sweet birthday and sweet memory

Today's cards came about as I was cleaning up my pile of scraps. A sweet somebody sent me this cute cupcake and those white hearts (Bev B, was it you?). I paired them with some other leftovers and this happened.

Nuvo drops

Ah yes. Nuvo drops. Anyone else have this problem? Better yet, anyone have a solution? When I squeeze the bottle on a couple colors, what comes out seems to be getting gooey, hardening up a bit maybe? See these nasty little peaks on the yellow ones? Do you store them standing or laying on the side? Do you shake them before using?


I'm playing at:
Happy Little Stampers - AG with Dies
Papercraft Challenge - Sweets
Basteltraum - Birthday Party
Seize the Birthday - No coffee or tea for me, just a cupcake!

And I've got another card - a sympathy card put together with paper piecing scraps from my pile. Just added some additional stamping and a few blobs of watercolor and voila!


I'm entering this one at:
The Flower Challenge - Paper Piecing

I do have that cupcake stamp, and those hearts look like a LF die that I have, but I can't take "for sure" credit... On your card, they look fabulous. You have such a way of creating that makes me smile every single time! Great polka dotted paper, too! Nuvo drops... I never jumped on the wagon. I've got one bottle, which I rarely use, so I can't help you with the issues you speak of...sorry. Your sympathy card is so beautiful. I love the pops of color, and the pieced lotus flower. Those are fabulous stamps! And this is a fabulous design. Love this card. Have a great weekend. Bev
