Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #95

Hello friends and happy Sunday.  It's supposed to snow around these here parts today, but I'm hoping they're wrong about that.  They are so often you know... wrong I mean.  Don't fail me know weatherpeople!!  teehee!  Seeing it's Sunday, it's time for another Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.  Here's what I came up with this week...

I just love this image with mommy sheep and baby lambie.  I must have bought it two or more years ago, but this is the first time I've inked her up!  Yeesh... that's pitiful!  I know, I know... quit babbling and show us the inspiration.  You ask for it... you got it.

Like I said before, sweet, sweet, sweet.  And fits perfectly with this time of year.  You may have already noticed that I chose my image and embossing folder because of the curly-cue frosting on this cupcake.  I thought they both worked so well.  And I used the inverted side of the embossed paper as that also matches the frosting.  Then I worked in the colors and the little red hearts.  I am pleased with it and had a lot of fun working it  up.

As usual, I have to apologize for the pinks in my photo.  IRL, they match perfectly.  I guess the fabric just photographs differently than paper???  I dunno... just guessing.  Anyway... sorry for what looks like clashing pinks.  Ugh!

Our sponsor for this week is Scrappin Doodles.  The lucky winner will receive a $10 gift certificate.  How's about that???
