National Doughnut Day!

Yes, this is a thing! And, now that I know, I really *should* show my spirit and honor this day to the fullest with a trip to the nearest shop!  (Update: I didn't. But was there in spirit!) Here is a card I made with Claire Brennan's We Go Together set and my Triple Play Frame.  Aren't these little guys adorable?  Love the little arms and legs she added to get them moving! 

I love using my Triple Play Frame when I want to design a card that showcases smaller images!  After stamping, adding appendages, coloring (be sure to leave some white on the icing to make it shiny!) and finally "sprinkling", I used those same color markers to fill in the rest of the frame's borders. Always enjoy Neopolitan colors together, it's the "yummiest" combo! Last I added the polka dot belly band fillers from Triple Play Fillers in Dusty Rose.  Greeting is stamped in Dark Chocolate and Black Onyx and cardstock is Pure Luxury White. I realize after photographing I forgot to add my shadows under the donuts, which would have been so much better, oops! Pretend they are there, 'cause I added!

Happy Friday! The kids are out of school! Summer, woo hoo! Happy National Doughnut Day!!!


  1. So cute, Melanie. Crawling Doughnuts?

  2. Melanie, what a cute card! Those walking doughnuts stop right at the hipline, maybe if you gave them longer legs they would keep on walking. :)

  3. What a geniusly {is that a word?} made card! I love the way you made the spotlighted banner for it!

  4. Looking at this post reminds me of my previous roommate! He
    constantly kept preaching about this. I'll send this post
    to him. Fairly certain he'll have a great read.
