Freebie Friday at Jen's

Hey everyone!  TGIF!!!
I know it has been a really long week for me, how about you?  Lots going on in my life but life is still really good and filled with God's blessings, how can I complain!  My mom always says, "If you think you have it bad, just look over your shoulder, there is always someone less fortunate than you."  It's true.

So... onto something to cheer you up!  It's freebie time at Jen's Digi Stamps Blog and today's image is great!  Although this darling cupcake is topped with a pumpkin it really is a versatile image.  I made a fun little 4 1/2 x 4 1/2 card with it.  Click on the link and see what the other design team members have used it for.
I used a scrap of paper from my stash which is Basic Grey if I remember right then stitched it right onto some textured cardstock.  I also used buttons and embroidery thread from my stash, nothing fancy. 
 The sentiment "Sweet Treats" is from K. Andrew Designs, it is her "Fall-O-Ween set that is mix and match.  I love it.  I have used it for so many things already and have only had it a few weeks.  I have to admit that after working so hard to color the image the best I could, I was a bit nervous to stamp directly on it, but I held my breath and went for it!  I have yet to mess up a stamp with K. Andrew Stamps.  They are a great quality stamp. (And I don't work for her or design for her, I just like a good product! :) Oh and don't forget, she donates money to many different charities for every stamp set purchased.  Her tag line is "Stamp Good, Do Good."  I LIKE it!
Now this is the fun part.  I saw somewhere on the web that people were popping up images and cuts with something called "action wobbles." (I think that is what they are called anyway)  I really thought they were cute.  When you use them and give the card to someone, they pull it out of the envelope and the image wobbles, it is really fun.  So I wanted to buy some but there's a few problems. 1. I can't buy them locally, 2. I am too impatient to order them from the internet and 3. I am CHEAP!  So I made mine and it works like a charm.  I just used some thin craft wire, twisted it around a pencil, attached it to the card with a foam pop dot but didn't peel the paper off the other side and then attached it the same way to the image.  Voila!  Action Wobble!
I hope you find this little idea helpful and the image uplifting.  Thanks for stopping by!
