TECC25 Happy Cupcake Friday!!!



I'm sure I am not alone when I say that I LOVE Fridays (and have mentioned it lots of times before)!!! Well, this one is even MORE special to me!! I was thrilled to pieces to get a personal email from Taylor early Monday morning telling me she absolutely LOVED my card I submitted last weekend for her Cupcake Challenge 24 with the monkey chomping on cupcakes & asked me if I would like to be featured in this week's challenge on her blog!!

Umm...YESS of course I would! I was so excited because you should have seen/heard me as I was making that card (similar to this week's too) I was smiling & laughing at the creatures because I love to bring them to life on my cards!! I was hoping to myself that last week's card would be 'THE ONE' to really catch her eye & make me her Featured Sampler! Eureka! I loved this week's sketch just as much if not more than all the others she usually has because I LOVE circles! I knew the perfect color combination (thanks to Dawn Easton) to use for it too!! Then, I rifled through my stamps because I wanted to see if Yapples could pull the wagon from Favorite Teddy Bear full of cupcakes (PERFECT) and then the thought for them to be FREE came (have to thank my DH for this idea I was going to go with something else but I liked this better, thanks, Honey) I LOVE how this turned out!

Thanks for the cupcake honors Taylor!

WoW, that is so awesome, Donna! Taylor is a smart cookie, picking your monkey chomping on cupcakes card--I LOVED it too! In fact, I'm getting ready to buy some of my first of these funny little guys because you keep making them so irresistable, hehe! I love what you made today too! It's so cute and fun--and I take a free cupcake any day of the week, but on Friday, I'll take 2, lol! HUGS and big CONGRATS! You SO derserve this, girlfriend!
