Unusually Sweet!

Hello Hello and Welcome!!!

My name is Buttercup and I have a sweet tooth!  Or, sweet teeth!  That's more like it.  Almost all of my teeth are cravers of that something sweet!  I plan on eating celery and peanut butter, but somehow, mini milk chocolate cadbury eggs find their way into my face.  Who knows how that happens?  It must be science or magic or something like that. haha.  I'm blaming it on the Easter Bunny!

But hey, maybe not every single day, but from time to time, life calls for a cupcake the size of one's head, don't you agree?  :) I must say, Christy Croll at Tiddly Inks knows how to capture this exact look in her cling stamp set entitled "Sweet Tooth"!  Sweet Tooth rocks the striped tights which I adore, wears a fabulous dress and carries the heftiest cupcake I have ever seen!!!  Talk about a Lucky Girl!!!
