Pinkalicious Blog Hop Friday!

I'm back from Hawaii and hoppin' excited that it's Pinkalicious Blog Hop Friday!  Whether you arrived here from Tracy's blog or you arrived here on your own, I'm glad you're here!  If you would like to begin at the beginning, hop on over to My Pink Stamper and then you'll be sure to see all the wonderful projects made by Robyn and my fellow designers.

You know, it's great to take a break once in a while - I've had a long one between family visiting and going on my trip - but I've missed my papercrafting time!  I have some new cartridges, new stamps, and some other new supplies and I'm excited to use them!  The theme for this month's blog hop is birthdays!  And I am so excited to be showcasing one of Robyn's new stamp sets called Sweetest Cupcakes:

We LOVE cupcakes at our house!  My oldest daughter who is 11 years old especially loves cupcakes, and when that sweet tooth strikes her favorite thing to say is, "I feel like a big, frosted cupcake!"  I think the very first Cricut cartridge I ever bought was Sweet Treats, and it is still one of my favorites.  But today I wanted to try one of my new cartridges, so I decided to use one of the cute cupcakes on the Once Upon a Princess Cartridge:


I also tried a new technique with this card:  an accordian fold flower.  I have been wanting to try one of these for a while, and it was the perfect excuse to get out my new Martha Stewart Score Board.  What a super easy, fun technique?

Cricut CartridgeOnce Upon a Princess
Stamps:  My Pink Stamper Sweetest Cupcakes
Paper:  AC Cardstock, Doodlebug Design Pastel Playful Paisley, Doodlebug Design glitter cardstock
Edge Punch:  Martha Stewart Flower Patch, Fiskars Apron Lace
Embellishments:  Offray ribbon, DCWV (button), green gem

Thank you so much for visiting me today!  It's now time to hop along to Pam's blog.  I've included the entire blog hop order below in case you get lost, and don't forget to go back to My Pink Stamper when you're done and join us for the challenge!  Have fun!

Cupcakes are my girlies go to comfort food! We love baking them up together although they know Mommy is a softy for them and so they ask for them almost every day (and no, we don't make them every day..hehe)! I love what you did with your card and that flower is such a great addition to the card! I hope you enjoyed your trip!
