Happy Birthday, Joy!

Hi, everyone!  Hopefully, you've been able to follow Joy's Design Team lately since we've all been wishing her a Happy Birthday!  Her actual birthday is the 19th but we thought we'd extend the celebration for the entire week!!!

I thought I'd mix a couple of my hobbies for this post.  Here's what I created! 

I tell you, my mouth seems to water when I'm crocheting these cupcakes because they look soooo  yummy!!!

The stamp I used is from Joy's Yummy Puns set. Pick up your own set here.

Now for how I made this... I crocheted the cupcake in the round (Amigurumi) and filled the bottom of it with rice and the top with some fiberfill before stitching it shut.  Here's a link to a free pattern that you may want to try.

The "sprinkles" are metallic pins I picked up at my local hobby shop. A Sizzix die cut the tag that I embellished using some colorful ribbon and a super cute Doodlebug cupcake brad.

It may be arriving a little late in the mail for Joy's birthday but I hope she enjoys it when she gets it!
