Hey girlfriend!

Good morning!

It's been snowing like crazy here the last few days but even though it definitely looks like a winter wonderland out there, all cold and white, I'm in the mood for COLOR! So when I saw the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #39 photo for this week it was the perfect fit for how I'm feeling. The mix of chocolate and vanilla cupcakes with the pops of fun bright colors gave me the excuse I needed to ink up my new Mo Manning stamp that I got at ATS. Isn't it fun? I know Mo has a bunch of digi images but I'm a very happy girl if I can get an actual 'in-my-hands-won't-get-lost-when-the-computer-crashes' stamp. ;)
So the stamp may be new but I got to go WAY back in my stash for this 'old as the hills' but still much beloved KI Memories Birthday paper. The colors were just spot-on matches to the cupcake inspiration... gotta love it when that happens, it totally justifies hanging onto it for years. :)

Alrighty, so before I head off to work for the day just a reminder that the Chanter Heartsong candy is still going through tonight and I will announce a winner for it tomorrow. Oh and if you haven't been over to the ATS blog this week you'll want to head over for more chances to win Chanter and the other CC Designs stamps from the January release! And don't forget that the stamps go live Monday night at midnight EST... so exciting! :)

I'll be back tomorrow with some exciting news so stop by if you can. Later gators!

You're heading off to work just as I'm heading off to bed!!
I love this bright and cheery and mood-lifitng. We're in the midst of some hot, humid days right now and getting some much needed rain so this fits perfect. Not that I'm a fan of hot, humid days.....humidity is definitely NOT my friend.
Have fun at work....I'm seriously lovin be totally lazy on my hols - though I did clean out my pantry and bake some bread and work out my menu/shopping list for the week today, so wasn't totally chilled out. Maybe this week I'll finally get some creating done. :)
Then again, I still haven't caught up on all the Glee action yet!!
Hugs. xxx
