Hope Stamps Eternal-Cupcake Inspiration #17


It's time for another Cupcake-Inspired Challenge from the Sweeties at Hope Stamps Eternal! I hope to see LOTS of players this week, because HOW could you not be inspired by this yummy display? The fact that they're chocolate alone is inspiring enough, but look at those colors! Bright and summery... you can't go wrong! Link your creation back on the Hope Stamps Eternal blog using Mr. Linky so we can see what yumminess you come up with, too! And if you upload to an online gallery like Paper Craft Planet, be sure to tag your photo using CIC17!

So, you can probably guess that I was inspired by the bright colors, right? Here's my card using some fun new paper I got from Kaiser, and some of the new Stampin' Up! Melon Mambo cardstock and ribbon. Someone I know has a birthday coming up very soon, so I just had to get a birthday card ready to send her and this cute Mouse and Candle from Whipper Snapper was the perfect stamp to use!

Be sure to stop at the other Sweeties blogs today to check out more cupcake goodness!


I hope your weekend is going great! The weather is beautiful here in Northeast Ohio, and we're loving every minute of it! Have a great Sunday!

What a cutie patootie image done up in such a cheery way! I swear a computer screen doesn't do your coloring justice! Now that I've seen your work in person -- I know it is so much better IRL! You are the bomb when it comes to coloring girlie!
