Can you believe those little sand buckets are cupcakes. They look so realistic, I'd be afraid to bite into one. They sure are a great source of inspiration. If you're living in the Northern Hemisphere you just might be planning a trip to the beach today. I've been hearing the temps in my old NJ stomping grounds have been in the 90's and almost 100. YIKES! that's hotter than it is here in the sunny Gulf Coast Florida. It's probably muggy there too.
Enough about the weather...
This week for the Cupcake Inspirations challenge #166 we've got Bugaboo Stamps for our sponsor. I do love the Bugaboo images and for my card I'm using the very fun "Flamingo - Car" image. If you knew me in real life you'd know that I've been a flamingo fanatic for the last 40 years and have had lots of fun with my equally crazy flamingo friend Joe. He's used a lawn flamingo for his Christmas tree topper for years. Then there's the convertible. When VW came out with the "new' convertibles in 2003 I got one of the first ones to hit the lot. Just like the one of the card it was orange with a black roof. That was a fun car. In case you can't read it the license plate is "NO SNO" and there's a tiny flamingo charm hanging off the pink cord. this was a fun card for me to make. I can't wait till the middle of winter to send it to one of my snow bound NJ friends.
