Good morning!! uhm......afternoon....yes I am horribly late for this challenge and my excuse is ....nothing.....We had people for supper last night and I almost choked on my butter tart when I remembered about the Hope Stamps Eternal challenge sorry to all my teammates, although a little birdie told me that maybe we are all NOT on the ball today.....

Here is what we do every week (usually on time). Rachel shows us a picture of a cupcake and we (the HSE Sweeties) get terrifically inspired the cupcake and then we make a creation that is based off the inspiration cupcake! We would love to have you join us! Smiley from

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 the key word CIC26 (Cupcake Inspiration Challenge 26) and then come back to the Hope Stamps Eternal blog and leave your link with Mr. Linky!!

Here is today's cupcake photo - isn't it gorgeous!!

This cute little girlie is all grown up Anya from The Greeting Farm, and I decided to use the colours as my inspiration today, and got out my Basic Grey Indian Summer paper.

I used Crystal Stickles to highlight the Zva Creative flowers on the ribbon and also the flowers in the stamp and then I kind of wrecked the lace on her dress by adding stickles to that....dang it.....

I used a green Zva Creative Crystal Dot on the sentiment, but it wasn't green enough so I took my copic marker and went over it a couple of times to darken it - LOVE doing that!!

I also used the Martha Stewart arch lattice punch but I wanted to use my doily lace punch but I think that someone has borrowed it and not returned it......or it could possibly be in the mess somewhere in this room......I am so unorganized when I work.......ugh (again)

Well, I hope you were a bit inspired by my card and please take a boo around to the other Sweeties in the design team and see how they were inspired by these delicious cupcakes......I'm on my way to get another butter tart! yee haw!!
