Happy Sunday! The last Sunday in January too! Sundays are my favorite day of the week. It's almost as if it's a weekly holiday --- it has an air of reverence and peace to it unlike the rest of the week. Probably I feel this way being raised in a preacher's home. Sundays were somewhat busy, but also quiet and reflective. At least as a child, no one went shopping (stores were all closed on Sundays back then). My mom always cooked a big meal after church and then the rest of the day was devoted to quiet, partly because you didn't want to wake up the napping preacher(forget the wrath of God at that point)! LOL
However, even though now we don't attend church presently, Sunday still have that special feel to me. So I guess it's no surprise I spend a good bit of Sundays in my craft room if possible and perusing challenges and crafty blogs online. So it's fitting that a year ago I became a design team member on Cupcake Inspirations, which always starts a new challenge on Sunday!
So, grab your favorite beverage and check out this week's challenge over at Cupcake Inspirations Challenge blog and look at all the great projects my fellow teammates have designed for your inspiration!

We want to see your projects using CHERRIES!
Is that not a fun and luscious inspirational photo?
The design team was given the image, Cherry Top Cupcake, to work with for the challenge. It was perfect for it!
For some reason, my photo didn't turn out so well. I've moved my craft room stuff around a bit and got a new light to use with my light box so I guess it will take some more experimenting. I try to use natural light but Saturday was a dismal cloudy, rainy day and it didn't cooperate with my camera! (yeah, that's my excuse, hahaha)
I used the sketch at Mojo Monday for it. I wanted to use both colors of my cherry patterned paper I've had for ages. I believe it's Mary Engelbreit. I so love her stuff, I wish she made more for the stamp world!
You can find my supply list at the end of this post.
