Upside Down Birthday

Have you been to Taylor's blog? That's a silly question, I know... okay, have you seen her new line of stamps, ofcourse you've seen it if you've been to her blog. Oh, are we in trouble or what?!


Anyway, if you've been to her blog you know that it's time again for Taylor's Cupcake Sketch Challenge and I've been wanting to make a card with this turle from Whipper Snapper Design upside down. We have turtle name Dude and when it's time to clean him I always like to put him upside down (don't ask me why) I guess I like to see him get out of that position. So, when I saw Taylor's sketch, it was just time.


Dude and his friend was invited to a birthday party, Dude got the balloons and his friend was such a goof, fell and had all the cupcakes ended up on his belly. The cupcakes are covered with liquid applique and stickes for some sprinkles and they like their cupcakes with cherries.

Stamp: Turtle from Whipper Snapper Design and cupcake from Studio G/Acrylic Stamp

Paper: Whisper White, Chocolate Chip and Mellos Moss card stock from SU

Ink
: Black Staz-on Ink and SU re-inkers

Accessories
: Liquid Applique, Crystal stickles, Dew drops, and stamping dimensionals

Catherine, you are seriously tempting me over to the *dark side* (non-SU) with all of these cute animal stamps...mice, turtles, strange looking critters...I think my bank account is going to be in serious trouble if you don't stop with all the cuteness ;)
