Just A Note and Chocolate...Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #373~Sweet Inside


Ready for more decadent delights? Hope so! This week, we're inviting you to  play along with  Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #373~Sweet Inside. Look at that abundance of frosting goodness, set atop a jammy filling. These remind me of the cupcake tarts my grandma used to make: tart crust, a dollop of jam, cupcake batter, baked, then iced. Nothing like having your cake - and 'pie' - and eating it, too!

This week, we're sponsored by

The Greeting Farm is generously providing a prize of $20 gift certificate to our randomly chosen winner. Thank you!

My interpretation is as literal as it gets! My new little Just A Note die and stamp set came out for a play...

 and nestled inside: a little chunk o'chocolate!

Of course, I had to make another (and a few 'nothers more...). Neon inks on this one and yep, chocolate inside, too. I'm planning to make several of these little notes for my brother and sister-in-law to tuck into Ms. T's lunchbox now and again. Grade 1 is, after all, quite a journey....

What's super cool: Amy T is our Surprise Sweetie! Be sure to check out her 'Sweet Inside" card, along with those by my teamies:

Your turn! 
What Sweet Insides will you share with us?
Looking forward to seeing your creations in the gallery!

Thank you so much for spending part of your day with me; your visit brings me joy!


  1. Very cute little die and stamp set. Wonderful both of them, nothing nocer than a surprise chocolate or then.

  2. Hit the button too soon to fix error should have been 'or ten' not then lol

  3. Oh my word...*drool*... Cupcake, chocolate... such decadance is not good for the waistline and I LOVE it! No arguments from Ms T, for sure. Grade 1 is the beginning of a sweet journey.
