Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #111

Happy Sunday stamping friends.  This has been a low key do nothing kind of Sunday for me.  Well... do nothing except make cards!!  I've been playing catch up for several days now and after I get these posts completed, I will be caught up!!!  {happy sigh}!  Now, on to other fun Sunday things to do.  One of the funnest is joining the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.  As usual, there are some terrific inspiration cuppies that you'll love!  Here's the card I made for this challenge...

Do you love this little image or what??  That birdie with her house and flowers is so springy to me, perhaps even summery.  OK, on to the inspiration photo.  Here it is...

LOVE it!!  Those baby birds crack me up, as they do IRL when they are making a commotion for their supper.  Beak straight up in the air and opened as wide as it will go.  When they do get a morsel from mama bird, it's a quick swallow and back to tweetin' with open beak again.  And it's great how the baby bird cupcakes have some toasted coconut to make it look more like they're sitting in a nest.  Kewl!!

Our fabulous sponsor this week is Robyn's Fetish Digital Stamps and More.  They very kindly shared a few of these birdie images with our DT so we could play around with them.  And what fun it was coloring up this sweet image.  As I was coloring it up, I was thinking and thinking about what DPs I wanted to use with the colors I'd chosen.  I was having a terrible time when all of a sudden... I spied this beautiful piece of Prima paper called Parsley Place from their Madeline Collection.  Of course, that's my granddaughter's name so I just had to love it!!  This is one of the wonderful papers I'd won from Chelsea's last blog candy.  It was a super lovely candy and I was sooooo thrilled that I was the lucky winner!  Be sure you don't miss any of Chelsea's cards and candy.  You won't be disappointed.

Oh, and by the way... the winner of the random drawing for this challenge will be awarded either 5 digital stamps or 4 digital stamps and one paper set of their choosing.  Doesn't that sound great??  Wish I could enter!  haha!!
