Happy Sunday!!!!! Wow, I hardly ever post a card on Sundays, but today is a SPECIAL day! It is my very first time joining Rachel and team in HSE cupcake inspiration challenge. This is a great type of challenge for me, as it is not my "typical" challenge, and forces me a bit out of my comfort zone.
Today's Cupcake inspiration was chosen by Lori King
. On my card today, I drew inspiration from the colors on from this weeks Cupcake. I used my new Madelyn stamp from the Greeting Farm, and combined that with Basic Greys new Sugar Rush designer paper, and for the first time, I used these sweet blossom flowers on my card. Do you think I went overboard?
Not only was my card made for HSE's cupcake challenge, but I also had a very special thank you card in mind. You see, while I was in CHA, I had the chance to meet Diana Crick (The owner of Scor-pal, and Magnolia-licous). She is just the sweetest women, and oh so funny. She had treated a few of us to dinner and I just wanted to thank her for being so wonderful and sweet. She is a very creative women, I hope she likes my card, even know it's not Magnolia (hehehe).
I did want to share one more very special card with you. My daughter Abbey wanted to play along with me yesterday, so I stamped her an image and even let her use my copics (I know, I got weak). I think all in all, she did a really good job. Not so bad for a 8yr old little girl. She will be very excited when she sees it on my blog (Good job Doodle Bug)!
Well, that is all for me today. We would love to have you play along this week! Make sure to add a direct link to your NEW creation on Mr Linky on the HSE challenge blog by Saturday, Feb 13th at 9 pm MT. If you upload to a public gallery like SCS or PCP make sure to use keyword CIC44 so we can easily find you. Remember, no cupcake stamps are required!
