The card that took half my lifetime...

OK, you KNOW that title isn't true, but it felt like that! My printer decided this past weekend it didn't desire to play nice with me.  :(

So I'm really delayed in getting my Cupcake Inspiration project done - and as I always say, when you leave home at 7:15 a.m. and return home after practices at either 8:30 p.m. or 9:30 p.m., it's just tough to squeeze all the time in. BUT the schedule is definitely slowing down for a few weeks - I should be able to stop pulling my hair out!  WHEE!!

Here's the deets behind the challenge:

We are sponsored this week by Prairie Fairy Designs.

One lucky person will win 5 digis of their choice!

Our inspiration cupcakes this week:

I loved using Gillian Brewing Spells - such an adorable image, love it! Of course as alluded to above, I began coloring the image on Monday and was just able to get everything finished up tonight! The layout is Mojo Monday #211. I flipped it around a bit and used my cute little spider up in the corner...and of course I had to add some googly eyes to him!

The extra you see below the card is the decorated envie!

I also added glossy accents to Gillian's glasses as well as the frog's eyes. See that bubbly brew - oooo, looking quite tasty, don't you think? Once it was colored, I added some glossy accents and sparkle for a bit of fun! The sentiment was self-created and added over a couple colorful nesties, "Eat, drink & be scary!".

Thanks for looking; glad you stuck with me to get my project done. 

And super quick before I go, we're looking for some new design team members - check it out:
