oh happy day

Today is the day you can stop by Taylored Expressions and check out all the new releases for March - yippee! I thought I'd celebrate with this cute little Cuppie card since I just couldn't resist inking this little guy up! I dove into my Easter Key Ingredients goodie bag again for this card - love, Love, LOVE these bright colors! Everything on this card (minus the twinkle dots) is from the Easter Key Ingredients kit - it's amazing how fast this card came together using the kit. All the colors are already packaged and coordinated for you - super easy! I stamped the cupcake in black Staz-On ink and colored him in with watercolor crayons and a blender pen and then added the Twinkle Dots to add some dimension and sparkle to his cute little egg. Doesn't it look like a little Fabriche Egg? Haha! Sweet Spring is one of my absolute favorite Stamp A Sweet Impression sets - the images are so sweet and fun and I just can't wait until I can use them for the Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenges! Thank goodness tomorrow is Friday and I can ink up another cuppie.

Stop by Taylor's Blog for more exciting details and check out the Baker's Dozen to see their creative ideas!
