Happy Cupcake Day! I’m so glad it’s Friday… I’m ready for the weekend! I’ll be attending a stamp convention with some SoCal friends on Saturday and then sitting down at my craft table to create on Sunday. It’s supposed to be 94 degrees on Sunday so I’ll probably be playing outside too! (((HUGS))) to all of you still buried in snow! Today’s cupcake image comes from my own collection of stamps. Lockhart Stamp Company is one of my favorites! They have some awesome cupcake images and so much more to choose from. Check out Ellen’s online store for all the goodies! I colored the image with markers (mostly because I was too tired to drag out the Prismacolor pencils! LOL!) and topped each cupcake with a little jewel. I colored the cupcake stand with silver paint pen. The outside of the image is highlighted with Crystal Stickles. I pierced around the image and instead of stitching, I traced around each hole with white gel pen. The Brocade Blue card base is stamped with Aida Cloth. The patterned paper is from the Hansel collection by Piggy Tales. The little present charm is by Making Memories and the ribbon is from Michael’s. I have met so many wonderful people through this hobby we all love, and I’d like to introduce a couple of them to you today. This is Willow…. isn’t she adorable!? Look at that cute pink bow in her hair!! And her owner Pegi Taylor is just the sweetest lady that ever lived! She has been such an encouragement to me over the past few months. Pegi sent me this picture of Willow to show me how Cupcake Friday has reached into the doggie world (notice the little cupcake on Willow’s dress)! *wink* Pegi dresses Willow in her cute cupcake outfit every Friday. She also scanned a pic of the dress… I love how it says “yummy” on the cupcake. Too cute! Thanks Pegi and Willow for sharing your Cupcake Friday tradition!
