Tickled Pink Stamps Sponsorships: Cupcake Crafts and Card Makin' Mamas

I'm very glad it's Friday, but it's a sad day. For the second time this year I've had to say good bye to a beloved furry friend. My cat Poe, who was only nine, was diagnosed with kidney disease about a month and a half ago. Despite a special diet and rounds of antibiotics he just seemed to continue to deteriorate. I am broken-hearted as he was a sweet, loving cat and so good with my small man. He will be missed. And though he's gone, he has left his paw prints forever on our hearts.


I'm sorry to start off on such a sad note, but PoePoe deserved a loving tribute. Now on to the card I have for you. Tickled Pink Stamps is sponsoring two challenges this week, and I have combined them into one {PINK}-elicious card. The sketch is from Cupcake Craft Challenges, which actually started on Monday so you only have a few days left to play along, but it's a good one so you should try to make time for it! You can see Cupcake 155... Faberonny Sketcharoony and their design team's creations here. The second challenge TPS is sponsoring is Card Makin' Mamas and their challenge is... you guessed it - PINK!!!

As part of the Pinkette design team, I have used one of the new Lil Haunting Pinkettes for this project. This is Fairy Coraline, and she is fabulous fun to color and add sparkle to! Here I have used my Copics and Prismacolor Art Markers to make her pretty in pink. I was very excited to use my new Fleur de Lis Nesties that I got for my birthday! I stamped both sentiments onto Creamy Caramel card stock from Stampin' Up in Memento Tuxedo Black ink then distressed the edges of the larger one and sponged them both with Tim Holtz Distress Inks. Then I added flowers, a bit of bling, and a die cut corner embellishment. I have to say that this was one of those times where it all just came together perfectly and I love the result! This fairy will be wishing a co-worker a very happy birthday today! And I think she will be well received.

Thank you for looking and be sure to come by tomorrow for the Sassy Studio Designs new release blog hop. You could win some Sassy images just for leaving comments on the design team members' blogs. The design team will also be chatting on the party blog from 7-8pm PDT (10-11pm for those of us on the East coast).

Hope you have a good day...
