Happiness In A Teacup - Stampendous and May Arts Blog Hop

Hello everybody! Are you ready for some Friday blog hoppiness and weekend treats?

Thank you so much for all your wonderful comments on my previous post with the vintage Near The Sea Card. And big crafty squeezes to my newest followers - thank you so much for joining in!

My card is was a contribution towards two great blog hops Stampendous gals are taking part in this week - one with Spellbinders and one with May Arts. Spellbinder's contest in now closed but there is still time to enter our May Arts blog hop - and you really don't want to miss these amazinglicious prices! Check out the amazing inspiration that was shared earlier this week:

Now, blog hop means prizes! And when Stampendous peeps say prizes are on offer - they mean business! Three lucky peeps (with a US shipping address) will win a $20 voucher to spend on Stampendous website. And we also have a little treat for a lucky crafter from down under - that's right, Aussie blog hoppers, we're waiting for you! What do you have to do to take part in the draw? Leave some love on the participating blogs throughout the collaboration week. The more love you leave, the more chances to win! :)

Now, onto my inspirational project for your viewing pleasure! This card makes my tummy ramble every time - and I get a total cupcake craving! Which is not ideal as I'm on a diet... but hey, at least I have a delicious stamp to keep me happy... should be enough, shouldn't it...? :) This little beauty is a cling Teacup Cupcake stamp and it is soooo yummy!
Teacups and cupcakes are my all time favourites. A cupcake in a teacup - that's just pure happiness! :)

What a great way to serve a cupcake - in a beautiful tea cup. (It is a cup cake). Your coloring is terrific and the May Arts ribbon is the perfect extra touch. Thanks from Georgia in the USA.
