Hey there Cupcake!

Hello friends and happy Wednesday!  We've had such wonderful weather here in Michigan so far this winter.  The other day it even got up to 50 degrees - hard to believe those temps in February!

Today is Sweet Sketch Wednesday - the start of a new challenge with a terrific sketch to follow and another favorite sponsor.

We've brought back another sketch from the past - this time from week 47.  This one is good for multiple design papers or can be done with less. We have some wonderful samples from the design team Divas over at the Sweet Sketch Wednesday blog.

The Stamping Boutique
We're so happy to have The Stamping Boutique as our sponsor this week.  The Grand Prize winner of the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week will receive their choice of three digi stamps from The Stamping Boutique.  Thanks to Tracy for this super prize package!

Tracy Malnofski is the owner and a designer for The Stamping Boutique.  She's also a stamp artist for Unity Stamp Company and has worked for InStyle Stamps, Squigglefly and The Digi Shack.  She's a professional artist and an active member of the Artist' Guild in her community.  Her "Boutique" has it all - fairytale, whimsy, sentimental ... and candy!  If you're not familiar with TSB, you'll just be thrilled with the wonderful images and selection there - give them a visit!

I chose this fun Cupcake from The Stamping Boutique to create with and provide some inspiration for you. You can always use cupcakes - for birthdays and many other occasions. This one is also perfect for Valentines with the sweet little hearts on it.  I paired this image with papers from My Mind's Eye "Life of the Party" collection for a fun birthday card.  It was colored with Copics and dressed up a bit with my sparkly gel pen.

I hope you'll join in the Sweet Sketch Wednesday challenge this week. Create a card using The Stamping Boutique images to qualify for the grand prize.  We love seeing the creativity of our participants week after week - come play along with us!

Thanks for stopping by!

We've been having some really mild weather too here in PA. Unfortunately it's snowing at this very moment now though.
Your card is oh so adorable Sharon. Love the papers you used. Stunning coloring too. Stay warm.

Isn't your cupcake paper just the your image and card this week. We were sitting on the deck soaking up the sunshine yesterday and this morning it looked like we were in a snow globe, softly falling snow....but it has all melted now, lol, my kind of snow!Take care and have a great week.

Oh Sharon your card is just so so sweet in more ways than one. Love your design papers just the most perfect match and wonderful colours. I'm sorry about this late comment but I've had computer problems and hopefully they are sorted now.
