Kind Thanks

Lots of Kind Thanks going on here! I spotted a card similar to this on Stampin' Connections by mommie2quads (which just makes me exhausted to write) and loved how she let the Designer Series Paper take the focus on the card.
Cardstock: Old Olive, So Saffron, Rose Red, Whisper White
Stamp Set: Thank You Kindly, With All My Heart
Accessories: Extra large Fancy Flower, 1" Circle, Eyelet Border Punch, Rich Regals Brads, Trio Flower (which perfectly cuts out the small flower in the With All My Heart stamp set...gotta love that Stampin' Up! for always thinking for us!!

My Ace In Training son, Benjamin is still making cakes! This one was a practice one to keep up his skills on fondant roses. The colors were beautiful, even though you wouldn't know it by the color in this picture Ü


Good news for all of you who have e-mailed me about the sock monkey hats!

I contacted Debbie Orme, Store Director for the Fuego store where I purchased them. She said to contact her directly if you want to purchase a sock monkey hat and she will see what she can do. Her number is 208-287-3292 and e-mail is Boise@shopfuego.com . Good luck!

  6. Hi, Becky--

    Your son is so cute! I admire that he's interested in cake decorating (my hubby is, too) because so many people think it's a girl thing. He is very talented!!

  7. These cards are REALLY gorgeous! Fab job!

  8. Oh my gosh...that cake is BEAUTIFUL !! If you guys lived closer I'd hire him to make my daughter and future in law's cake !!!

    Love your card, girlie !!!

    Miss ya like crazy !!!

  9. The cards are beautiful and so understated. What am I missing on the paper - are you using a DSP?

    Benjamin's cakes have been fun to follow as well! He has a future!

  10. Hi Becky,
    Love the cake Ben !!! Great job...
    Hats are also great~~~
    I thought I would check things out on your Blog..We are all moved out of the house and will turn it over on Fri. Lots of work...
    Talk to you soon.
    Great new card!!!

  11. OMG! OMG! OMG! Thank you so much for CASEing one of my cards and giving me the credit. I feel so HONORED and FLATTERED that the GREAT Becky Roberts is CASEing my card. My kids and I (Quads + 1) have been shouting and dancing with joy. Thank you so much. I am truly humble. Be Blessed. Oh, your Son's cakes are beautiful, he is very talented. I guess the saying is true, the apple doesn't fall far from the tree. (smiley face)

  12. Love the cards. Very pretty. I love Benjamin's cake. He is quite talented. I am a pastry chef, trained at the CIA in New York. You need to get him a copy of The Cake Bible so his cakes taste as yummy as they look. Also a great fondant product that actually tastes good is called ChocoPan. Check them out. He has a bright future ahead of him.

  13. What DSP did you use? I can't seem to find it. I LOVE these cards and would like to CASE them for a charity project I am doing. I love your work and check it regularly.

  14. The cards are just lovely........Ben is unreal....looks like something from "Cake Boss" - he is going to be famous !!! (and rich)

    The hats are adorable....so are the kids!!!

  15. thanks for sharing all your creations. And your son is a natural at cake decoration. This cake is beautiful!! I would buy that cake! Keep up the good work Benjamin!

  16. Benjamin is doing a GREAT job on his cakes. I hope to do as well when I start my classed. Ace of cakes look out! He just may be the next cake BOSS.

  17. That should of been classes.
    And I have added a link from my blog to yours because I think you are amazing.

  18. Love the cards Becky! And, your sock is rockin' the cakes, how cool!!! LOVE those sock monkey hats, I totally NEED one!!! *STAMPIN HUGS* Alex
