Love from the Mom in Me (CIC247)

Here's is this week's inspiration cupcake.
Our challenge is LOVE.  

Lover's Day Cupcakes by Juliana Morgado

Here's my take...

I had to use this image 'Book Time' when I saw it because there is nothing like loving my kids. I choose to love my husband, and I do love him so very much, but I don't have a choice when it comes to my kids. They get my love whether they want it or not. :) 

I used Stampin' Up Sahara Sand card base and Real Red layer. I colored my image with my Prismacolor Pencils. The 'love' stamp is from that same un-named set. I know, I know! I'm still kicking myself for getting rid of the packaging (and for not using it sooner.). The 'you & me' is from an October Afternoon set that has the owl in it. Can't seem to find the name of this one anywhere either. Arg. I stamped both sentiments in Versamark and clear embossed them to give some shine. 

Thanks for looking! Hope this finds you happy and healthy.
