I made this card for the April Sketch Challenge over at Rubber Stamp Chat.
I used two stamps from Viva Las Vegas Stamps. Sleepy Eyed Basset (item #2176) and Big Eared Dog (item 1310).
I stamped each image onto beige cardstock using Walnut Stain Distress Ink by Ranger. I cropped each image and matted them onto tan cardstock. I also used a scrap of sparkly bone paper and trimmed it to a 2" square. I punched a circle out of the center and used pop dots to adhere it to a slightly larger square of dark brown cardstock. I glued a bone button to the center. I adhered each element to the card, following the sketch that Stampo posted on Rubber Stamp Chat.

Todd and I made these cupcakes for Easter. Todd made the cupcakes and frosting from scratch and I decorated them. I'm going to bring some to work on Monday to share with my coworkers.
These were really fun to make. We were inspired by the Bakerella blog. We didn't find this idea until Saturday, so the stores were really picked over and the little foil wrapped bunnies were nowhere to be found. We used the chocolate cupcake recipe posted at Bakerella and it is really yummy.
