Love is in the Air Blog Hop!

If you have arrived here from Debbie's Blog, you are in the right place!  Welcome to the third stop on the hop!

I created the "Cupcake" with some inspiration from my fellow Close To My Heart Consultant, Cindy Prado.  Thanks, Cindy!

So, you're saying, "A cupcake. What's the big deal?" Here's the view from the back:

I plan on filling it with some chocolate!
Chocolate IS a big deal! - at least in my world.  I consider it the 5th food group!  I know, I need help!!

Cindy used the image from the Art Philosophy Cricut Cartridge®.  I had some of these in my stash of goodies:

I covered it with some papers from the Stella Collection from Close To My Heart®, crimped the yellow cardstock for the cup, and added some hearts.  It's a quick and easy gift idea!

Now, on to the details of this hop!

First, I have a prize to give away:

Aren't they the sweetest bunnies?  And they're just in time for Easter!

Here's how you can win this stamp set:
1.  Become a follower of this blog.
2.  Leave me a comment letting me know that you are following my blog.
3.  Post this giveaway on your blog (if you have one).
That's it!  Pretty easy, huh?
I'll pick the winner on Friday, February 17th!

Now, there are more prizes, since this is a Frosted Designs Blog Hop!  Check this out:
