50 Cent Placemat

I found this placemat being sold “As Is” for 50 cents. You can’t see it real well, but there are black smear marks on the back side.

I brought it home and cut the top corner two cupcakes out using a box cutter. I then smoothed out the edges with an X-acto knife.

I raided my card drawer for two blank cards and Zots dots (adhesive dots).

Voila, I present you with two birthday cards!

I’m clam-happy (happy as a clam) with how they came out!

On a personal note, Dan has been battling the flu for the past week. He came down with the flu on Wednesday. He stayed home from work on Thursday and Friday. By Saturday, he was starting to feel better. On Sunday, we met up with friends for brunch and Lost Abbey beer (It’s Beer Week in Philadelphia. Normally, we don’t start drinking before Noon. Honest.). Monday he went to work, but stayed drugged on Sudafed. Yesterday, he came home early with a high fever again. Today, he is back at work. But, today I woke up with a sore throat. So, if I’m MIA from Blogland for the next few days, you’ll know why. More importantly, you’ll know that it’s All Dan’s Fault.

  1. Ha ha, that’s right, always blame the man! The cupcake cards look way too cute. Your placemat was a find but it’s what you’ve done with it that’s spun it into gold. Hope the throat gets better soon. Jo x

  2. Cupcake cards are smashing! well done!

    So hoping that you avoid the nasty flu – it sounds dreadful.

    Wishing you health,

  3. You are too clever! Sorry you aren’t feeling well. Steve simply says to me I know it’s my fault I’m just curious how…..

  4. Ohoh! Hope you fell better. We all escaped so far and it is rampant around here. We all get the flu shot tho’ because of Mike’s asthma. The shot is not supposed to be very effective this year tho.

  5. Those are awesome!

    Yuck on flu front. We just got word on the news that the flu is finally hitting down here. I warned John that he will be going to stay at a nice hotel if he catches the crud. I can’t take a flu shot and I’m always worried I’m going to catch it. :(

  6. Yumm, I am craving cupcakes now. Get well soon, that flu is nasty. Spring will be here soon!
