Cupcake Day

Last month I had fun with my family on our "dinosaur day" (you can read about it HERE) so we decided to do theme days every so often. Our last one was a cupcake day! We drew pictures of cupcakes and told stories about them, Belle colored some print outs of cupcakes and of course, we made some yummy cupcakes and the kiddos decorated them. Then the best part--eating them! Yummy!!

Here's a few photos of our fun day~~




 This last one was Officer Belle giving Matthew a speeding and littering ticket in his "car"!


So I only thought it fitting to use an image with a cupcake...and since I haven't gotten this PMS stamp inky, I thought it was even more perfect! Meet Olive the Otter! Isn't she just too cute and fun?? 



I used this week's sketch from SCS, SC287.



supplies:
  • card size: 4 1/4 x 5 1/2
  • stamps: Olive the Otter,
  • paper: PTI cardstock, scraps from Basic Grey Euphoria, SU cardstock,
  • ink: Memento Tuxedo Black, SU Rich Razzleberry,
  • others: copics, glitter, stardust pen, flowers, Heidi Swapp jewels,

I enjoyed the pictures immensely! I love the concentration they were putting into the beautiful cupcakes they made and Bella's face when she was eating one. I love Officer Bella giving Mathew a littering and speeding ticket! Priceless! BTW love your card too!
