My wonderful DT and I, along with our immensely talented Guest Designer, Vicki
, and two special guests from our sponsor, Your Next Stamp
- are inviting you to play along with Cupcake Inspirations Challenge #343
Aren't these cupcakes a-dor-a-ble? They remind me of one of my favourite rides in Disneyland (from a visit years upon years ago): "It's a small world, after all; It's a small world, after all, It's a small world after all, It's a small, small world." Okay, now that I've planted that song in your head...
Moving on to my inspiration. I'm not going to lie: I struggled with this challenge for two reasons: cute small child images are not part of my collection and the image I really, really wanted to use wouldn't work because my printer wasn't cooperating! Grrr...Oh well, I'll save it for a down-the-road challenge. After spending hours fretting, fussing and recycling (Mr. Recycle has a full tummy), I went in the only direction I could think of: focusing on the word "WORLD" and came up with these...(be warned: a bit of a stretch. I dub myself the DT Oddball for this challenge!)
The first batch of the 20 Valentines I'm making for my nephew's daycare pals, using Lawn Fawn's Monster Mash, Neat and Tangled Ink Splat, The Alley Way Stamps' Learning Curve, and Poppy Stamps' Mainstreet tag dies. Given the colours and glitter, I think these will be going to the girls...
Hope you don't think I'm 'out of my mind' with my 'out of this world' tags and that they brought a smile to your face!
Soooooo...how are you inspired by "Around the World'? Let us know by creating a card/project and joining us in the gallery. As I mentioned earlier, our challenge this week is sponsored by Your Next Stamp
, who are generously offering the winner a $20 gift certificate. Incentive!!
