Nyack and the winter....





**POST 1 for Friday, July 16




Hello, friends:)


I've got a quick post for you today--I'm linking this creation up to the Paper Smooches GDT challenge. I just love these Paper Smooches images--and I love love love paper piecing them! I think PS stamps and I are a match made in HEAVEN:}


I wanted to make a winter scene on top of cupcakes (chocolate chip cookie dough cupcakes with cookie dough buttercream frosting--made from scratch)....but I forgot that the buttercream is more CREAM!! There is no such thing as cream snow! LOL! Either way--I love how these guys turned out. I used my Swanky Snowdudes and Santa Paws stamp sets. LOVE that sign--I used the pole and stamped it twice to make an extra long city sign. I am entering these SWEET cupcakes into the Paper Issues Life is Sweet challenge! I am also entering these creations into the Simon Says Stamp Anything Goes Challenge! LOVE it! 
**The reason behind Nyack and these cupcakes in the middle of summer is that my friend, Daria, is moving to Nyack in a week or so. We are throwing her a party tonight to help her get ready for the cold. These stamps made it perfect for this theme! 


That's it for me! I hope you are doing well! THANKS so much for stopping by! I'll be back soon with more to share:} Be blessed!

Yes, it sounds like your friend is moving up to my neck of the woods and it gets just a little bit frigid up here in January...so...those cupcakes are a perfect tribute to her move! And tasty, too!
