Humour - Sweet Stampin' DT

Good morning my dears!

It's Saturday, which means a new challenge over at Sweet Stampin', and it's Team Fi week, which means I get to share my DT project with you all.

And this week, the theme is Humour, which proved to be oddly difficult for a lot of us over at SS Towers! But we all got there in the end. Even me, who couldn't find a single humorous stamp in her entire collection, but found a way around it by combining a regular one with a funny sentiment... Like so:

The image is of course from Stamping Bella, Uptown girl Caitlyn is having a cupcake party. I stamped her on a square of white card, which I matted with pink pearlescent card. I did the same with the sentiment (which was a magazine freebie this Christmas). There's a lot of Stickles on the image too (Stardust and a blue one I can't remember, lol) and of course she was coloured in with Promarkers.

Although if you ask me, it's only funny because it's true! lol. Seriously, it is. I keep making cupcakes for school bun fairs and such, and then eat most of them myself, lol! In fact, I have here a picture of the batch I made for Valentine's day!

Chocolate strawberry swirl cupcakes with chocolate fudge icing (which is, if I may say so myself, to die for!) and some hearts cut out of icing.
I don't really do baking, but I must say, I do a delicious cupcake! :-)

Anyways, enough about that, it's time for you all to go check out what the rest of the Sweeties have come up with (let's face it, after all the hard work they put in trying to come up with something funny, the least you can do is go take a looksee!) and then you can join in with us yourselves to have a chance at winning the weekly Crafts U Love prize, or the monthly Cuddly Buddly one!

Have fun!

The chocolate on those cakes looks so choccy and yummy Sammy, I am a bit of a chocoholic - not bad for a diabetic is it.

The image on your card is lovely, I like the simplistic elegance of it.

Hope you have a good weekend.

Love the sentiment. It makes the card smilerific. By the way licking the screen doesn't taste anything like the real cupcakes. YUK! LOL. cleans the screen nicely though. LOL.

This card definitely made me laugh and I love how your fab image takes centre stage. I love to bake so have to give lots away otherwise I would be enormous! Cupcakes are my fave thing to make and yours look really pretty and most importantly, very yummy!
