Are you Ready for Some 'Sweet' Color?



I'm just a waitin' for my two oldest grandsons to come
by for a visit while their mom attends a bridal shower,
so not much time to share today.

I definitely have some eye-poppin' COLOR, though!


There are a variety of challenges going on right now
that are calling for a cupcake-theme, so I thought
I would create something that was fun and out
of the box for me.


I really wanted to show of those fabulous Martha
rhinestones, but you know photos just can't get
the right light...well, my camera doesn't anyway.

Here are the challenges I am entering
(it's a bit of a list...how fun!)


City Crafter has a brand new challenge.
Mona Pendleton is the Guest Designer this week.
We are wonderful friends and I love her work!
My cyber-friend Heather Jensen is on the team
over there and she is WAY talented!


Card Patterns is being sponsored by 
this week so I designed this card with their
sketch in mind.


The Crazy Challenge also has yummy goodness
on their minds with cupcakes!

I am also entering the following:

Pile it On ~ 'Sweet' things
Penny's Paper Crafty ~ Anything goes
Sew Many Challenges ~ Anything goes
Fussy & Fancy ~ Birthday with a Sweet Treat
My Time to Craft ~ Quick Quotes
Crafty Catz ~ Stitching
I think that's it!  How about that!
Many of you know, color challenges are my passion
but it's been nice to go outside the box a bit and play
with these wonderful challenges.

Of course, don't forget that
for this week.  We have a wonderful sponsor
and there is still time for you to play!

Have a great day!
