I {heart} DONUTS!

Winners of the blog hop giveaway announced here
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I have been in the donut mood lately, namely, I enjoy making cards with donut images! Don't get me wrong...I'd LOVE to have a REAL donut or two (the kind with the chocolate icing is my favorite).
But the calories are the killers! So I'm content to make cards with donuts. The CREATE Challenge Blog asked for submissions for cards with FELT.
Thank you--
 This has got me thinking....! Donuts with icing! Can you almost taste it?
#2
I love the 2nd card, but somehow the color of the felt is not quite true to its original color (which is a hot pink). But I am posting it to share anyway. The sentiments of the1st and 2nd cards are
from the SRM Stickers (shop here). This card was featured in CREATE Blog.
time to celebrate
Last but not least, it's a quick card that I made within an hour. It's for Hero Arts Scramble Challenge. The challenge was to use something old (2010 stamp) and something new (2011 stamp). This donut was paper-pieced. The cutting part was not too bad--thankfully. You can see the Flickr comments here.
Scramble challenge
Hope you "enjoy" these donut cards! NO calories involved!  Have a SWEET day!

YUMMY! I LOVE donuts, too! I used some of my weight watcher's flex points Saturday morning, and got some donuts from the bakery!
My favorite are the chocolate iced with the custard filling! It tasted oh so good! The boys were pretty happy with me, too!
All of your cards are just fabulous, Virginia! Good enough to eat ;)

Not really a donut fan really. I like Danishes more, but so in love with these tasty donuts you have here. These do look super yummy though. I think they look good enough to eat. Congrats on being picked for the Create Blog, I saw that and was so happy for you. Love all that you do and these are the best donuts to eat anyway! Lol. Thanks for teasing me and for making me want a Tim's and a Danish. Lol. Hugs.
