Happy Friday and Happy Cupcake Day! I continue to feel a little bit better each day so that’s good news!Tonight I’m heading down to Lakewood for two days of stamping and chatting with Splitcoast friends from all over the country at StampMania! Jami, Emily, and Joy put on this event annually and it just keeps getting better and better! I can’t wait! On today’s cupcake card I used a new set that my friend Laura gave me. Thanks, Laura! The cupcake image is from Inkadinkadoo’s Birthday Cupcake set. It has so many cute cupcake images…a perfect starter set for a cupcake collector! I used the Crate Paper Katlin Collection of patterned papers. The image is layered on Spellbinders Classic and Scalloped rectangles and then I added Lilac twill from Taylored Expressions. This time the cupcake challenge is a sketch challenge. I’ve been using this layout a lot recently (see Bride to Be card and Love card), and I’m excited to see what all of you do with it! You’re not required to use cupcakes for the challenge, but if you got ’em why not use ’em!? 🙂 If you’re uploading to Splitcoast use keyword TECC12 (for Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge 12). Leave a comment on this post with a link to your blog post or gallery upload so I can check it out! I will draw one random entry from among all the participants to win the Stampendous Flower Chat set pictured above! You must have your cards uploaded by Monday, April 21st at 8am PST to be eligible for the prize drawing. Here’s the sketch for you to follow. Can’t wait to see what you all come up with! I also wanted to share the card I made for last week’s cupcake challenge. The stamp set is exclusive to Eclectic Paperie… this little fishy is named Sushi. Isn’t he soooo cute!? You can purchase Sushi and all his cute accessories here! Well, I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I’ll be back on Monday with some pictures to share of the event! ((((HUGS))))
