Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #38!

Well, good Sunday morning to you and welcome to another Cupcake Inspiration Challenge! Everyone is invited to play along in the challenge and if you do, be sure to link your creation to Mr. Linky on the Hope Stamps Eternal blog.

Every week, Rachel picks the top 5 links and highlights them on the blog!! If you upload to SCS or PCP, be sure to use this week's keyword: CIC38.

Here is this week's cupcake picture - oh my just look at all those gorgeous reds and greens - glorious Christmas colours!! Wouldn't your tongue just look hideous? lol!

Well, I still had some stamped images of Vivi from The Greeting Farm line of stamps, laying on my desk and I needed a Christmas tag for a gorgeous VAT of jelly beans for Holly's math teacher, so I coloured her up for this week's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #38!

I apologize for the lousy photo, it was early morning when we were leaving and I had not got a picture yet........thus the crapola dark picture!

I coloured her up with my copics, adding Icicle stickles to the white part of her hat ! So pretty and shimmery!

I added a Zva Creative Crystal Snowflake to the tag since it is winter and all - and these crystals are just gorgeous! - so bright and ...well, crystally!! - for lack of a
better word! lol!

The designer paper is from Basic Grey June Bug - some of those papers in that 6x6 paper pad are gorgeous Christmas colours! AND the new Basic Grey papers and accessories are in at the store - Origins and Sugar Rush!!

Take a red, green and white ride over to the other Design Team members blogs - and don't forget to pop into The Red Haired Girl! Elena is our guest designer this month!!
