Sweet Niblets!

WELL....MAYBE, just maybe, we watch too much Disney Channel around here......

If you also watch a lot of Disney Channel, then you would recognize the "sweet niblets" phrase from Hannah Montana Forever.  :)  We allow most anything on Disney for the simple fact that not everything that is on regular television channels in thne evening are deemed appropriate for my 5 year old.....lol.  I find myself even lingering on the Disney Channel when flipping channels even when my little one os in bed....HAHA!!!  Not that is some honest confessions of a mom.......

Wondering where I am going with this?  You should be!  lol!!  The Create with Connie and Mary Challenge, of course.  This week's challenge is an inspiration challenge - the picture is a cake - get it?  Sweet Niblets - cake - sweet - tiny bites - niblets.......grasping at straws, I know.  hehehe  Check out the inspiration piece:

Doesn't that look awesome???

I went with colors pulled from it.....but used a deeper blue than the cake.   Wanna see what I came up with?

ok, ok.......


Well?  Did I disappoint you?  I hope not......

Oh - you don't regognize the stamp set????  Well - that is the new set, Strength and Hope that Stampin'Up! has released this month.  Stampin' Up! will donate $2 for every set sold to breast cancer research.  I really wanted to show that you can do so much more with it other than the obvious Breast Cancer colors and themes. 

The butterfly from Strength and Hope is soooo gorgeous, isn't it?  I embossed it onto the new Paisley Petals designer series paper with clear embossing powder and covered it with not quite navy ink and buffed the ink off the embossed areas.  Take a closer look:

The sentiment is from Springtime Smiles out of the Occassions mini.  And the seam binding ribbon - delish!  Well....that about sums it up - have a wonderful day!
