Cupcake Inspirations -

Grab Our ButtonHi! and Happy Thursday!  Are you getting ready for Easter?  I feel like I've been shopping all week trying to get the freshest ingredients - why can't they all be at one store?  I think I am just about done!  I picked up an Easter Lilly for my mom and some Easter basket goodies for the kids today -  the chocolate kind.  I purposely waited until later in the week so I wouldn't wind up eating them all!  I hope they are willing to share later!

OH and don't forget the Serendipity Stamps deal of the week is buy 3 get the fourth one free now tthrough April 9  http://www.serendipitystamps.com/DEAL.html  
Today I'm playing along with the Cupcake Inspirations challenge.  I saw these sweet little bunny cupcakes and made my own little paper confection.  I used lots of pink inspired by the flowers in the photo.  Isn't this little guy just the sweetest?  The card was quick and easy - and who couldn't use that around the holidays?  Another plus is that it is flat so I can mail it easy!  Yes, I know,  I made a flat card!! YEAHHHHHH!  Maybe all that "I think I can, I think I can" stuff really works!

I stamped my bunny twice - once on the original, once for a mask.  I then stamped the sentiment.  I covered my original bunny with the mask and then stamped the background.  I added lots of shading in distress spun sugar (how appropriate) and layered it on dark and then lighter pink paper.
I hop (I mean hope) you like him and that your having a great day!
