Birthday Sundaes Blog Hop

Hello Everyone and welcome to the first ever Birthday Sundaes blog hop!
If you have rrived here from Samantha @ http://hooliewoodcreations.blogspot.com/ then you are on track. If you have just happened on my blog and would like to start at the beginning here is your first stop should be the Birthday Sundaes Blog
This week we are saying goodbye to some of the first design team and welcome to the new crew. I will be staying on the team!!! I would like to say a personal farewell to all the wonderful ladies that were on the first Birthday Sundaes DT and to tell you it was a pleasure working with you. You made my first DT experience wonderful! To the new DT, I can't wait to see all your amazing talent and get some great inspiration!
The challenge this week to help us celebrate is to create something with "cakes and cupcakes!"

I choose to use a digital stamp this week because when I started this DT it was something that I had very little experience with. We used digital stamps a few times over the last few months from sponsors and through this a new obsession has been created lol. Hope you like this cutie as much as I do! I really stepped out of my comfort zone on this card using mostly patterned paper. I love just plain ol' cardstock usually but have really been trying to use up the mountain of patterned paper I have "somehow" acquired :)

Well, I best be letting you hop along. Enjoy the blog hop and I can't wait to see everyone's creations this week! Oh wait....one more thing....would you like the chance to win some blog candy? Along with my new digital stamp obsession I have also developed an addiction to making embellishments. I would love to send someone a collection of a few of these. (sorry I don't have a picture right now but there will be beaded flowers, stick pins, lace flowers, dyed "skittles, etc.) be entered just leave a comment on this post with a way to get a hold of you if you win. I would love if you were a follower but it is not mandatory. However, if you are and you leave that in your comment also I might add a little something extra for you! :)

Your next stop is Candice @ http://stampinpearls.blogspot.com/
Happy crafting everyone!
Tara

I LOVE your cutie/sweetie cupcake.
I know what you mean with the digi stamps addiction, it happened the same to me after I started at Birthday Sundaes' DT (We could make a support group lol)
Will miss to see your creations every week but I will come to visit.
Hugs,
Vivi

I love how the pattern paper isn't straight on the paper and is a little crooked. It gives the card some character. :-)
