colors) so they eventually show up on my cards!
Of course I have to have some cards with PINK in them. I made some little cards similar to these awhile back. Sooo cute! Alas, I've run out of cute stickers though and can't remember when /where I bought them or the maker of them. :( Anyone have any ideas??

Happy Shopping!

Cupcake Goodness

Lately, I've been obsessed with cupcakes. Not the ones you eat, but crafts that have images of cupcakes or look like real cupcakes. I even ordered a needle felting cupcake kit from here and make a felted cupcake!

Me: Honey, look! What is this? (Proudly holding up finished, needle felted cupcake)
Me: Honey!
Me: Randal!
Husband: oh, ummm..... an ice cream cone? (With one eye still on his computer screen)
Me: No......... it's supposed to be a cupcake.... see, look at the picture on the box. It looks EXACTLY like it. (Holding up box)
Husband: Oh....yeah...a cupcake.... (nodding with raised eyebrows)

Anywho.....I'm continuously seaching the internet for cupcake frillity (yeah, made that word up-I think). I've found a few lovely items but I want MORE. I know there is something or things out there of cupcake fashion that will just make me gasp with delight! So, on I search.

In the meantime, here are some lovelies I've found on my searching journey. Enjoy!

Heather at Heather Knitz at Lollishops.com makes a lot of cute buttons, magnets, bookmarks, etc. with cupcake fabric. Love 'em!

Check out this darling cupcake necklace and earrings! How precious! I want! Get them at Migoto Chou on Lollishops.com.

Ok, this next one isn't actually a FAVORITE of mine but I couldn't resist posting it here. It's a fabulous painting and costs....$600.00! Ouch! Yeah.... I'M not even in love with cupcakes THAT much. But still....it is pretty awesome and does look amazingly realistic. Find it at Thaneeya McArdle on Etsy.

Two Pink Cupcakes - Original Painting

And here is a amazing needle felted cupcake! (I definitely have to practice my felting techniques) This little beauty comes from Merry Moon's Sweets & Treats

Jumbo Needle Felted Cupcake-Pink

I actually bought a onesie from Freckled Pink on Lollishops but I didn't go for this darling cupcake one. Not too sure my hubby would want me toting around our son with a cupcake on his shirt! :)

I am a woman who can never have enough purses. In fact, I recently bought myself a PINK one the other day. With turquoise interior. Darling. But look at these cuties!

From Purseona on Etsy. Love the red and white polka dots with the pink cupcake fabric on this one.
Cherry on top cupcake handbag/ tote with Michael miller fabrics.

And from Adds To The Humor on Etsy.... more felt!

Indulgence - Chocolate Cupcake

And finally this cute, little cupcake charm from Nina Gibson Designs on Etsy. Sorry the picture is so small. Visit her store for a larger view!

So...all I ask is that if you ever happen upon a charming cupcake creation drop me a line...er..email! Thanks!!!
