Magical Mondays - Cocktails, Cupcakes and Cheer

By the title of my post I may have you all thinking I am indulging a bit too much for a Monday Morning, but alas no I haven't even had a cup of coffee yet this morning.  It is simply the sentiment I have used on my Birthday Card for the latest challenge over at There is Magic in the Air!



This week the DT got to play with the fabulous new Margarita Cupcake Image from Paper Cupcakes and Nina is kindly offering this image as a freebie for you this week. So you can use it to play along with our challenge this fortnight which is to use one of the two provided sketches to create your card.


For my card today, I have used the first sketch shown above and some yummy papers from a Carolyn Gavin Designer Mat Pad that I brought some time ago.  Using my Tria Markers and Kindy Glitz I have colored in the cupcake and paper pieced for some extra dimension.  Buttons and a strip of ric rac punched cardstock along with my computer generated sentiment finish it off. 

Be sure to pop over and take a peek at all the fabulous inspiration by the DT this fortnight including our July GD using the Margarita Cupcake.  There is lots of yummy cards for you to view and get you in the creating mood, so you can play along with us.

We are still in the middle of a winter here so this card now has me thinking of summer, and how we always tend to entertain in the warmer months with a BBQ and a few drinks.  It also has me wondering just what a Margarita Cupcake would taste like........would you be able to eat and drive?

Anyway enough of my daydreams I'd best be off.  I hope you all have a wonderful day full of cheer at the very least if it can't be full of Cocktails and Cupcakes too.

This week I am also entering this card into the following Challenges:-

The Crafty Bloggers Network - Anything Goes Challenge

This looks just yummy. Gorgeous papers and I love the glitter. You did a great job on the sketch. Winter, we have had lots of hot weather/margarita days, it was in triple digits for over a week. Cooler today.
