MY FIRST CUPCAKE

Have you ever had a cupcake from Sprinkles? They are to die for!!! We had them when my daughter and her husband had an open house in Calif. If you try one you will never eat a box mix cupcake again. I had some colored cupcakes I needed to do something with...what better thing than Beate's Weekend Challenge. Made me think of Sprinkles the whole time I was working on it :)
Stamps: Cupcakes for Inkadinkadoo
Ink: Stazon on black, close to cocoa, groovy guava and wild wasabi
Paper: whisper white, groovy guava, wild wasabi and dp from porcelain prints
Embellishments: white grograin ribbon and dazzling diamonds

Sad to say not too much gofer girl today!! It rained as soon as we got all the tools to the shed. We thought it was wise not to crank up the power tools with thunder and lightening. My hair is already naturally curly!! Tuesday the garage doors will be installed though so guess what we will be doing Monday night....we don't work on it on Sunday's.

I have a question to all you pros out there...when you use dazzling diamonds how do you not get it all over the rest of the card and you? No matter how hard I try it still flies around.

Tomorrow is the retired list day....that is all the buzz. It will be my first retired list so I am not buzzing yet LOL
Interesting they would announce it on Father's Day.

Have a great day tomorrow...don't forget to call the men in your life!!!

LOVE this cupcake card...so yummy looking!! Great job!
As for the DD on your card...are you using an Embossing Buddy first? I always swipe my entire card front with it then tap of the excess if there is lots and then apply the glue and DD. Hope that helps ;)

That's a sweet cupcake card! Great job on Beate's challenge. I would retype what Dawn said, but why? I do the same thing, totally works!

As for the retirement list, I've gone through a few and they've never bugged me in any way shape or form. I like the idea of new sets so something's gotta go!
