A Little Friday Frosted Flair...

...Hey everyone!

***I know this is a CRAZY Friday as I have not one, not two, but THREE posts today, but thanks for stickin' with me and PLEASE, if you will, scroll down for my LPS Preview as well as my Farm Fresh Friday post from The Greeting Farm...there is SO much going on this week in cyber-stamping-space!***

Well, I am LOVING the September Kit of the Month from UNITY stamps, but while I have a few projects sitting right next to me here in the making, I realized that I never did get around to showing this little confection from last month!

You guys all know that next to butterflies, cupcakes are prob my next obsession and when I saw this sweet lil' stamp in the August kit I knew it had to be inked up!I followed a sketch and color combo from Taylored Expressions (Taylor is the ultimate cupcake lover!) Birthday Bash challenges and I really like how this one turned out, complete with Crystal Effects to make the cake plate shine like glass :)

Do you guys like cupcakes? Check out these links to two of my FAVE places....ever! One of them I am fortunate enough to be very close to...although that's not always a good thing, LOL!:

IVEYCake-Franklin, TN
and
CUPCAKE...in my beloved town of Charleston, SC.

If you guys ever get a chance to go to either of these places, well...you'll be pleased :)

Well, on that note...who wants to bake something today?! I'm gonna go finish up these projects I have with my SEPTEMBER Kit of the month...and OMGOSH have you guys SEEN the October one? Is it the 15th yet???

You'll see what I mean when you check it out HERE.

NEED IT NOW!

Unity Flair!


On that note, I'll leave you with a sweet thought for the day....I had a little bit of a trying day yesterday and remembered this quote...that just HAPPENS to be by someone named CUPCAKE Brown:

"Instead of asking WHY you had to do it, how about just thanking Him for safely bringing you THROUGH it."


Have a Flair-filled Friday, everyone! Before I get to the next post (below), I want to announce that COPIC WEEK is coming to DieCutsRUs! I will be doing some spotlighting this week over there to help celebrate DCRU's last HUGE Copic sale of the season...are you ready for this? How about some Copic Ciaos for 2.99 a marker?!? Can you say STEAL of a DEAL? Stay tuned and/or check out the link on my sidebar for more info coming this weekend :) You will NOT want to miss this!
