CIC26 "But she got Cat!"

Hello! - I hope you all had a wonderful weekend. The weather here was beautiful and Saturday night my hubby and I attend a wonderful BBQ at his bosses house. It was our very first time being invited there for a "social" function. Their place is absolutely gorgeous and the landscaping was amazing. Wish I would have taken our camera but I thought that might have been a bit (odd) IYKWIM.
To start this week off how about another Delectable looking Cupcake for Hope's Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. Aren't those Chrysanthemums just gorgeous! They almost look real. I struggled at first with what I was going to do for this challenge and my original idea wasn't working out because I couldn't find the tutorial that I wanted (I need to bookmark those things)so I kept searching through my stamps and happened upon this sweet image of a cat sitting among some Chrysanthemums and I knew it would work perfectly for the challenge. Next I picked out a sketch and decided on Taylor's Inspiration Sketch for this week.
Stamps: Garden Cat and Take Good Care Greetings - (Hero Arts)
Details: Card Stock: Always Artichoke, Whisper White, Blush Blossom, Tangerine Tango, Designer Paper (source unknown - because I had this forever).
Inks: Palette Noir Black, Prisma Color Pencils
Accessories: Circle Nestabilitie Dies, Scallop Oval, Lg. Oval punches, Brads (Queen and Co.), Sewing Machine.

If you're still reading and wondered about my Page Title it actually came from a commercial (I'm not sure what was being advertised) but there were little kids in school having a spelling bee and some football player. The little girl is asked to spell cat and the football player thinks he's going to "ace" the spelling bee until the teacher says, "Spell Chrysanthemum." To which he replies, "That's not fair, she got Cat!" It made me chuckle every time I saw the commercial and I thought it was fitting for the image I chose to use.

Now it's your turn to be inspired by these yummy cupcakes. Don't forget to leave a link to your card on Hope's blog using the Mr. Linky feature.
