How Many Days...

...left till Halloween?  I  do love Halloween but today I am just not in the mood to make another Halloween card.  Probably by tomorrow I will be but not today. But, look at today's Cupcake Inspiration challlenge photo.  What's a girl to do?  Well, this girl decided to use the cake as the inpsiration for a birthday card.  What will you come up with?  The Sweeties are always anxious to see what you think up, so join us in this week's challenge, we're sponsored by DTS.  You can find all the details by clicking here.

I'm still wondering when things are going to get back to normal for me, by which I mean, that I'll have plenty of time for sitting down at my scrapbox or sewing machine and time to get to the computer to blog and browse.  Well this weekend isn't it but it's all for good.  My cousin and her husband are visiting.  My brother and I are having a great time catching up and showing them all the great things there are to do and places to visit around the Sarasota area.  AND they are having a great time not being in New Jersey for the unbelievably early first snow storm of the season.

So, here's the deets:
stamp - Sassy Cheryl "A Load of Cake"
ink - hp printer
paper - K & Co "KP Halloween"; Paper Pizazz "Leaves"; Stampin' Up "Patterns Pack II" ; Recollection Printed Scrapbook papers; Recollections kraft card base; Bazzill "tangelo" cs
miscellaneous - copics; black glaze pen; leaf buttons; burlap twine; gelly roll pen

Here's the challenges:
