Bleep, bloop, bleep. Translation...

time for another Cupcake Inspiration challenge!

Sorry I have to squeeze this post in between all the candy fun, but this week's CIC challenge is a total blast and deserved its own time to shine. :)
If you've been looking for some motivation to make that perfect boy card just check out the cool inspiration Rachel has found . Don'tcha just love that cutie robot? It was the perfect excuse to pull out this 'build-a-bot' stamp set that I've had for months yet had left totally unloved... tsk, tsk.
Once I put him together I thought he needed a friend and Space Ian was the perfect choice. They make quite the pair if I do say so myself! :)

We would love to have you play along this week! Make sure to add a direct link to your NEW creation via the Mr Linky on Rachel's blog by Saturday, Jan 30th at 9 pm MT. If you upload to a public gallery like SCS or PCP make sure to use keyword CIC43 so we can easily find you. Remember, no cupcake stamps are required. Rachel will post the Top 5 next Sunday!

And don't miss what Rachel and the rest of her sweeties have created:

~Colleen, ~Rachel, ~Teresa
