TEAPOT TUESDAY CHALLENGE

Hi all!!! WOW! Yesterday was so very busy - I did not even get to blurf and that is NEVER a good thing - lol!! I did get everything else done though, and now I am prepping for a party at my house tonight, heehee!! It's either feast or famine around here, I tell ya! I did find time late last night (or early this morning, depending on how you look at things!) to play in the Teapot Tuesday challenge hosted by Cindy aka MotherMark over at Embellish-it Scrapbooking! I am fast becoming addicted to her challenges, they are fabulous! Why not pop on over and play too, there are some fabulously talented women over there! I am relatively new to their site, but I really feel at home there already, such warm and friendly folks over there. And, I am sure most of you know Cindy from SCS - the woman is a powerhouse creator, such talent, ACK!! So, I thought I would share the card I made based on the teapot for this week! I would have posted a pic of it, but I forgot to ask Cindy's permission yesterday (doh!) so you will have to go and check it out for yourself. I am going to give this card to my niece on Sunday - it will be her 6th birthday and she loves cupcakes so it will be perfect for her!! I will leave you the recipe, and then I am off to blurf with my cup o' joe in hand, and then I must get ready for tonight!! Thanks for stopping by -you all are FABULOUS!

I just love these little cupcakes - makes me want to go get some. hehehe with sprinkles. Nothing heals what ails you better than a bright cupcake with lots of frosting - ok well maybe caffiene and chocolate but I still like the cupcake!!

Vicki said...
