Angels and Cupcakes

One of our awesome prize sponsors this month is Limited Runs.  They have a wonderful variety of digi stamps and some of my favorites are this amazing line of Cupcakes.  They have cupcakes for EVERYTHING, so clever!  I am totally in love with all the Halloween theme ones, I am sure that doesn't surprise any of you, but since this is the celebration month as way too far from Halloween, I decided to pick this delightful image Angel Cupcake for the celebration.
Check out this fun images and tell me which one you like.  I have to say I also adore the Igloo Cupcake and also the Button Cupcake.  Too fun huh?

I love how she puts, "enjoy these cupcakes with no calories"  HA! isn't that the truth because I wish I could sit down and eat them.  I am back to a "diet" of sorts which basically means that I am cutting out things like cupcakes.  Boy, would I like a cupcake right now, or pretty much any kind of sugar!!

So since we can only have "crafty snacks"  what's your favorite?

I must fess up that I am a button addict and I also seem to grab a lot of ribbons and laces. 

Do you make lots of things for kids? family?

I don't seem to have many occasions for kids and family right now (other than the hubby of course).  But my brother's recent birth will have me delving into baby cards and kid theme cards now.

  1. Great job with this beautiful cupcake image!
    My favourite cupcakes: Butterfly on a cupcake and Ribbon cupcake (2 that I don't have!!!)
    Fav snack: cheesecake or potato chips!
    I have a number of people I can make cards for - I'm great at making them but terrible at getting into the mail!!

  3. Your cupcake card is just yummy! The DP looks so pretty with the angel's flowing hair. WOW, been awhile since I've been to Limited runs. Gobs of cool new cupcakes. The Garden Cupcake is gorgeous and the Big Birthday set would be useful since all my friends are "getting up there" LOL. My fave is the eyeball cupcake, but I already own that one. My traditional "crafty snacks are adhesive beads, but I recently revisited brads and got a stash of vintage buttons. Mostly I make cards for hubby (from me and the kitties) and a few good friends. I hate going to the P.O. so if they can be hand delivered, so much the better. xxD

  4. The cupcake is absolutely adorable! My crafty snack these days is lace. I love the stuff! I don't do much for kids either...don't have any little ones around anymore. I will have grand babies eventually I hope, but for now nothing.

  7. LOVE this darling image!! Angels are my thing and this is a beauty! Such pretty coloring too!
    My crafty-snack would be glitter, lace and pearls or gems!
    I make kid themed cards, minis and "toy"type projects for my grandchildren and grandnephew and grandniece! Right now they are the only kiddos in my circle of family and friends! I also make cards for kids at the local hospitals. At least once a month I do a batch of 30-40 cards to send to them!

  8. Your card is so cute and pink is my favourite colour! Great sentiment too and I like your little cupcake button! So cute! Nikki has a lot of cupcakes indeed! My favourite is the elephant! I like the sharks too! As for crafty snacks, I love sequins, gems, and charms! As for cards, all of mine are for family and friends. I have 3 nieces and a nephew, so I do tend to make a lot of kids cards.

  10. cupcakes with no calories sound great to me! my 'crafty snack' is the vintage buttons I not only collect, but add to almost every project I make. I can't get enough of them! :)

    most of the 'kid' cards I make are for my sons. even the ones that are no longer near me get mailed off so they know I'm thinking of them!

    Hi Holley - My favorite cupcake is the wedding cupcake! I have wedding on my brain! I am so glad that stamping supplies do not have calories, because I would be very large, if they did. I have to buy embossing folders. You just can't have too many!

  12. wow, your card is so fab! Love the pink :)
    my favourites are cupcakes, but I don't have any stamps or dies of them jet :(
    Yes, I mostly do things for my family and friends. It just makes me happy :)

  17. Your card is so pretty Holley. Love the wings on the angel and the way she fluffed the cupcake. I love the elephant one she made. So cute and sweet delights. I hate the diet world. I too need to go back on one. A crafty snack.... Hmmm I love me some stincels, and wood veneer. I haven't had to much time lately to make cards. But I do like to make them for my family and my kiddo. Need to do more of it.

  18. A gorgeous image Holley. Fab card. I am lucky enough to have four fab grandchildren ranging from 6 to 14 so kids cards are a must. X

  19. Pretty card today Holley, I am afraid cupcakes are a 'no-no' for me too.
    I am a bling or butterflies person (or both at once!)

    ReplyDelete
  20. Yum, a cupcake. I wish those real ones were low on calories too! lol
    My crafty snacks are papers, flowers and anything with butterflies. I just can't get enough of those things.
    I wasn't making a lot of things for kids, but this is changing now. My hubby's nephew is 2 years old so I make cards etc. for him and I'm about to have my first baby so I made a mini album for my little bundle of joy and I am planning to make many more projects (paper and non paper) to decorate the baby's room.

  21. You did a great job on today's card. Love your layout, focal image & the cute cupcake button. Like the Igaloo Cupcake, Big Birthday Set & Triple Layer. Oh like the turtle one too. All the cupcake images are great especially the Halloween ones. My "crafty snacks" are bling (gems, dots) and flowers. Don't do much with "kids & family" theme as most of family is all grown up.

  24. I love anything cupcake too, especially eating them. But, that is in the past with pre-diabetes :( So, coloring them is the best I can do. I seldom make cards for "real" people. Most of my cards are for challenges or Design Team commitments. When I need one for an occasion, I shop in my collection LOL! My crafty snack is color. Anything that can make color, pens, pencils, paints, inks or markers. Love 'em all!

  28. No calorie crafts- never thought of it that way. One of my favorite "snacks" is paper- I have tons of it, but always look at it in the store. I do make kid cards- in fact I make stacks for my grandchildren to use for all of the birthday parties they attend. Love the card!

  31. Holley my favorite cupcake is "Love Heart". I love hearts. But they're all great.
    My crafty snack is paper. I can't seem to get enough of it.
    I used to make hundreds of crafts when my kids were little.
    Your angel cupcake is adorabe.

  33. A gorgeous card Holley. The image and papers are wonderful.
    I'd rather grab a crafty snack of some lace or ribbon than a cupcake. I can't resist chocolate though.
    I find children's cards the most difficult to make. Baby cards are fine but with the middle school ages I lose my mojo xx

  34. Your card is very pretty in pink! The Angel with a cupcake is so precious! Love that cute cupcake button too.

  36. Beautiful coloring of the image and I love the cupcake ?button? embellishment. There are sure a lot of cupcakes to choose from! I enjoyed Fishy the most with the Drum set a close 2nd. I do still make cards for my grandkids and daughter. I also make thank you's and whatever else I need at the time.

  41. Awesome card!! I love cupcakes also. There are so many cute designs but I would probably pick igloo cupcake. Especially since the temperatures predicted for this weekend will be -30 with the wind chill factors. Brrrrr.

  46. Oh, the igloo and buttons are wonderful. As for kids and things, not too much that I do as everyone is grown up. I'm also one who likes bling, buttons, flowers, etc., and enjoy attaching them to my cards.

  47. I would have to go with Yummy Goodness because once I colored it in, I would have to have one! lol

  48. I have a big sweet tooth so I can't turn down anything with sugar, crafty or otherwise! My favorite craft embellishment would be twine or rhinestones

  53. What a great assortment to choose from My favorites are Jellybean and Dump Truck!! Oh and the Splat was pretty neat too! My favorite crafty no calorie items to pop into my mouth errrr HeHe I mean pop on my page are the giant shaped brads I just luv'em. Family members at Christmas time receive a stack of misc cards to have to mail out and they are soooo appreciative plus it saves them many calories they would have gotten if I sent them a homemade pumpkin log.

  54. I make a lot of cards and gifts for kids, since I have a 5 year old and 2 year old. My favorite goodies to use on my cards are ribbon and pearls!

  55. I love baking and my husband loves eating it, hahaha. My daughter is not into sweets...
    Great card!

  56. My favorite crafty snack at the time is I would say flowers and ribbon. I love gemstones and brads too. I have buttons, but don't use them alot. as for the cupcakes, I like the more plainer ones like the spots, or gumdrops. I make all sorts of cards for all ages, because I sell a number of them and mostly to older people so they want them for grandkids and kids. Hugs Cindy
