Here is another card I did for some challenges... http://cardztv.blogspot.com/2011/01/cupcake-challenge.html. This challenge asked us to use a cupcake. I love this blog for all of her super cute card ideas! Then on Fantabulous Cricut, http://fantabulouscricut.blogspot.com/2011/01/challenge-me-monday-43.html, their challenge was to use something sweet. And here, http://stampchallenges.blogspot.com/, they challenged us to stamp something sweet. Since I'm not much of a stamper, I just stamped the Happy Happy Birthday along the bottom. (Stamps are not my strong feature, I need to get some clear stamps because I can never get it "straight" and it always bugs me. LOL. That's why you see very few stamped images on my projects. I see all these amazing projects that people do with stamps, but I've never had success with them. I need to take a stamping class and buy some copics and then maybe I'd get better at it! LOL. I did just however order some Peachy Keen face stamps and I'm excited to give them a try and I've been eyeing a few sets of cute animal sentiments from a couple of designers like the Pink Stamper too. Here's to hoping my newly ordered Peachy Keen stamps work great!) It's kinda hard to see but I used stickles on my cupcake and it provides just the right amount of sparkle.

Happy Birthday Robyn!
On my reader, I found a challenge at http://www.imaginisceblog.com/ that wanted us to use pink, blue and yellow, but now that I go to their blog I can't find the post on that....strange....one of their designers I follow posted about it and it shows up on her blog but it doesn't show up on the actual site hosting the challenge.... oddly enough, it happened to me TWICE as another designer wanted us to use a punch on their challenge but again when I followed the blog from the designer to the site, it wasn't listed there. Is it a full moon out or what???? LOL. I guess I won't be entering those afterall. Lesson learned, make sure I actually follow to the hosting blog BEFORE I include them in my project. That's ok....it was fun to make the card anyway. :-)
