Hello Cupcake!


Introducing Hazel who is a new stamp design and exclusive to Nutcraters. Katie and Collete over at Nutcrafters are excited to have launched their own stamp range - The Nutshells Collection. They are real cute designs with nut inspired names - Hazel, Tash, Mac and Coco. I am lucky to have these gals to play with so over the next few weeks I will be showing you some of the other characters.

Hazel is coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps for blending. I have added a little blush and eyeshadow to my character. I added a little stickles sparkle to the frosting on her cake. The cupcake paper is from a Smirk paper pack which I pinched from Zoe's stash :-) he he.. I don't think she'll notice ;-) The rest of the papers are from the MME Magnolia stack. I used SU photo corner punch and the flower die is from the Cuttlebug two step scribble flower set. The cute little fimo button is from my friend Stephanie and I added a tiny little gem. My sentiment is computer generated using MS Word.

Isn't this little bear just adorable? I received this cute award from the very lovely Joy yesterday... sure made me smile! Thank you Joy! There wasn't any rules with this little guy so I would like to pass this on to all my followers as a thank you for your visits, sweet comments and support. Please do take him to pass on to your friends!

Hugs,
