Hoppy Cupcake Day

Well, that's *any* day, right? ;-) Can you believe I had a Flopsey set that hadn't seen ink? Me either, LOL. That's My Favorite Challenge at My Favorite Things' Member Company Forum this week. I'm late getting it done--had out of town guests most of last week. W e really enjoyed having them here, but it really cut into my stamping time ;-)

I'm using Mercy's Tuesday Sketch #35--getting it in just under the wire.

My card base is Very Vanilla with layers of Kraft and Bermuda Bay, then patterned paper from a Making Memories 8 x 8 pad called Vintage Findings. Flopsey was stamped on a Perfect Paper Panel with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, colored with Copic markers and cut "out of the box". Then I matted him with Bermuda Bay and Kraft card stock and popped him up on 3M foam squares. I used liquid applique on the frosting and glued some seed beads on for "sprinkles". Ithink the rest is pretty self-explanatory. Oh, see those tiny little brads? I just found them at Michaels' this weekend. They are so stinkin' cute! So of course I got all the colors, right? Buttons are from My Favorite Things' Summer Collection.

I'm so glad you dropped in today!
