Happy Cupcake Friday to ME!!

I love Fridays for SO many reasons; I only work 4 hours so I either get to run errands, visit friends, take a nap, stamp - whatever I'd like after 12:00 or I get to sleep in (every 4th Friday I work late shift 1:00-5:00) It's such a 'SWEET' deal and one of the many reasons I enjoy my full-time job. Well, yesterday was special for lots of other reasons too! I visited with a former co-worker I hadn't talked to since I was laid-off from the job (it was a blessing) about 2 1/2 years ago! We have kept in touch via email though. It was wonderful to hear her say she missed me and get a hug from her (I miss you too Tracey!)

Anyway, it's also Beate's Weekend Sketch, which I didn't start doing until a few weeks ago & I'm hooked-what took me so long to get in on all that fun!?!? Then, it's Taylor's Cupcake Challenge (she has had Cupcake Friday for a while now where she highlights projects made with cupcakes-so fun) and to top it all off with a CHERRY - I got my loot (winnings from eP's One-Year Birthday Challenge) So I must brag (I mean show) you what I got! Then show you what I did with these sketches & my new eP Exclusive clear set by Stampendous Hey There Cupcake I couldn't show it all to you in one picture-the cute pail was FULL of this stuff (except the stamped Easter images, they wouldn't fit in the pail)

This is the Thank You card I got from Joy & Daisy...isn't it cute? I am HOOKED on this set, I could barely put it down to stamp with other stuff since last night, all the possibilities are endless with all the sprinkles, different cupcake liners, frostings, candles, greetings!! I have to admit all this cupcake stuff has had me jonesing for some cupcakes so last weekend I made Easy Black Bottom cupcakes - they were pretty good. But tomorrow I am going to make some triple chocolate goodness-chocolate cupcake with semi-sweet chips inside with chocolate frosting and sprinkles. YUM

phew! Are you still with me?? Here is my card from Taylor's Cupcake Challenge 2 and Beate's Weekend Sketch 33. So fun! Aren't those red heart brads the cutest? They came from Melanie - thanks, girl! She got them at JoAnn's. I also used my pearl glitter from my Stampendous loot for the frosting on the cupcakes! Loved this color combo, Taylor!
