You're So Sweet!

The stamp sets from Taylored Expressions (Stamp a Sweet Expression) are so doggone cute, they are hard to resist! Just before Easter, I received Downtown Diva and had to ink it up. Seemed like a great excuse to play in Taylor's weekly Cupcake Challenge.

The lighting at night is not the best for taking pictures of cards, but I wanted to get this posted before the deadline for this weekend's sketch challenge. (Edited to add: I took another picture this evening when I got home from work. It's still light outside, but evening light. Still, better than last night's darker version.)

I used SU's So Saffron cardstock for the base and mats, and SU's Sweet Slumber Specialty DSP (love the texture and colors!) for my card. The images are colored with my Copic markers. It's hard to see in the picture, but I used my atyou Spica pens to decorate some of the sweets in the window for a bit of sparkle, and used Taylor's Tiny Twinkles for the flower centers on the Cuppies' heads. I punched out the big flower using the same DSP, and finished it off with a yellow button.

Well, it's time for me to hit the hay, as they say, but before I go:

Question of the day (night?): What is your favorite sweet?

That's hard... there are so many... but my all time favorite are the Scotchmallows made by See's Candy... a yummy blend of marshmallow, caramel and dark chocolate. Oh Baby! And I'm pretty sure I could pick one out of a box of candy blindfolded! LOL

Love your sweet shop Lisa - but not sure I can think about too much sweet stuff after all the chocolate that's been around my place the last couple of days - LOL. Must admit to not being a "cuppie" fan, I know that's unheard of - but you've used them well!!

Gorgeous Lisa!!! Such fun colors and the sweet shop is adorable with the details you put into it. It makes me want a sweet treat right now... YUMMY!

My sweet treats I enjoy are chocolate turtles... NOW CAN WE ALL SAY YUM-O! I'm a caramel nut person... or just nutty as my DH would say! He... Sorry I have been MIA lately, but life should level off now to a happy medium... fingers crossed! So love you post and inspiring cards!! Hugs Lisa and have a super day! Michelle :)
