Happy late Easter and Happy Birthday Grandma!

Sorry I haven't posted in such a long time! I've been really busy with homework (7 paragraph English essay, tons of Algebra 2 homework that makes NO sense at all!) and other stuff. On Easter I was pretty busy too, going from everyone's house :) Anyways, I made these cute cards for Easter and the Minnie Mouse card for my Grandma's birthday which was on Easter :) <3

Usually googly eyes creep me out.. but these are creepily cute :) hehe

I really like this Minnie Mouse card-My Grandma Loved it! <3 :)

Have a wonderful day :)

Carrot Cake Cupcakes with Cinamon Cream Cheese Frosting!

Hi everyone! I'm so excited, I have 19 followers!! Thank you so much everyone! By reading your comments, you make my day!
Anyways.... :) My grandma is having pinochle tomorrow and she wanted me to make her some cupcakes:) I made carrot cake cupcakes with DELICIOUS cinnamon cream cheese frosting:)

My swirl turned out SO much prettier than the lemon cupcakes because my frosting was stiffer:) Usually I sprinkle cinnamon over them but I accidentally put too much cinnamon in the frosting... shhh!:)

Here's the frosting recipe:

  • 8 oz. cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup butter
  • 4 cups powdered sugar
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • 2 teaspoons cinnamon
P.S. Cupcakes right out of the fridge are the best!! Their nice and cold and the frosting is yummy and creamy:)

Have a great night everyone!!!! :)
Also, Im linking this to the Made it Myself Mondays :)

Lemon Cupcakes!

Happy Sunday everyone!:) Yesterday we went to a family potluck so I decided to make something... CUPCAKES of course!! :) I've never made lemon cream cheese frosting before so I decided to give it a try, and oh was it good!! 
My frosting was too runny because it didn't have a chance to set up, and I was running short on time. They tasted great though! And were gone in a couple minutes! Lol :)

 You can find the recipe for the frosting HERE ! I added a tablespoon more lemon juice to mine :)
Have a nice day everyone!:)

Happy Birthday Jacob!

Happy Birthday to my sweet, little brother!! Today is my brother's 14th birthday! I can't believe he's 14! I can remember when he was so cute and little! Now he's taller than me... NOT FAIR! lol. He loves Spongebob so I made him this card. (I had to put it together pretty quickly because he was leaving to go turkey hunting with my dad and I wanted him to open it up on his birthday) :) I can't wait till we have his party and I get to make his cake!! Anyways, here's his card!:) (Piecing Spongebob together was SO hard and frustrating! But it all worked out in the end) :)The stamp set I used is from MPS Fabulous Phrases that I won from Jen at Jen's Craft Corner during the Spring blog hop! Thanks Jen!!:)
