What'd I Do With...

Today I experienced a couple of the joys of moving.  First I worked in my craft room, which should really be called my craft mess.  There's just too much stuff.  Combine that with not being sure where things are.  But I was able to make a card I liked, even if I didn't dig out my Big Shot.  Later on I was putting gas in my car and attempted to charge it.  Try to guess if the credit card company still has your old zip code on file or your new one.  I was pretty sure that which ever one I guessed would be the wrong one and I was right, fortunately I did have some all American green stuff in my wallet.  And if these are the biggest problems I have in life than I count myself as blessed. 

This week the Cupcake Inspiration Challenge is being sponsored by Stamp Fairy.   Some of the sweeties have used Stamp Fairy images so you have to check out their work on the blog, you'll find all the info you need there, including the linky thing for entering your creation.

That lovely cuppie in the photo got me hunting for an image with a cupcake with a single candle on it.  Then I picked some papers that had the colors.  This Basic Grey paper even had a trim with stripes that are similar to the stripes behind the cuppie in the inspiration photo. 

Now it's your turn to make a card or project inspired by the photo.  I can't wait to see what you create.

Here's the deets:
stamp - My Favorite Things a la mode "Birthday Girl"
ink - Memento Tuxedo Black
paper - Basic Grey "Kioshi" dp; the Paper Cut "Pink Lemonade" cs; Bazzill "Intense Kiwi" cs
miscellaneous - copics; baker's twine; phone charm; Martha Stewart border punch

Here's the challenges:
