It's a Irish Cupcake Kinda Day!




Happy Sunday. Thanks for stopping by today on this glorious day....well, not so glorious here, as it has been pouring the whole weekend, but it does make good crafting weather though :)



Today is Sunday and Sundays here at Scrap-creations = Hope Stamps Eternal cupcake inspiration challenge. Today's cupcake comes courtesy of Martha Stewart living.

When I first saw the Cupcake, I immediately thought of Saint Paddy's day, but I also wanted my card to work for this challenge, as well as this weeks Greeting farm challenge, and another card for this weeks challenge at "Going Grey" with Scrap-Creations. which are all Birthday/celebration themes. So, I broke out my Origins Basic Grey paper pack, and paper pieced Ian to look a little "Irish". I am not sure I got what I was looking for, but I think he looks darling in his "get up". If you read my blog regularly, you know that I wasn't much of a fan for this Basic Grey Origins paper pack, but I have to say, I think it may be one of my favorite. The more I use it the more I love it.

SO: my question for you................which basic Grey paper pack is your LEAST favorite and WHY?

We have some big news over at Hope Stamps Eternal. We have a new sweetie....I am delighted to introduce you to Karen Giron. She is extremely talented, and we are thrilled to have her as part of our team. Welcome Karen.

We would love to have you play along this week! Make sure to add a direct link to
your NEW creation on Mr Linky at Hope Stamps Eternal by Saturday, March 20th at 9 pm MT. If you upload to a public gallery like SCS or PCP make sure to use keyword CIC50 so we can easily find you. Remember, no cupcake stamps are required! Rachel will post the Top 5 next Sunday.
