Cupcake Inspirations 200th Challenge Celebration Blog Hop!


Hello! I am happy to be joining the Cupcake Inspiration Design Team past and present to help celebrate the 200th challenge! CIC was my very first design team, and it will always hold a place in my crafty heart.  You should have arrived here from Vanessa's blog!

To help celebrate the 200th challenge, CIC is giving away a $200 prize package to one lucky winner! To enter all you have to do is visit the main Cupcake Inspirations blog, and pick a past cupcake inspiration picture and create a new card! Also, each of the design team members past and present have prizes to be given away on each of their blogs as well. Sweet!! I am excited to be sponsored by a company dear to my heart:





Karen, the owner of YNS is graciously giving away a $15 gift certificate to one lucky hopper! To be eligible to the prize all you have to do is leave a comment on THIS blog post! Easy peasy! I will pick a winner using random.org on Sunday morning, March 10th.

Now, let me show you one of my very favorite Cupcake Inspirations pictures from the past 199 challenges:

CIC #116
I just love lady bugs, and I had the perfect stamp set for this picture! Here is my card:


CIC200

That cute ladybug is from the YNS stamp set "Smiley Happy Critters".




The Polaroid frame was created using the YNS metal die: "Insta-Love Die and Stamp Combo".






                                                I am happy you stopped by!!  Your next stop on the hop is Zulma's Blog.

Have a wonderful day!

Good grief..your blog is wonderful! I'm supposed to be here on the hop, but I got severely distracted by all your gorgeous cards!
