Do Not Do Doughnuts...

CIC117 inspiration photo
 or words to that effect...  those were the unkindest words I'd ever heard uttered.  It was actually worse, it was "You cannot eat sugar for the rest of your life".  Can you imagine?  Mean, just mean.  It's a good thing I really, really like this doctor and that she wasn't telling me anything I didn't already know.  But I digress...
Aren't these patriotic cupcakes yummy looking.  I don't even mind that they have blue icing on them.  I usually don't care for blue on my foods but I'd make an exception for these.  Those are the inspiration for this week's Cupcake Inspirations challenge #117.   This week the sponsor is Glitterbabe.  The winner will receive a $10 gift certificate to use in the Glitterbabe store.  Nice, very nice.  You will have fun shopping there.  You can pick up a few digis with that cash in your pocket. 
The design team was given our choice of images for this challenge so I picked the fun "coffee N donuts" digi. Heck, just cause I can't eat 'em doesn't mean I can't color 'em.  I used pink and brown copics covered with Ranger "Glossy Accents" to simulate my old favorite glazed donuts. 

 I have no idea why I used a phone charm,
 must have seemed like a good idea at the time

Here's the deets:
stamp - Glitterbabe digi "coffee N  donuts"
ink - hp printer
paper - Georgia Pacific white cs; Stampin' Up Kraft cs; October Afternoon "Thrift Shop" dp
miscellaneous - copics; Ranger Glossy Accents; telephone charm; baker's twine; nesties stars die; star brads; sewing machine

don't forget the inside

Here's the challenges:
