Hope Stamps Eternal Yummy challenge!!

ETA: I feel like a total fool and I apologize profusely!! We have a guest Sweetie this week, Anna Fiebelkorn, so please, take a minute and go and cruise her blog Scrap and Crap (isn't that a fun name??!!) and let her know what a doofus I am - c'mon I know you want to relay that message ....

Oh my goodness, my internet is the stupidest thing on this planet! I am not kidding one little iota......I called them and they told me someone would call me - that was two days ago and it is still being stupid so I am just uploading and doing what I can as FAST as I can!!

Soooo......enough is Sunday and that means another fabulous
Cupcake Inspiration Challenge from Hope Stamps Eternal!!

Here is the wonderful yummy thing that we do. Rachel shows us a picture of a cupcake and we (the HSE Sweeties) get terrifically inspired by said cupcake, because we are just that way, and we make a creation that is based off the inspiration cupcake! Sound easy? Well, it IS!! and we would love to have you join us! Smiley from ETA: YOU DO NOT HAVE TO USE CUPCAKES IN YOUR CREATION! Anything is acceptable!

Just create anything that inspires you after looking at the cupcake photo below, upload a picture of it to your favorite gallery such as Splitcoaststampers or Paper Craft Planet, use today's key word CIC22 (Cupcake Inspiration Challenge 22) and then come back to the Hope Stamps Eternal blog and leave your link with Mr. Linky!!

Here is this yummo mummo cupcake photo!

and here is my card:

Don't you just love it!!!??? I mean without getting toooooo gaga, isn't it just lovely??!! I just love the buttons and the sentiment (from Papertrey Ink) and everything about it! I think it is just yummy!

The Cuttlebug folder is an old one (as far as old folders go!) but Rachel has tons of the NEW CUTTLEBUG in the store as well as th enew 6 x 6 pads of Cosmo Cricket!

The edge punch is a Martha Stewart border punch and there are new ones available at the store too, along with the drippy gooey Hallowe'en punch!! I also saw that punch used with brown cardstock and a pig stamp - MUD!! How cool is that/?!

Thanks for coming around and don't forget to check out how the other HSE Sweeties interpreted this photo today!!
