Cupcake anyone?

Hi hi.

So it's Sunday again and I haven't posted my make for this weeks Besties challenge again.  Before I get into that, take a look at these!!

Aren't they scrumptious!!!  Now I cant take credit for these though I would love to ( who would know??).  These were made by a friend of mine.
What I did make is this cute little cupcake topper.  Goes perfectly together don't you think?  Also fits in with the Besties challenge requirement of two shades of blue.

The sentiment says "Have a fabulous birthday"

Over at Crafting When We Can, the challenge is Birthstones.  So on the back of the topper I chose to include a verse from the Gregorian Birthstone Poems for the month of December .  The birthstone for December is turquoise hence matching the 'blue' theme.
The verse reads:
If cold December gave you birth,
The month of snow and ice and mirth,
Place on your hand a turquoise blue;
Success will bless whatever you do.
Of course if I were to use this topper for birthdays in any other month, I wouldn't include this verse.

Here is a close up of the coloured image.  I might have bits of cupcake stuck to parts of it... heheee.  Try to look past that.  The Image used is Lolita.  An image by Sherri Baldy from Scrapbook Stamp Society.  Careful, her cute images are addictive!

Here is a picture of the cupcake and topper alone.

Well, that is my make for today.  I would have loved to show you an army of Lolitas sitting on a whole table full of cupcakes (because that would really be something to feast your eyes on) but that would have taken me all too long and then I wouldn't be able to finish this post.  Even though there is only one made up topper, I hope you liked it anyway.

Thanks for stopping by today.
