Two More Cupcakes


Here are two more cards made using Regina's cupcakes from the Cutting Cafe. You can see that I used exactly the same papers for both cards. Some more of my spectacular wobbly stitching on these - I pretend that I am being arty and that it's all by design, but you know better, don't you.
I have had a flurry of emails asking me to be peoples 'friends' on facebook. Of course I said yes, because I only joined at the insistence of my friend Anne, who has about a zillion friends on her facebook. For ages I was stuck at four, Anne, her two daughters, and my own daughter. How pathetic. I got quite paranoid. How could a really nice person like me have so few friends? Then these emails started coming, some of my crafting blog buddies, and some people I have never heard of in my life. ***** ****** has asked you to be her friend, intones Facebook. YES I reply joyfully, although I haven't a clue who she is, at least she is a friend now and I don't look like such a sad and lonely person. I must admit to failing to see the point of social networking sites like Facebook, what's wrong with sending an email to someone if you have something to say to them, or (revolutionary idea this) pick up the phone for a chat. All this writing on peoples walls is totally beyond me. At the last count it said 'Enfys has 30 friends'. Well, in anybodies book, that looks better than 'Enfys is a saddo, who only has four friends in the entire world :)

These cupcakes are amazingly yummy looking Enfys.Great pp, and I really like the soft colors.

As for Facebook, I HEAR YOU. LOL
I started to get friend invites too and eagerly accepted, why I don't know because I never go there unless I get a friend reguest where upon going there to accept all I do is delete all the silly plants, drinks, and whatnot people keep giving to me. I DON'T GET IT. hahaha.

Anyway hope you have a wonderful day

Hi Enfys, loving your cards as always! I did some ebay buying a couple of days ago and when I got my invoice I saw an unusual name I thought could not be a coincidence - I was right it was you!! Can't wait for the Martha Stewart punch to arrive!!!!!!

Dawny P said...

Well thank you En for being my friend chick. I am still a saddo and only have 13 and I'm paranoid about that number, so a paranoid saddo at that!! I am going to have to drum up some more before fire and brimstone rains down on me lol xxx I saw my nephew's pic on there and I decided that I really don't want to see what's on his page - I'm sure it wouldn't be suitable for those of a nervous dispositon. Not that I am of course, but some of my friends might be lol xxx My Emma gave me a funny look this morning when I told her I had got me a page on it. I so feel 'with it' now!!!

These cards are fantastic - Ohh I so love those colours. Just brilliant xxxx

Gramrussell said...

Absolutely love these colors~ great cards.

willow said...

Oh Enfys you always seem to brighten my day with your humour, I know what you mean about facebook though most of the friends I have on there are all family. I only go on there when I get an e-mail saying someone wants me for something and its mostly poker or something I neither know how to play or cant be bothered with.

Great scrummy cards that look good enough to eat, am off to check out those desings for myself.

Hi Enfys - I was just pointed to your blog from a friend who thought your style was close to mine. I have to say I luv your cards and you do have a great blog. These cupcakes are really great, everything about them is great! Come and visit me sometime and let me know what you think, I'd appreciate your opinion.

Peace and Luv,
Jeannie

I must be feeling better because these cupcakes are making me hungry. As always, I love everything you make.

P.S. I didn't use DS on the cards I made. Just the Wild Card Cart.

P.S.S. I'm gonna ask you to be my friend on FB

Sandy from Ukiah said...

cute cute cards enfys... I don't have a clue what facebook is and probably don't want to know, I have a hard time trying to keep up with the blog hopping and the MB... I'm your friend (even though you never stop by my blog anymore. :-(

Sharon Caudle said...

Love your cupcake cards Enfys! I had to laugh about the facebook thing. I joined for some reason I can't even remember ages ago. It might have been one of those silly adds about finding old school mates or something to that affect. now I'm gettins messages about people wanting to be my friend, and I never even frequent the site. So I just accept and move on. I have no idea what ANY of it means. LOL! Have a great weekend! hugs!

Hi Enfys, I love your cards. I think they are awesome. You definately picked awesome color choices.

As for Facebook, you are one step above me. I don't even have a facebook account, and all of my friends have on and constantly ask me to join.

Missed the blog candy, ah well I don't need it!

I couldn't cope with facebook too, I spend far too much time online now!

Love the cupcakes!!! Thanks so much for sharing!!

Mary said...

I agree on the facebook thing. I totally cannot agree to the whole concept. I would rather email or IM or txt on cell or call. All four of my daughters are on facebook and seems thats how they communicate with each other. The way of the times for our offspring.
I don't have time for that. I'ld rather be crafting. At least I can craft and talk on the phone at the same time. :) Luv your blog.

Scrap'nGranny said...

Enfys, your cards, layouts, & anything to do with scrapping or stamping are always outstanding!

My daughter set up a Facebook for me and I like so many have no idea what to do with it ... and yes I receive invites from folks who I have no idea who they are ... haha

What all do you know about Provo's new product ... Gypsie? sounds awesome but $$$$$
