For this weeks PS SPARKS challenge

 and the Moxie Fab World Stamp It! Birthday challenge...

Houndsooth, cupcake, banner, colors (peanut, icing, wrapper and banner colors) - yup, I was really inspired by this photo. :)

The tape here is actually from a huge roll of masking tape I got awhile back - cut down to strips, with the edges ripped off, it's perfect (cheap!) imitation washi tape!

I actually don't have a cupcake stamp - I used the tiny cloud (?) stamp from Party Posse, stamped that (after masking the hamsters arms), and used a black Memento marker to draw the liner. Speaking of Memento markers, I got eight of them for a buck each on clearance - I'm not really a marker person, but I've been having so much fun with these! :)

Finally, one last thing - didja notice that one of my cards is featured on the Moxie Fab World Stamp It! Birthday challenge blog post?

As the little hammie up there would say, 'squeal!'! So excited to see my card there, even though my last name is spelled wrong (sometimes we just tell people to write 'pizza' when they have a hard time getting our last name ;)).
Another special blessing from God. :)

Thanks so much for stopping in today, and have a blessed weekend!
