It's Cupcake Time

Are you ready for some more Cupcake Inspiration?  Well, it's Sunday so it's time and here it is.  There's six cupcakes to inspire you.  Don't worry, you don't have to make six cards, but boy would that be a real challenge.  Just make one card or any other kind of project inspired by these cuppies and you can enter the Cupcake Inspirations Challenge.  This week we're sponsored by Whimsie Doodles.  One lucky person will win 2 images from the April release.  That's a good  reason to get inky. 

Here's a link to where you can find all the challenge details, the linky tool and see what the rest of the design team has created. 

can you see the mushroom charm?  click on the photo to enlarge it
Here's what I made using the Whimsie Doodle digi image "Gnomiegobig".  Now I don't have a clue what the sentiment means but I think the gnome holding that big old flower is so doggone cute that I don't care what the sentiment means.  It sounds sports related and as anyone who knows me can testify, my knowledge of sports is pathetic.  If any of you kind people (Eileen, you know everything- help me) who leave comments know what it means, let me know.  As I was saying, it is a cute image, and if you don't like the sentiment you can crop it out.  I was inspired by the colors and the mushroom cuppie inspired my dp and charm choice.  What will you inspire you?  I look forward to seeing what you make.

Here's the deets:
stamp - Whimsie Doodle digi "Gnomiegobig"
ink - HP printer and Ranger "Weathered Wood" for pouncing
paper - Georgia Pacific white cs for image; Stampin' Up Bold Brights blue cs for card base and mat; Nicole brown cs for mats; blue dotted paper Lasting Impressions "Smooth Sailing Dots"; maroon paper with white dots Me and My Big Ideas "Reds - Color Basics"; Imaginisce "Twitteredpated Mushroom Fancy"
