Stamp Something's 2 Year Blogoversary Blog Hop

I was thrilled when I was asked by Erin if I would like to join in with the Stamp Something Challenge's 2nd Blogoversary Blog Hop and said YES immediately :-)

The theme for the Blog Hop

CUPCAKES :-)



If you arrived here from the wonderfully talented Melissa's Blog then you are going in the right direction ,, if not you may wish to go back to the Stamp Something Challenge Blog and start from there.

This special hop is being sponsored by Heidi at Simon Says Stamp Superstore and she will be giving one lucky entrant a fabulous shopping spree !! I know that there are loads of new stock arriving every day ,, so loads of goodies to choose from :-)

Photobucket

I am not going to tell you where to go next ,,, yet ,,, first you have to see what I made :-)



I made this card following Jo's lovely sketch on the Sketch Saturday Challenge :-) This is my new House Mouse Stamp that was a gift from Heidi at Simon Says Stamp this one is called Birthday Cupcake :-)
I coloured the image with copics and inked the edges with Daffodil ink and embossed with sparkle embossing powder. The papers are Basic Grey from the Cupcake pad and the flowers are Prima sprayed with Pearl Glimmer Mist and dotted with star dust stickles. the cupcake had some glitter treatment too ,,, can't have too much glitter in my opinion :-) The sentiment is from a mini Hero Arts Cupcakes and Gems set I stamped some Penny Black Mice paw prints along the bottom piece of paper and embossed those too.



The next stop on the hop is the fabulous DORTE'S BLOG, she makes some amazing creations !! If you haven't visited her blog before you are in for a treat ,, make a coffee and get comfy ,, you are likely to be there for a while admiring her art :-)

before you go ,, you may be interested in my candy :-) Heidi has very generously offered to sponsor my blog candy too ! Hope you like it ! :-)





I am also entering this into the following challenges :-

C.R.A.F.T Challenge who are celebrating their 1st Blogoversary and have the same theme and a blog hop too :-)

CREATIVE INSPIRATIONS,,,, Card for a child ,, this is for my neighbour's boy who will be 12 on Monday :-)

Creative Cottage ,,,,, One for the Boy's

Basic Grey ,,,,, Punches ,, I used a border punch :-)

For a chance to win this candy you must complete the hop and leave a direct link to your blog with the Linky :-) I also request that you TURN OFF WORD VERIFICATION :-)

For House Mouse lovers I also suggest that you take a peek at another blog candy I have at the top of my blog too :-)
