I ♥ Cupcakes!



What are little girls made of? Sugar and spice
And everything nice, That's what little girls are made of.

I think even as we grow, we ladies are still made of sugar and spice and everything nice, don't you? Today we have lots of girly fun to share with you! Fresh Brewed Designs has released (today) 7 brand new rubber stamps that are perfect for girls of all ages! Heather has designed 3 coffee gals to add to the already sassy series. These latte lovin' ladies have an extra sprinkle of sweetness. Each stamp has a little cherry topped cupcake added to it. We are also excited to introduce to you today Cutie Pie!!! She is a cute little butterfly fairy with a love for adventure and loves to spread smiles wherever she goes.

If you are just getting to the hop, you will have to start at the beginning at the Freshly Brewed Challenges Blog. If you are getting here from Audrey 's Blog you are on the right track.

Each design team member got to choose which stamp she'd use in this hop. I couldn't resist the latte' lovin ladies (after all, what's better than coffee AND a cupcake) so I chose La Dolce Vita.


Here she is:



I used a rectangular nestability to cut the frame (and yes, I did it wonky on purpose. LOL! I'm just not a very symetrical kind of gal.)



See the beautiful pink crocheted flower? I have to confess... I've been hoarding it for a long time! My online friend Michelle, gifted me with a whole bag of these gorgeous flowers (yellow, pink, white) because she knew I admired them, but don't know how to crochet. She made them! Isn't she talented!?!?!? Well, I finally decided this blog hop was a special enough occasion to merit using one of my hoarded crocheted flowers. THANK YOU, Michelle, for this very special gift!!!



Isn't this an awesome stamp? And a fun Blog hop??!?!?!?



Here is what you could win just by hopping!!!
