Is your weekend zipping by as quickly as mine? A couple more days tacked on to the weekend would be great; my 'to do' list is toooo long! That said, we're off on a hike today; the sun's finally shining and despite the numerous tasks I should tend to, I 'need' some nature time. Apparently, there's promise of a flank steak supper when we come home...totally all over that! My husband can be very persuasive....
Today, my fabulous team and I, along with our Surprise Sweetie, Michelle, invite you to PARTY with us over at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #377. Check out the yummy cupcakes we're teasing you with this time! Banners, balloons, gummy fishes...seriously cute!
Gerda Steiner Designs is our generous sponsor for this challenge; one lucky winner will receive a $20 gift certificate. Yet another great reason to join us (the first being Cupcake Inspirations are just plain fun *grin*)!
I'm bringing a card AND a gift...well, technically, a little envelope 'with' a gift to the party. Concord and 9th Eat Cake images appear on the card (I'm so smitten with this set!). The candles' colours and background stenciling were sparked by the photo colours...
Accompanying the card is my gift card envelope, sporting a little tag. The background tag was sponged with distress inks; the sentiment is from Concord and 9th's Lots of Blots...and there are, indeed, *lots* of blots in that set! Ideas percolating on how to use them...
Here's my party ensemble....
