Hi Girls! First, I would to share something special with you. Kim, over at Memories in Thyme, selected me for this "I Like Your Style" blog award! I would like to send a special thanks to Kim and ALL of you girls who take time out of your busy days to visit my blog & leave a comment for me! :) Receiving continuous feedback from you girls really makes maintaining Cupcake's Creations all worth the while! Like Kim has said to her cyberfriends, I would like to pass this award on to ALL of you! Please feel free to take this award if you like. I would like to pass this award on to Julie, Eve, Chris, Samme Jo, JuJu (Julie) & Susan. If you haven't already been to these girls blogs, please feel free to do so for some FABULOUS inspiration!


Thanks for joining along with me for the PTI August Blog Hop! There is so much talent out there! Soooo many fall / autumn themed papercrafting creations! I am looking forward to a change in the season but this week's Dawn McVey's Raspberry Suite Color Challenge #15, RSCC15, color scheme has a very spring like / feminine feel to me. In no particular order I combined 3 challenges for this Tea Time card that I made for my sister, who is spending some quality time with my fuzzy babies while I am in San Diego on a mini vacation :)

1. Color Inspiration: RSCC15, 2. Sketch Inspiration: Card Positioning Systems #130, CPS130, and 3. Pile It On Challenge #12 - Good Things Come In Three, (I used 3 buttons & 3 flowers).

My girlfriend / co-worker, Stephanie, announced her wedding engagement last week! :) I made her this Congratulations card using the following 3 challenges:

1. Color Inspiration: RSCC15, 2. Sketch Inspiration: Laura's Sketch #33, 2S4Y33 & 3. Pile It On Challenge #12 - Good Things Come In Three, (I used 3 brads).
