Taylored Expressions Cupcake Challenge #27

I'm still playing with my new rubah Doodle Factory Creatures from Starving Ariststamps and what a perfect way to use them is to join in the fun with Taylor's Cupcake Sketch Challenge.

I wasn't really too crazy with these creatures when I first saw them but the more I used them the more I love them. But, I'm still having issues with coloring them...oh well!

I use Skoober for the first card, I'm really not sure if he's not too happy that he's going to a birthday party or because he's wearing that silly hat with a matching shirt..LOL! And again, what's Taylor's challenge without a cupcake? The cupcake is from House-Mouse designs Make a Wish (<-- see this card), stamped on whisper white card stock cut and raised with stamping dimensional and what's a cupcake without a frosting...YUM! The sentiment is a rub-on from Stampin' Up Love
and Happiness.

And this is Rupert. Isn't he adorable? It's either he did something really, really bad and trying to apologize with a single flower on his hand or just being sweet as always giving someone a flower... just because!

I hope you had a great weekend! I had a very relaxing weekend, just stayed home, watch baseball games on TV and play with my new creatures.
