Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #109

Good Sunday morning friends.  As you're reading through this, I'll be lazing away at my son's house.  Hopefully getting waited on hand and foot.  OK... I know... that's a bit too much to ask for!!  haha!  So glad you popped in today as it's time for another Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.  This week's inspiration photo is fun and I hope you'll join in and play along.  Here's what I came up with...

Man... I just looked at my last post and this card looks exactly like that one!!!  Well, not exactly, but the same color scheme, which makes them seem the same!  YIKES!!  Oh well... it's a good color combo!!  haha!  I hope you like it.  Now let's see where my inspiration came from...

Aren't they adorable and fun??  And so many directions your inspiration might take you.  The caption with this photo is 'Mom and daughter cakes' so I thought it would be very appropriate to use this fun stamp which is from 'Designs by Leere'.  I purchased this a couple years ago from Stampavie.  Its name is 'Mother and Daughter'.

Our sponsor for this week is the very cool Anita Be Stampin.  Anita has some wonderful stamps and images in her store and she's just the sweetest person.  I hope you'll jump over and take a look.  And if you enter our challenge, you'll be eligible to win a prize from her.  Great, right?

So fun! :) Great card!


Great card! I hope you are getting waited on, you deserve it.

I noticed that I too use stuff over and over for awhile, same papers or same embellies and then all of a sudden I change when something else catches my fancy. Kind of explains all those unused old packs of paper!
