Paper Cupcakes From the Heart and a Movie That Touched My Heart

I hope that this post is finding you doing well.  What craft projects have all of you been working on?  I have not done any crafting for the past two weeks.  When I am home I have been cleaning the house, doing paperwork, or am just too tired to do anything.  I finally got around to working on a card for swap yesterday.  It felt good to get my creative juices flowing again.  :)  I will share with you what I made for my swap after I mail it.  Today I am going to share with you a card and cupcake that I made for a friend last month for her b-day.  She bakes the most fab and beautiful cakes and cupcakes so I thought it would fun to surprise her with cupcake that I quilled and a cupcake themed card. Here are some of the different steps that I did to make the cupcake. (Each part of the cupcake starts off as a stripes of paper that I quill into a circle.  After I form the flat circle I move the strips around to create a bowl shape for the bottom and the top of the cupcake. For the flower I quilled smaller circles and squeezed them carefully to form little tear drops.)

After I made the cupcake I put it in a plastic shaped cupcake. 

Here is the card that I made for her.

My friend was very surprised and loved what I made for her.  Before I end I wanted to share a few pictures of what I have been up to.  God has used several opportunities recently that really touch my heart.  One happened yesterday.  After an ono time of enjoying some poke from a local restaurant called PokeStuf

my hubby and I went to go watch a movie called War Room.

The movie is one of the best movies that we had ever watched.  We had a good time laughing and crying together but best of all God used the movie to speak to our hearts to remind us what a powerful weapon prayer is.  My hubby and I highly recommend that everyone watch this movie.  We pray that God will use the movie to continue to transform the lives of everyone that watches it. Thanks for dropping by to see what I have to share.  If you have a chance please leave me a comment so I know that you stopped by.  Have a blessed weekend!

  1. Your quilled cupcake looks really "yummy" Colleen. And to place it in the plastic cupcake holder makes your gift even more special. I'll bet your friend was head-over-heels when she received it. The poke salad also looks yummy even though I don't eat poke. :-) I heard about War Room. It was playing in Kona but won't be coming to Hilo. I'd love to see it one day. Thanks for sharing how much you and Benson enjoyed it.
