Introducing New Sweetie--Christine

We are so excited to introduce one of our new Sweeties, Christine!
Christine will be joining us in August on Team B.
You can find her amazing work on her website Sweet Pea Cards
Hello my name is Christine Garner.  I live in North Carolina with my husband Eric  and 2 wonderful children.  We also have 4 guinea pigs named Buttons. Little One, Cookie, and Ashes. I have been paper crafting for several years now.  I like designing cards and planner spreads.  I think of this as my therapy for stress and other things that go on.  I mostly color my images with Prismacolor Pencils. I do use Tim Holtz Distress Markers and Inks to make my projects also. I look forward to inspiring you and see your wonderful projects.

Introducing New Sweetie--Ishani

We are so excited to introduce one of our new Sweeties, Ishani!
Ishani will be joining Team A next week. 
You can find her amazing work on her website Quillish.




I am Ishani, from India. Since childhood I have loved getting my hands smeared with glue and colours. But, the student life and then the work life didn't leave much time to pursue a hobby. I started quilling around two years back as a stress buster and started making cards by incorporating quilled elements. With the internet full of ideas and inspiration, I ventured into using stamps and colouring with different supplies to make cards. I love to learn and experiment new techniques. From a hobby, card making has become a passion, which is also yoga for me. The way I was inspired by other's work, I hope my work inspires a few too.

CIC412-Sparkle N Sprinkle

Hello Sweeties...Welcome back to Cupcake Inspiration Challenge!  Hope you didn't miss us too much during the break.

Grab a bit of cake and a cup of coffee because we have all kinds of news to share with you before we get to this week's challenge!

As we start this new semester we are excited to let you know that CIC is getting a bit of a face lift this semester.  Isn't that exciting?  Last January our Head Bakers Nina and Jen stepped down and long time Design Sweetie Debbie assumed the rigorous task of Head Baker.  We are excited to announce that this semester that EK has stepped up as Head Decorator and will be bringing you all kinds of wonderful cupcakes to feast your eyes on.

We also sad to say that we losing some of our wonderful Sweeties to new adventures.  Many of our Sweeties have been long time designers and we are very sad to see them depart.
However, on a more exciting note, over the coming weeks we will be introducing several new Sweeties to our Family!  To continue to bring you new challenges each week, we are still working with two separate design teams (the even and odd teams), each as equally talented. 

And without Further ado, this week's Challenge!  

We are sponsored this week by Sparkle N Sprinkle.
