Happy Doughnut Day, Anita!


Today it's Anita's birthday so I'm popping in to wish her a "sweet" calorie-free birthday.  It should really be croissants or pain-au-chocolat rather than donuts, but I don't have any stamps for them, so doughnuts it is.  I'm sure they all go equally well with a glass of bubbly or red wine ;)  Happy birthday, Anita!

I'm entering this into Curtain Call - Donut Delight


And I don't think it's too much of a stretch to include it in Simon Says Monday Challenge - A Piece of Paradise - especially if there is a glass of bubbly to accompany it!


If you visit Anita regularly, you will know she is in the long process of renovating her home in France.  I'm renovating some houses over at STAMPlorations tonight - here's a sneak peek:




While we're talking STAMPlorations, my doughnut card actually (loosely) fits the new monthly CASEplorations challenge of this card by Julie Ebersole.  Why don't you play along?  Get all the details here.

  1. You just had me chuckling at your renovated houses, Shirley ... they look way more finished than anything here yet! Thank you so much for wishes and your sweet and yummy (and calorie free!) card ... croissant, pain au chocolat, doughnuts ... they're all good with red wine or champagne (or both!) ... they're all celebratory! Anita :)

    1. I used Glossy Accents, Jessica. Looks milky white in the photo but it's clear IRL.

  4. Shirley, they have got to be the best donuts I have ever seen on a card. They are totally amazing, they look so realistic. If you ever think on it thiswould be a brilliant card to demonstrate how to achieve a fantastic realistic and beautiful card.
