Juggling Cupcakes


 Today it's time for one of my all time favorite blog hops.   The Design Diva's Oldies But Goodies Hop.   The way this works is you can have any theme for your project BUT you must use something that has been in your stash and unused for 6 months or more.   Well, that is certainly not a problem for me or most of the crafty women I know.  We all have major stashes (or are working on one) and choosing something is usually more of a problem.  Now if you have arrived here from Barb's Made For Keeps Blog you are on the right road.  If you would like to begin at the starting point just pop on over to Maria's blog Joyful Stamper and begin there.

      For today, I used a cute little House Mouse stamp I have had in my stash for 2 years at least.  On the stamp the darling mouse is juggling easter eggs (kinda out of season now) but I also had another stamp set that I have had for several years from Studio G that is a set of 4 mini cupcakes.  I decided I would combine the two.  I also needed a cupcake themed House Mouse card for a swap and so this worked out perfectly for me. I didn't photograph the inside but the sentiment is:  Hi Cupcake.

     So, What do you think?  I love comments and savor every one, if I was a puppy I would roll in them so good or bad I would like to hear from you.  I DO LIKE CONSTRUCTIVE CRITICISM.

    Now, I am going to send you on your way to the way talented Gina at Makings and Musings so you can continue your fun filled journey.
