FM#20 Who's got that Special Cupcake?

Wow! You guys really love Cupcakes & Buttons! There were too many great cards this week. Picking a Rock Star was hard.

But, before we get to this week's Rock Star I'd like to say a Big Thank you to our August Guest Designer Jen. Her last challenge with us will be tomorrow. We loved having her as part of our team. Be sure to stop by her Blog and check out her amazing work.

And we'd like to welcome Cindy & Joan to the Friday Mashup team, they will be our Guest Designers for September.. I don't know if there is a "Mashup" challenge they've missed. Be sure to stop by their blogs and say Hi!

This week's Rock Star and Glam Squad are .... (insert drumroll*)

Paul B. of  The Artsiders. I think Paul might be our first male "Rock Star" which is very cool if you ask me! I love, love, love his cupcake card. It's pink so you know I was in love at first sight. Check out the stitching and that ribbon, it's so pretty. The icing on the cupcake image makes me want one even more now.

Congrats Paul! 

You guys made it really hard to pick a Glam Squad too this week.. So, I had to pick four because three just wasn't going to work for me. 

This is such a cute cupcake card.. I love how the buttons are handmade and that sparkly cherry on top is just the right touch. 

The pattern paper really makes this card stand out and I really like the way Keva used the U on her focal area.. And you have to check out her Blog, that cow she has on her banner is adorable! 

I really like the clean look of this card. She paired this up with two other challenges and really brought them all together with the right balance. 

It's Pink! No, that's not all... I love that cupcake image and the color combo is just right for a cupcake. The button placement is perfect for the layout she used. 

Congratulations everyone be sure to grab your badge codes above. Don't forget to stop by these blogs when you have a chance and check other some of their other great projects. Everybody loves comments!
