for years now it's been bringin' him back... milk and cookies...
I know, I know... technically today's card features cupcakes, not cookies but these were the most closely related Christmas song lyrics that I could think of. ;)
So how is everyone this morning? Good I hope.
I'm gearing up for a busy day at work but before I head off I thought I would share this little card. A couple of days ago I came across the Cupcake Inspiration challenge #36 and fell in love with the idea of taking inspiration from a photo of cupcakes. I liked the freedom of how you could interpret different parts of it to make a card and I had every intention of being really loose with the theme because you don't actually have to use cupcake images. But then as I was falling asleep this little character popped into my head and I had to get her down on paper as soon as I woke up yesterday. Thus Red Velvet Cupcake Princess was born... so much for doing a loose interpretation because how could I not put her on a card? ;) Maybe the next go round I won't be so literal...
And you wanna know the best part of all this? I showed my sister this card and the inspiration picture and it inspired her to make some actual red velvet cupcakes (she loves to bake and decorate cakes). Now I hope she brings me some after work today... yum! :)
