I want to remind you about the Hope Stamps Eternal Design Team Call, you can learn all about it here or scroll down one post. Don't wait go now and check it out!

Good morning, this is the last day of my Christmas break, it is back to work for me tomorrow. You know what that means less stamping, creating, and blogging...I will miss visiting your blogs. I will still do all three of these things with every little minute that I have free.
I have created for you today a more pastel card, I thought the little cupcake was sooooo cute. What better way to be inspired but than with cupcakes...yummy...remember the Hope Stamps Eternal Design Team Call...go check it out! I used some sweet designer papers from Basicgrey. The yellow one is from the Nook and Pantry collection and the other one is the Basicgrey new paper pack called Sugar Rush, I luv this pack so fun and cheery. I used two different stamps to make a bouquet of flowers, the first one is called Blossoms by Imaginisce and the other is called Thank You. I colored the flowers with copics and then added a sweet little Zva Crystal to the centers, they are so sparkly and pretty. I used a notebook punch for the one panel and a corner rounder for the tab with the sentiment grateful on it. I added distressing and ribbon tied with a button and twine. I used the Stamps and Smiles Sketch, SASSC46.
Be sure to check out the other sweeties creations.
