CIC194 - Fresh Brewed

Despite the fact that I do not care for snow I do love these cupcakes.  If they were in my house they wouldn't last very long.  So once again I am grateful that the Cupcakes Inspirations Challenges only send me photos for inspiration.  If you aren't inspired by the cupcakes this week we also offer you a color challenge - pool, white and chocolate.  You've got two ways to play along in the challenge, so you have to get busy and play along.  This week we have one of our regular sponsors - Fresh Brewed Designs.  There's lots to choose from at Fresh Brewed, my favorites are the coffee related images.  Funny thing, I don't like snow, but I love snow themed images and I don't like coffee but I love coffee themed images.  Go figure... I was supposed to be making the point that there's something for everybody at Fresh Brewed so be sure to link up your creation for a chance to win some digis.

My card was inspired by the cupcake photo and I used the colors.  There's no sentiment on the card so that I have the choice of saving it as a Christmas card or using it as a winter note or birthday card.  Now it's your turn to make a card.  If you need some more inspiration pop over to the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge blog to see what the rest of the design team has created and that's where you'll find the linky to add your card to the submissions.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Fresh Brewed Designs "Snow Buddy on Ice" digi
ink - hp printer
paper - My Favorite Things "Hot Fudge" and "Sno-Cone" card stock; Close To My Heart "Aspen" dp
miscellaneous - copics; striped ribbon; SU Soft Suede dotted ribbon; snowflake charm; Taylored Expressions "Make a Snowflake" dies; Viva Glitter pen "Holo Iridescent"; My Favorite Things "Oval Stax" die-namics; pearls; SU slotted punch
