The Outlawz CAS Challenge + Awesome News

Hellooooo cyber cuties!!! I am back.....in the BEST way...wanna know why I chose those words? It is because I have a NEW computer!!!! Yahoooooo!!!!! I am so super excited to be able to blog again regularly...I adore my iPad, but I could not accomplish any blog posting nor challenge posting (a DT duty) and it was driving me CRAZY!!! I truly disliked having to borrow someone's computer to get that stuff done. My hubby gave me my birthday present early...ta da....the new laptop. Best Buy is having some crazy Back 2 School sales right now and I truly believe that they are better than what will be available the day after Thanksgiving and at Christmas. Now the one we purchased fits my needs...it is not number 1 on the Geek-O-Meter, as I like to call it, but it is perfect for me to do what I need to :) I cannot wait to try to Skype as well...just have to find someone to do it with...hee hee ;)
Here is this week's Outlawz Challenge...you are challenges to make a CAS style card with the most tiny stamp that you own. I chose the mini cupcake by Doodlebug. I included a pic with my finger for scale purposes. This little bugger was tough to line up straight on the acrylic block...it kept sticking to my fingernail ;) Hope that you will play along with us this week!
"Happy Birthday":

Supplies Used:
Card:
Cardstock: Unknown (using up scraps)
Patterned Paper: Unknown (using up scraps)
Ink: Memento Tuxedo Black (Tsukineko)
Stamps: Cupcake (Doodlebug); Sentiment (Inkadinkado)
Rhinestone: Kasiercraft
Other: Colored Pencils (Heidi Swapp)

Close Up of the scale of the Cupcake Stamp....told you it was tiny....lol ;)

Here it is in all it's micro glory....remember, good things come in small packages....I guess we could go as far as to say this is the world's lowest calorie cupcake!

Just a little note before signing off...thinking and praying for all of those affected by hurricane Irene....whether it be yourself, friends, loved ones...I have you all in my heart...it is a pretty big one, so I know that I can fit you all in there....safe and sound....with room for more :)
Love and hugs to all!

Yay for the new laptop!!! We got ours on one of those really good deal days... I think ours was Black Friday though. Keith stood outside the store door from 4AM until 5AM when they opened. Nice thing is, the store is right across the street from our house and he walked. He was first in line because everyone else had stayed in their cars to keep warm. LOL... anyway, had to share that. And I'm glad to see you back! The card is super cute!! It turned out great!!
