Happy Day...

Since you get more joy out of giving joy to others, you should put a good deal of thought into the happiness that you are able to give. -Eleanor Roosevelt Today is the 100th Sunday I have hosted the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge! I can not believe how many amazing cupcakes are there for our inspiration. Each week it is a struggle to pick just one cupcake, and then to choose the Top 5 from so many amazing creations each week!

I have met so many wonderful stampers, my Design Team, the Sponsors, the participants...I just love stampers!!!!

For this week's Big 100th Challenge we have 4 sponsors! Including a Super Fun new sponsor The Octopode Factory!!! Check out the CIC Blog for all the information!

This week's cupcakes are soft pastel, Spring inspired I grabbed the sweet seated Miss Anya Dressy with her adorable frilly dress and Spring hat. I wanted to use the aqua color from the photo and the soft pinks and yellows from the frosting so I grabbed a soft piece from the Basic Grey Lemonade paper pack and got to work. I fussy cut the Anya so she could sit on the ribbon and CASEd this week's CASE Study card.

  12. Hi Rachel -
    I'm so glad you've joined us in the Sugar Creek Hollow challenge this week. Your card is adorable! My favorite element is the way you've perched that darling image on the ribbon as though she's sitting on top - a clever design. Your papers and the colors of this card are so pretty. I do hope you'll return and play again in the SCH challenges.
