Challenges with SAM

My scrapping friend (we refer to each other as SAM) and I have decided that we are going to have weekly challenges. Every Friday, each of us will take turns in coming up with an idea and then on Monday we will bring in what we created and swap.

Our first challenge was cupcakes. We both love cupcakes especially the one's at Martha Green's.
I wanted to participate in Kristina's CI Challenge this week, but I ran out of time. I had actually started a card but didn't quite finish so the cupcake challenge was perfect for me because I had all the colors I needed and could actually complete my card.

Here are the colors that Kristina used for her CI Challenge #13.

Color Inspiration Challenge #13

I'm kind of disappointed that I didn't get to submit my card to Kristina's challenge, but oh well.

My cupcake card

And this is my SAM's card. She stamped the cupcake image and then traced with this cool glitter pen. Topped it off with a little heart bling and voila! a cute, yet simple little card.
I'll have to use the stamping/glitter pen technique. It really made the cupcake pop. These challenges are great because we learn from each other.

SAM's Card
Gotta get ready for my "date" with Chuck. We are going to see Wall-E, and then I'm taking him out to lunch and then at 2:00 Nubi is having their grand opening! Everything will be 50% off. I'll probably eat too much frozen yogurt and make myself sick. That's ok... it will be worth it.

Mata ne!
