Happy Birthday Cupcake! Paper Sundaes Challenge

*******Only a few more days left for my BLOG CANDY!! Check it out!!

Good Sunday morning to ya!  So I mentioned the other day that I was NOT doing anything this weekend. So far, I have stuck to the plan basically!  I did go on 2 bike rides, took my baby girl to a Fancy Nancy reading at Barne and Noble. The girls all looked so cute. They all went dressed up. We kept getting stopped and asked if she was in a dance recital.  Last night we sat around and watched movies. Today we will probably go on another bike ride, pool for some swimming and clean the house some. Boy does it need that! 

My little Kare-bear is in the fancy little purple dress at the end...

We don't have any other big plans for Easter. Everybody was kind of busy, so I will sit around and eat my great-grandmas Easter Bread that I made by myself for the first time this year. My mom usually makes all the "old" recipes, but I have started to attempt them by myself.  Which has NOT been easy, let me tell you! First if you saw the way this recipes were written's crazy lol  It's usually in ingredients only and usually it's lb's of everything because my grandma's use to make enough to feed an army! I swear!!   So last year my parents were living with me for a few months while they were waiting to close on their house, which ended up taking FOREVER. Needless to say we were together through a few important holidays so while my mom made the family goodies, I helped and  wrote down more accurate directions and actual amounts for the ingredients.  So my first attempt at Italian Easter Bread came out great, I must say.  Taste like grandmas...could have used a bit more Anise...but was still yummy!

Enough about me....Paper Sundaes is having a RECIPE challenge this week. We are being sponsored by Stamp and Create and we want you to see any two of these :  yellow, glitter, die cuts or pearls!!

This litte stamp from CC Designs is called  Swiss Pixie-Cupcake Brigitta.  I see she is sold out right now, but I am sure she will be getting her back in soon!  The sentiment is from Catslife Press and those fabby papers are from Echo Parks - Summer Days. I have been buying more and more 6x6 paper pads. I just love them for cardmaking. The print is always so perfect. Especially for paper piecing dresses, as I did here. The 6x6 papers are a scaled down design so they are great for paper piecing!  The solid CS came from my stash of papers. The circle is cut out with a spellbinder and matte is Lacey Circles spellbinder.  It's really hard to see in the photos but there is glitter all over this. Around the cardstock edges, on the flowers, on the cupcakes, on the wings....little bit on the dress...yup, she is glittered up!

Hope you can join us in the recipe challenge this week.  Check out the Paper Sundaes blog and all the other DT's fabulous work...there are some adorable cards this week!
