Cupcake inspiration challenge #44

Hi everyone! I'm back with 2 cards for this week's FABULOUS Cupcake Inspiration challenge from Hope Stamps Eternal! I haven't stamped in over 2 weeks and man, it was tough getting started. I think I left my MOJO at the Basic Grey booth at CHA!! LOL! That place was amazing, but I digress... Check out these cutie cuppies!! There is all kinds of Valentine-y goodness going on. They're not subtle, that's for sure!
I took my inspiration from the hearts and all kinds of colors going on! I thought it would be perfect to use this week's Fall To Layout 76 and punched designer paper squares. This first card uses My Mind's Eye Be Loved and a couple punched hearts. The sentiment is from Verve's Heart's Desire set.

I had fun with this one, so I made another. This time using My Mind's Eye Love Me Do -such fun non-traditional Valentine colors in this line (sorry, Rach is out of stock),

Everyone is invited to play along in the challenge!! If you do, be sure to link your creation to Mr. Linky on the HSE blog and use CIC44 when uploading. Every week, Rach highlighs the top 5!!

Now head on over to the Sweeties and see how they rocked these cupcakes!!!!
