Birthday Bakery

What I love about my family is how we support each other. A few years back, my SIL in Indonesia who worked at big corporation, took a leap of faith by quitting her job and pursue her passion. She loves baking and making cookies, cake, etc.

Well, long story short, everybody pitched in on this effort. Her hubby, Jeff, who's my older brother, provided the appliances, my younger brother, Jerry designed her logo, business supplies, etc. My mom help with packaging, etc. My other SIL help with promotion. Oh yes, they also have the job of being taster/food critique. A job that I am very jealous of. Hah! As for me, I provide the cards for all her order.

I love the fact that my cards being put to good use all the way on the other side of the world. Every time someone goes back home, I'd packed in a bundle of cards for my SIL.

So, I am always on the look out for fun stamp, especially those with cupcake or bakery related item. Like this stamp from Purple Onion Designs. I knew I have to have it just for my SIL.

This card is totally CAS, but I just love the way it turned out. It feels very modern because of all the white space.

Wanna see a sample of cupcake that my talented SIL made? Here's my birthday cupcakes from last year. Yep, I took them back all  the way from Indonesia. LOL, I couldn't bear to eat the pug topping. I ate the cupcake, but save these topping. So, yeah... my pug collection including 2 cupcake topping in the freezer. 

Eli, the model for the cupcake. ;)

Well, that's a peek into our family dynamic. Hope you enjoy today's post. I'll see you tomorrow with new MFT sketch challenge!
