Cupcake Inspiration Challenge #25

Happy Sunday! Fall is fast approaching and this weeks Cupcake Inspiration Challenge from Rachel over at Hope Stamps Eternal is perfect for getting you into the Fall mood. I just love the cool, crisp air that arrives this time of year and watching the leaves change colors.
Fall is my absolute favorite season, mostly because I get to wear my favorite choice of clothing. On Sundays it's Green and Yellow for my fave football team the Green Bay Packers but every other day of the week I am in jeans and a t-shirt usually with some type of coordinating hoodie or sweatshirt. :) I also enjoy Fall for the holidays of Halloween and Thanksgiving...which then means that Christmas is not too far behind.

Anyway, onto the super sweet Cupcake Inspiration Challenge. Aren't these cuppie cakes so yummy looking?
Make sure you get a chance to play along with me and the rest of the HSE Sweeties! Cupcake stamps are always optional...these cupcake pictures are here for inspiration only.
Take what inspires you in these pictures whether it be the color, theme, texture, etc. and roll with it!
Make sure to link your card up to Rachel's blog using Mr. Linky and when uploading to online galleries use keyword: CIC25.

I used AmyR's Friday Sketch Challenge 7 from this past Friday. I am featuring Miss Anya from The Greeting Farm. You can purchase this super fun stamp set from HSE. The tiny little pearls in the center of the flowers are from Zva Creative which are also available at Hope Stamps Eternal. Zva has some awesome embellishments and dimensional adhesives for a super low price. Make sure to check out all they have to offer in bling, pearls, rhinestones, dimensionals, etc.
