Hi Ya Cupcake!

Pin It

Oh my has it been glorious weather-wise this week!  I'm sure we will pay for it later, but gosh right now it is so amazing to be wearing capri pants in March.  The last time I was able to do that was when I was living outside Clemson, South Carolina!
It smelled just like a summer evening yesterday and it made me think about dinner the other night.  Thought I would share this pick of what we had.  :)  Scallops, fresh garden salad, and warm bread sticks.  Yum!  I wish I had made the scallops on the grill or stove-top.  I tried a new recipe broiling them in the oven.  Not bad, but I like the edges crispy- same as a toasted marshmallow LOL!  Next time back to the stove-top for me.  What do you most like to eat when the weather gets nice?
For dessert- calorie free cupcakes!!!  These little darlings are the only kind of fat-free cupcake I am willing to look at.  (hee-hee)  Would you believe that these were made with winter themed paper?!?  The different pattern papers were cut into 1 inch strips and then I played around with placing them in different order on each card to spice it up.  The scallop is edging stickers from the same set as the pattern paper, the card bases are from Memory Box, and the yummy cupcake is from the "everyday button bits" set by Papertrey Ink.
Here's a sneak peek at another project I am working on- and I have some more rolled roses projects in the works too!


  1. That looks soooo good. I love my marshmallows toasty roasty as well ;)
    Your cards are so pretty. I like how you did the background strips, great way to use up some scrap papers.
    Your cupcakes look delish ;)

  2. The cupcake cards are wonderful and even better that they used up scrap strips! Love the pink twine on top!

    I'm not a big fan of scallops, but that salad looks awesome!!

  3. Love your cupcake cards! I like scallops but they never come out as good as I had hoped when I make them. Please share your recipe! I love to cook outside when the weather gets nice. Everything tastes better it seems. I especially love grilled pizza!


Thank you so much for your sweet comments!
