Have a Magical Day...Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #403~Mythical

Hello and Happy Easter! May your day be filled with an abundance of blessings, as we celebrate the Resurrection.

My husband and I are at home, as this is his first 'real' weekend off in close to three months. Some much needed bike riding on his schedule! Next weekend will see us back to traveling one direction or another (I'm off to see my mom...yayyyyyy! Niece and nephew time totally included!). It's nice to have some 'us' time without any obligations, because come May, the bike races/officiating begin!

Today, we're launching Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #403~Mythical. Look at those darling unicorn cupcakes! I. Can't. Even! So stinkin' adorable!  I want a couple as pets!!!


The lucky winner this week will receive a $25 gift certificate from our generous sponsor: The Greeting Farm

My duo of cards today was inspired both by the cutie-pie...er, cutie-cake...unicorns, as well as the current challenge at Cards in Envy~Fantasy and Floral.  Please welcome my brand new Magical Unicorn from Your Next Stamp...isn't it pretty!!! I've set it atop my STAMPlorations Bloom Factory (so versatile!) stencil, inked in Worn Lipstick Distress Oxide; colouring is with prismas, following the colours from the image.


NOTE;  Honoured and thrilled to be In the Mailbox as Annie's Personal Favorite at Cards in Envy Challenge~Fantasy and Floral THANK YOU!

Smitten as I am with the unicorn, a second card had to be made, this time with the palette from Colour Throwdown #438



This time, the background is Abandoned Coral, and again, the colouring is with prismas....



I believe a certain niece (and quite possibly nephew) will be allllll over these unicorns! And I bet they'll be sporting rainbow manes and tails!


Mythical...all kinds of possibilities, beyond unicorns, as you'll see from my fabulous team-mates. Please leave them some love, then share your dragons, abominable snowmen, fairies, Nessies (and if you're from Canada, Ogopogos), phoenixes,, Pegasus-es, Krakens...and what have you...with us!

See you in the gallery!

  1. Oh my goodness gracious, those unicorn cupcakes are beyond adorable! I don't think you can look at them and not smile. :) See? Your cards? The same sentiment! Beyond adorable and most definitely smile inducing. They look like so much fun to color. And you've definitely colored them so well. I hope you and your hubby have a beautiful (sun shiny) day together! Big hugs! Happy Easter and Happy Spring! :)
