Averie's Thank You Cupcake Cards


I had to have stamp when I saw it. I think Taylor's little cupcake addiction is contagious. Also, I knew Averie's 6th birthday was coming up and these would be perfect for thank you cards. This one opens from the middle.... the top of the cupcake flips up. It's held down with a little BasicGrey Magnetic Snap Closures (love those things!). I will show you the inside and how they open exactly later.... I'm on a mission to get these done today before family starts to arrive tomorrow. I stamped the full stamp out on copy paper and I'm going to have Averie color them in and add the names and the thank you information. She LOVES to color and does a super job too!

Averie had the best birthday. The weather was perfect. The boys are usually the ones who have friends up because they are older and I think parents are more likely to let them stay at the lake, so when she had all the girls around her, she was IN HEAVEN.

My friend makes the MOST awesome cakes. This is a photo of Averie with just HER cake.... we had a big one of our own to eat.... spoiled little girlie that she is. THANK YOU TRACY for the awesome cake! You really didn't have to make two! LOL... but Averie felt VERY special.
Averie is always a little shy when it comes to everyone singing happy birthday to her. She concentrates on those candles!

One more photo that I have to show you where you can really see the joy in her face. After swimming and tubing all day, they hop in the hot tub to warm up. It was so cute seeing all the kids splashing around in there. This photo is Averie with my friend's girls, Gracie and Cali and then Averie. They are just one and two years older than her, so she LOVES hanging with them and feeling like a big girl.




The recipe:
