Mmmmmm... good morning! I can't even begin to tell you how nice it's been to just veg for the first time in ages and I'm hoping to do more of the same today too. :)
And the best part of having nothin' to do is getting the time to play and go where ever the inspiration takes me, which was perfect timing since I had today's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge card to work on.
As soon as Rachel sent me the cupcake photo for today I was in love with the deliciously, rich color combo going on and I knew I wanted my card to have an image that was both cute (cause if you haven't guessed by now, I'm all about the cute) and kinda elegant as well.
Then she came to me... sitting right there on the edge of my imagination, and because I had the time I sat down and put her on paper. Ahhhh... perfect, exactly what I was wanting for this week's inspiration card. I think she looks like she could be Ginger Fairy's sister so I'm calling her Coriander Fairy... once I start with the whole spice theme I just gotta run with it (I'm OCD like that). ;)
The rest of the card came together super quick because I had the amazing goodie box that Rachel sent me for being her guest Sweetie this month. It was full of wonderful things like these new Basic Grey Origins papers, Diamond Stickles and beautiful ribbons amongst many other things that I'll be using on more CIC cards this month... thanks again Rachel! :)
And because I have used all this fun new stuff on the card it also fits the theme for this week's Flutter by Challenge as well!
So you all know the drill... 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 16th at 9 pm MT. If you upload to a public gallery like SCS or PCP make sure to use keyword CIC41 so we can easily find you. Remember, no cupcake stamps are required and Rachel will post the Top 5 next Sunday!
And in the meantime be sure to check out what the rest of the gals have created this week too! :)
