MTTSC11 - Twinkling Inspiration!

Well Happy Tuesday everyone! I am thrilled this morning because we don't have to GO anywhere! Ever since we got home from our awesome Florida vacation it's been one thing after another with the house and the kids, we just run run RUN all day! But today we don't have anywhere to be and it's a GOOD THING.

So anyway, Tuesday means Twinkle Time and another challenge from Miss Madelynn! This week I am the FEATURED STAMPER over at the Twinkling Tuesday blog, check it out! Instead of the usual sketch challenge, we have an INSPIRATION challenge for ya today! The scrumptious mug in the photo above is the inspiration. Could you not go for a yummy minty whipped coffee or chocolate drink right about now?!?

I combined this challenge with the fourth Viva la Verve sketch with a twist for February, which was to use acetate somewhere on your card, along with the sketch provided {below the card}. FUN! I went with acetate as the card base, colored the cupcake with Copic markers {of course}. Both of the patterned papers are from Basic Grey, the green is the new Porcelain - *swoon*. {Public Service Announcement - I buy all my Basic Grey 6x6 pads from Limelight Papercrafts. Kaisercraft Pearls and Rhinestones too. Mandy has THE BEST prices and she ships out really fast. Click, click, boom, right to your door and into the stamp room before DH even knows the mail came! Can't beat that!}.

And here is the Verve sketch I based it on:

So, head over to visit the rest of the Twinklettes and be sure to leave some love! {Links on the left sidebar}. I am excited to do the blog rounds myself and see everyone's interpretation of this inspiration piece! If you play along on SCS or PCP, use the keyword MTTSC11, and be sure to link up your creation over on the Twinkling Tuesday blog so we can all see it!
