SWEET Dreams!

I've decided that I need to keep a notebook beside my bed at night. I've noticed lately that right as I am about to drift off to sleep... I get flashes of images in my head for card designs. Freaky, isn't it? Usually I forget them by the time morning comes, but this idea stuck and I wanted to hurry and try it out!

I've been bitten by the CHF bug lately and am starting to get a small collection of stamps from the Kim Hughes Collection. One of the sets - "Tag, You're It!" - has a tiny smiley face image. I remember thinking at the time, "I wonder if I'll ever use that stamp?"

About a week ago, my latest order came in and I fell in love with the little cupcake image from the "Hugs & Kisses" set.
So... what do you think? Doesn't it look like this little smiley face was meant to be part of this cute little dessert?!? Simple, I know --- but I think it gives it a lot of personality.

*Stamps: CHF: Tag! You're It!; Hugs & Kisses
* Paper: We R Memory Keepers Precious Metal Collection Paper Kit - Vintage Brass; Chocolate Chip CS (SU)
*Accessories: American Crafts Thickers (Sweater Felt Letters); Stickles Glitter (Frosted Lace - applied to felt letters) (Fruit Punch - applied to cupcake liner and heart); SU Jumbo Eyelets in Pewter; Small Corner Rounder (to create scalloped edge); Photo Corner Punch
