Gone Fishing

Here's the Cupcake Inspirations CIC174 inspiration photo for this week.  The more I hang around the Internet the more I see that you can find a cupcake decorated for every occasion, every hobby, basically everything.  Isn't it amazing?  It used to be that if you wanted to dress up your cupcakes the decorations were little plastic models on picks that you stuck into the icing but these days bakers are ingenious sculptors making the decorations out of sugar and food products.  Watching them on television shows gives you a window into what goes on in their heads and kitchens.  They are artists, aren't they.  

In case you don't recognize that little redhead, that's Gilly from Prairie Fairy Designs.  Just like the cupcakes there's lots of Gilly's for your cards and crafting projects.  Of course the store isn't limited to Gilly images there's plenty more, you should make a stop over there.  Be prepared, you'll want to shop.  Or you can enter a card into the Cupcake Inspirations challenge and be the winner, in which case you'll get to go shopping with your prize.  So get your fingers inky and play along, you never know, this could be your lucky week.

Here's the deets:
ink - hp printer
paper - My Favorite Things "Sno-Cone" and "Red Hot" card stock; October Afternoon "Campfire" dp
