It is an honor to be apart of this blog hop with Berenice and all her wonderful friends! Thank you Berenice for hosting the show!!

Just in case, here is the order list of blogs you'll need to be hopping on....

Are you ready for my sweet piece of the cupcake?!? let's go....
I made a matching card and notepad... i've been saving this piece of cupcake paper just for today... well, because it fit the theme PERFECTLY...
This is my first try at a recessed window card... i've been seeing some many wonderful creations with this technique and wanted to try it too... you can get the instructions here... i'm a bit in the trial and error process and i didn't base my card on the exact instructions but it's the same concept.... my image choice for the blog hop is CC Designs Cupcake Brigitta, colored in copics and cut out with nesties using the out of box technique and paired with Studio G's clear stamp "hey there, cupcake." sentiment... i accidently cut the front layer a little bigger than suppose to but i fixed it up by adding strips of punched borders... can't see it in the pix but i added Diamond stickles to her wings and Glossy Accents to the frosting part of her cupcakes... and i also embossed a layer of CS (behind the image) with Cuttlebug's Swiss Dots folder...
The inside... with a scrap piece of DP matching the front of the card, i added to give the inside a burst of color too...
And this is the matching notepad with pen holder.... another new thing i've tried out!

Hope you like my cupcake creations and i hope it has sparked a creative boom for you to get crafty!! Time for you to hop on over to Lisa's blog and see what she has whipped up to share with you! Enjoy the rest of the hop and THANKS for coming by!!
