Just a Note

I don't know about you but I am tired.  Thursday was the big day, we finally closed on our new home.  We have been so busy.  It's hard to believe that a house that's only about 10 years old needs so much work but it does.  Because this was a short sale I figured this wasn't going to happen till sometime after the holidays and I had all sorts of stuff planned, including a now cancelled trip North to scrap with my best buddies.  A short while ago I bought an embroidering sewing machine and a serger and had classes to take to learn how to use them as well as signing up for a couple quilting classes.  Little did I know that the short sale was going to be approved shortly after making that purchase.  Well, it's all working out and come tomorrow when I have a quilt class to go to I am going to be thrilled to take a day off from cleaning and packing.  Instead of inky fingers my hands stink of bleach and forget about my fingernails.

Now onto the reason you're here.  It's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge time.  This week are sponsored by Tiddly Inks.  The sweeties got to pick an image to use and boy was it hard deciding.  They are just the cutest things.  I heard a couple of the sweeties couldn't pick just one and went on a little shopping spree.  I can understand why and imagine when things calm down around here I will pushing a cart around the site. 

I finally decided on Danny's Duck.  For a long time my nick name was Duck because I used to ask my friends "What's up Duckie?".  Plus it's just too dang cute and I can always use a boy image. 

Here's the deets:
stamp - Tiddly Inks "Danny's Duck"
ink - hp printer; SU "Chocolate Chip" marker for sentiment
paper - Bazzill "Pinecone", "Citrus" and "Beeswax" cs; Cosmo Cricket "Nutmeg"
miscellaneous - copics; red burlap twine; leaf charm; Crystazzi Crystals; EK Success leaf punch; Stampin' Up oval and scalloped oval punches; Nesties lacey square
