Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #28

It's Sunday and that means it is time for another delicious Cupcake Inspiration Challenge from Hope Stamps Eternal. Check out today's fabulous cupcakes!

I used Waltzingmouse Stamps "Say it with Style" stamp set again today since it is laying out and because I just happen to LOVE it!

I mentioned that there were tons of everyday and not so everyday sentiments and this is the not so everyday sentiment. I should probably make up a bunch of these with this saying and send it to every blogger out there because I am so awful at leaving comments and yet I expect everyone to leave one here.....

I honestly think I am going to put my requisition into God to give me another 3 hours in the day so that I can play with my grandchildren AND get my commenting done AND play Farmville AND play Bejewelled (new and improved!) ...I did put my grandchildren first but really, I suck sometimes......

Enough with beating myself up.....actually I began a yoga class last week and that is painful enough....sorry waaaay off track!!

This gorgeous Basic Grey paper, Indian Summer went perfectly with these cupcakes so I matched it up with Papertrey Ink's Scarlet Jewel.

I thought I was grabbing the doily lace punch but this one turned out okay also......I wrapped some May Arts ribbon around the card and tacked on the flower from "Say it with Style".

I love - and you know it!- the Zva Creative Crystals so I had to add them to underline the sentiment and one big one to the middle of the flower! The sentiment is stamped with Papertrey Ink's Fresh Snow and then embossed with clear embossing powder.

Everyone is invited to play along in the challenge!! If you do, be sure to link your creation to Mr. Linky on the HSE blog.

Every week, Rachel picks the top 5 and highlights them on the blog!!
