The Corrosive Challenge #117 - Cupcakes



It's Sunday and that means there's plenty to be excited about! First, the world didn't end yesterday as predicted! Phew... That means I can go on crafting! And enjoying all the other things in life that make me happy... We all know #1 on that list would be my son, but sweet treats are ranked fairly high as well! lol And that ties in nicely with the theme of this week's Corrosive Challenge - Cupcakes! Simply use the delicious confection somewhere on your project to qualify for the prize from Queen Kat Stamps and to be in the running for guest designer.

I remembered that I had this sweet, but toxic Halloween cupcake stamp from Impression Obsession that had never been inked up. Since Halloween is my favorite holiday, I decided it wasn't too early to make a card for the occasion. The image actually contains three cupcakes, each with a different creepy topping, but due to size constraints I opted to use just one. My sketch is courtesy of Sketch Saturday (SS156).

It has been a busy, on-the-go weekend here.... And it looks like the trend will continue right through this coming week. This morning, for instance, I have to make a card and bake oatmeal chocolate chip cookies before we head off to a graduation party. I'll need to get moving and start my day soon, but I wanted to thank you for stopping by! Enjoy!
