Cupcakes, anyone?

Right now it seems everywhere you look you see cupcakes - and let me tell you I just can't get enough of them. Cupcakes are kind of like the whole owl thing for me - I love them but I'm very picky on which ones to get. The Angel Company released the Spring Magalogue, Serendipity in February and in it is the most ADORABLE cupcake set EVER, called Little Cupcake!! When I was at Winter Round Up last weekend one of the challenges was to create something using that set. There were quite a few entries and both of mine were chosen as some of the judges favorites which is pretty cool!

This one is pink & brown - I stamped flowers on the pink using VersaMark and I used my Copics to color. I have to thank my friend, Sandy for letting me borrow quite a bit of stuff (like paper & brads) as I didn't pack that stuff! I didn't realize that we'd have time to play so I packed rather light! My next creation is a tag - you might recognize the layout from a CAC sketch a week ago.

It's kind of hard to tell but I stamped "my little cupcake" all over the purple cardstock using VersaMark. I also colored this cupcake with my Copics. Here's a close up:

Isn't it Yum-olicous??? It looks good enough to eat ;o) Maybe I need to go make some cupcakes - it's VERY cold and crummy outside which makes it a perfect day to bake. Nahhh, instead I think I'll stamp - less calories and more filling, LOL!!! I think that should be a motto somewhere don't you?

Have a great day! Thank you for all your comments - I appreciate every one of them and so enjoy reading them! Thanks for looking!!

Janna said she told you we had 18 inches of snow!!!

It is crazy here!! I put pictures of it on my blog, but they do not really show a true picture of what it was, but they do show you that my daughters Barbie jeap was completely covered in snow!!!
