Cupcake Inspiration challenge #57

Hi everyone!  It's Sunday and that means it's time for another FABULOUS Cupcake Inspiration challenge from Hope Stamps Eternal!  Check out these amazing cupcakes.  

Unfortunately, I didn't have time to make a sample for today.  BECAUSE I am super excited to be starting a major kitchen renovation!!  Yep.  My gal CHARLENE is doing one, and I have to say, it got me thinking -why not?!  Why not create my dream kitchen while I LIVE here to enjoy it?  So, Bill and I started the ball rolling this week.  My card making and blog posts won't be as regular as normal over the next several months.  I will be sure to post before, progression and after pictures!

So in lieu of a sample card, I thought I would share some cards that were published in the Mar/April issue of Crafts 'n Things Magazine.  I was lucky enough to have 3 cards in there, and the current May/June issue has one

Important Notice:  Last week I was saddened to announce that the Hope Stamps Eternal store is closing.  But before the doors close, there will be a storewide sale of 35% while supplies last.  Goodies are flying off the shelves fast, so head over there while you can!

Be sure to check out my fellow HSE Sweeties to see how they rocked these cupcakes!
