A buggy blog hop

Hey everyone!

Today I'm participating in the very first Tiddly Inks Buggy Blog Hop so if you've come here from Debi's blog you're on the right track.
If not then you may want to head over to the Tiddly Inks blog for the entire list of hoppers because three lucky commenters/bloggers will be eligible to win prizes, ranging from a yummy scrap pack from Betty Boo to gift certificates from Tiddly Inks. :)

My card today uses the adorable Happy Bugg digi and just look at that cupcake! Oy, I seem to be continuing the sweets theme through this week and it's starting to feel like one big tease. ;)
I love vanilla cupcakes with chocolate frosting so I could just imagine the chocolatey goodness when I was coloring this up. I've gotta keep telling myself to be strong Amy, be strong! LOL
I also used fabric strips that I dyed and tied into bows as accents on this so it would work with this week's Tiddly Inks fabric challenge as well. I think they add a festive/birthday present like feel to the card. :)

Okey dokey, your next and final stop in the hop is over to Betty Boo's... thanks for stopping by!
