BBTB2 Cupcake Challenge and Blog Hop!


WooHoo! Time for another BBTB2 challenge and this week's the Blog Hop! If you've come from the fabulous Jeri's Blog you're on the right track, but if not, you may wish to start at BBTB2 so you don't miss a thing. The sweet and wonderfully talented Carole chose the cupcake from Celebrations, although if you wish to play along this week, any cupcake will do. I've been in sort of a mood lately and wanted to do something a little different so I dragged out my (creepy as my DH calls it, but I think it's cute) baby face stamp. The inspiration for the card came from my new Once Upon a Princess cartridge with the words "Baby Cakes" on it. I made a shaped card in DS using the border feature from the Celebrations cupcake. The pretty paper is Baby Boy from Heidi Grace. I crimped the cupcake bottoms and cuttled the frosting with D'Vine Swirls then inked just a bit.


Of course I popped the layers, then had a ball finding the fun embellies. I'm especially fond of the Alpha Beads spelling "YUM", 'cause aren't babies (and cupcakes) just too yummy for words? Anyway, be sure to stop by BBTB2 to see all of the delicious cards by my DT sisters and if you haven't been following the hop, be sure to start at the beginning, because there are prizes to be had. There's even a special one from Everyday Cricut (formerly Holidays with the Cricut, thanks, girls) if you sign up to follow BBTB2 and leave a comment there as well. My Blog Hop candy is a $30.00 gift certificate to Custom Crops and all you have to do is leave me a (preferably sweet LOL) comment. I'll be drawing the winner on Saturday, March 6. Now you're off to visit the uber talented Krista's blog. You can always count on her to bring a smile to your face. Enjoy!

  89. This card is just gorgeous....you should take that stamp and stick a copy of it on the visor of his car so that it is right where the hubby lease expects to see it. or blow a copy of it up and stick it on the back of the bathroom door so he feels like he is being watched. i am rotten. lol.
