More Yumminess!

Tonight after the baby went to bed, I stamped a couple more things. I guess I'm making up for all that time when I couldn't stamp. I left a HUGE mess in the dining room which I'm just not capable of cleaning tonight. However, I seem to be capable of posting some pics online! I tried Taylor's Cupcake Challenge for the first time ever. How could I not, with these kickin' cupcake stamps from Unity's Cupcakes a la Yummy kit?! (can you believe they are only $7? what a steal!!!) Here it is:


The color combination, strange as it is, was inspired by some polka dot ribbon that I ended up not even using on the card, because I couldn't figure out where to put it! The other things I stamped were my Unity card swaps, so I can't show you. Once the swaps have all been mailed back in August, I will post a picture. I LOVE the card I came up with, and I actually used a color I really don't think I have ever liked or used (Orchid Opulence)--I needed an accent color, and there was a stripe of Orchid in the patterned paper I used! You'll just have to check back in August to see my super cool swap card!

See my teething baby? He likes to suck/bite on his lips--so cute!


Have a great Saturday, and Happy Stamping!

I love what you did with the circles!!! What great visual interest! (I sound like a professional don't I?:) It really adds a fun element.

He is such a cute baby! Look at that smiley face, big blue eyes, & cheeks! The card is great! I really love the circles & the colors you used. The choc. chip sort of frames everything and pink & green are carried throughout in different ways. Love it! Sorry your poor boy has been sick. I hope he feels better & you get some rest!
