Happy Cupcake Day!

This is what I created this weekend to play along with Taylor's latest Cupcake Challenge (TECC16) - I think it turned out really cute! It's one of those cards that I look at and smile - it just makes me happy. :-) This week Taylor had a sketch for us, and it included ripping the background paper. I used to be a big paper-ripper back in the day, but I haven't done it in ages. Thanks for the fun blast from the past, Taylor! Her sketch was a square card, but because I wanted to use this particular cupcake image I opted to keep mine rectangular. These little piggies are from the same Close To My Heart set that I used for my elephant card the other day - I just love this set!! I added Stickles (of course!) to the cupcakes and again to the piggies' toes. The sentiment is added by hand. Hope you all are having a great weekend! We spent yesterday at Sea World San Antonio, and the weather was just perfect for it. But it's supposed to be up to 96F by tomorrow, so it's almost time for us to hide in air conditioning for the summer...! Carter seemed to really enjoy Sea World, though - when I was putting him to bed last night, I said the usual "night night, I love you, have a good sleep" and he said "sleep then wake up and go Sea World again!!". Too cute. Thanks for stopping by today!
