Need Something Quick But Yummy?

Cupcakes_2
Today i would like to show you something that was put together really fast, and a first at Pretty Pressings :-) a recipe! Tilda was already colored ( you can see the green colors in the coloring were supposed to match the DP i had planned to use her for) and cut out. A friend did a favor for me – she took my boys since i had trouble with the car. So, to give her a little something when she brought the kids back i have made those muffins.
To decorate one of the little bags, I stamped the Magnolia “loveletter” (Valentines or Love Collection) with brown Memento onto a cut out Oval shape from Neenah White paper (left the Nestabilitie on) added Tilda with pop up dots to the oval and decorated the tag with some Prima roses around the top. Well.. maybe a bit of a waste with the pearl stickers but i just loved the look of it.
