TECC28: Stack 'o Cupcakes for the Birthday Person



I broke down & got the Sock Monkey set - new by SU! for the Fall/Winter catalog - I just had to since I saw a sneak peek of accessories for him which makes the set more versatile! It's like the new Favorite Teddy Bear!!

I knew I wanted to put him in ***Taylor's 28th Installment of Friday's Cupcake Challenge because he's a bigger stamp and her sketch is for a tall card. In order to fill the proportions he has a stack of cupcakes to give the birthday person! Her sketch is a great way to use up smaller scraps of dp (if you use that instead of ribbon, wow I can't believe I didn't put ribbon on this card). The cupcakes have dazzling diamonds on them & of course this is the New SU! designer paper Bella Rose (I was calling it Bella Rosa until I realized the real name last week, ha). Isn't he cute?? I really LOVE the new In Colors (well, Tangerine Tango & Pacific Point are on the bottom of my list of favorites but it's nice working with fresh, new colors).

***If you have never participated in Taylor's weekly cupcake challenge, what are you waiting for? She always has great challenges and you could be featured on her blog the following Friday with the new challenge (and she sends out a little goodie to each winner). Come on & play!! Oh and you don't have to have cupcake stamps to participate but if you do - great!

OH, this is so yummy and darling! I want this set too--I think I'll be breaking down next week at my demo's SU! club, hehe :) I haven't played in Taylor's cupcake challenge yet, but have been wanting to try it--you having the sketch right here is super helpful and cool! Thanks, buddy! I am always inspired by you some way or another and so I gave you the Brillante Weblog Award over at mine today. I just luv u! but don't feel obligated to play, I'm sure you have received this many times already, but I had to let cha know! Hugs!
