Add Some Sprinkles

I love donuts.  When I say love, I mean capital L, LOVE donuts.  Maybe it's because when I was in elementary school my mom worked at a donut shop. My siblings and I would walk to the shop after school instead of going home.  We would sit at the counter while my mom worked and have a donut and coffee while we did our homework.  In those days or maybe just in the town we lived in they were a little more relaxed about kids in the kitchen and the donut baker allowed us to "help" him make the donuts.  

There was no machine to cut the donuts or fry or ice them, it was all done by hand. My favorite part was drenching the hot donuts with icing.  I can still taste the hot iced donuts when I think about it.   I really wish he'd taught us the recipes because I cannot make a homemade donut to save my life.

Did you shop at the Unity end of the year sale?  I did.  The stamp set showcased on this card and the one that triggered the good memory is Sweet Sprinkled Donut by Graciellie Design.  I used pink stickles to make the sprinkles on the donut pop a bit other than that this was a fairly quick and easy design that is a perfect card for an upcoming birthday.

Have a great Sunday!
