Yummy Tuesday Triggers!

I was so drawn to the colors, shape and theme of this picture from  Moxie Fab World's Tuesday Trigger Citrus Celebration and was inspired to make a card.
LIFE is sweet!
One little cupcake stamp (see Birthday Express)  can make a big impact. I did some masking for the stacking cupcakes.
Here I used the Color Box Citrus Chalk Ink for the colors (here is a video tutorial and offers a few good tips). The Baker's twines provided the fun elements for this design. I applied the SRM Stickers (We've Got You Stickers-Sweet) for the sentiment.

The biggest surprise for me today is finding out about the Fab 5 win (out of over 500 submissions!!) at Hero Arts (see here). How LUCKY am I!!!!  I simply created the envelopes for David and friends to hold their traveling tickets/receipts/stubs.  It was a hit among his traveling companions, especially some of them are scrapbookers themselves. They LOVE the idea! And now I get to win some NEW amazing Hero Arts stamps?  I am truly the happiest stamper today, in deed...
 Life is SWEET!
