Cupcake Party!!

Happy Wednesday everyone!  I’m headed down to South Carolina today and I left around 6:30 am so I hope to be at my friend Pat’s house by 2:30ish.  I play a game in the car with the GPS who I call Glinda, LOL.  Why Glinda? Cuz’ sometimes she's a smart & good witch and sometimes she’s NOT Winking smile She has told me to turn off bridges, do u-turns on highways and more---so I do believe she might smoke crack when I’m not looking, LOL!  So Glinda the GPS and I play a game—she gives me her estimated time she thinks I will arrive and I try to beat her, hee hee.  So far I have beat her 90% of the time and yes I am CRAZY but its something to do on long drives. My usual goal is to shave off at least 20 mins from her time—coming back from North Carolina I shaved off 35 mins which was fabulous—woohoo.  So I think she might be a tad mad at me right now but we’ll see tomorrow how she does!  And yes I do think I’m sane most of the time but come on don’t we all play games now & again to keep us from being bored or sleeping!?  Don’t worry I have it all planned---if I get pulled over by a cop I’ll just tell him my GPS was smoking crack and I was on a mission to beat her ETA while speeding….errrr driving!  Whatcha’ think? Perhaps he would put my bum in a cell for the night huh? LOL—hubby would love that!  He always says he’ll never be surprised when the call comes in that I have been hauled off by the police (big meanie he is, hee hee) and that my first call better be to our lawyer and not him—HA HA!  Nah—I’m smarter than that rightWinking smile


-7 Kids College Fund has a SALE on all Whiff of Joy stamps as she is discontinuing carrying them.  So they are all 25% off HERE and use code WOJCLEARANCE!  Also new Tim Holtz paper rosette dies are HERE—love these, want these bad, lol!

-Don’t forget to join in on the CMC Challenge—it ends on Friday night and someone will be a lucky winner.  New challenge will be posted Friday night as well---we have a copic challenge every 2 weeks---everyone is always welcome!!


A Cupcake Party—Yum!!!


Today is a fun 7 Kids Challenge and our hostess is Tori Hemingway---she’s challenged us to create something Hot, Hot, Hot—summery! (and NO Magnolia stamps allowed)  Well my project isn’t hot per se, LOL, but it is summery and perfect for a summer birthday me thinks.  You can see the current challenge HERE and all the DT projects as well—hope you’ll join in with us!


I used this super cute CC Designs Swiss Pixies “Cupcake Birgitta”—isn’t she a doll?  I love to color these cuties—they offer so much space to color that you can really play around with techniques.  I used papers from Kaisercraft and my layout is actually a sketch challenge at Card Positioning Systems this week. I love a pink and green combo don’t you? So girly & fresh!!  The leaves were created with a new Spellbinders die called “Foliage” that is fabulous—I inked the edges of the leaves and added stickles to them to make them sparkle lots.  The die mats behind my image are both a Spellbinders pendant (pink) and the white is a Marianne Designs die.  A few Prima flowers, ribbon and pearls finish this cutie off.


I colored her with Copics—YG25,YG03,G20 / RV17,RV13,RV10 / E11,E00,R20 / E25,E31,E50 /C1,C00.  And then some stickles to her stockings, wings and cupcake frosting!  Make sure to hop over to the 7 Kids Challenge Blog to see the rest of the DT’s fabulous projects!  See ya on Friday!
