** THIS IS MY SECOND POST FOR TODAY **
Please scroll down to see my Stamp with Fun DT card
Hello again and welcome back to a very special post. I have lots to tell you so grab a cuppa and a biscuit and settle down as this is going to be a long post!
Today over at cupcake craft challenge as well as our normal challenge we are having a blog hop to celebrate our new DT members joining us for the first time. So I’ll give you the info for the blog hop first and then I’ll post the details for this week’s challenge as normal.
Thanks for joining us for the Hello Cupcake Blog Hop. If you've just arrived from Delphine then you're in the right place! While you're here, please leave a comment and then hop over to Donna. Don't forget to leave a comment on each blog in the hop, including cupcake and our guest designer Hayley's for a chance to win the candy from funky farm scrapbook barn. If you’ve stumbled across my blog and are a little bit lost please go back to the beginning of the blog hop here. This is a picture of the gorgeous candy you can win in the hop. To celebrate the blog hop Hayley is also generously offering everyone 10% discount on purchases made at Funky Farm Scrapbook Barn until midnight 9th May, just enter CUPCAKEBH (exactly as shown) at checkout.
Now onto this week’s challenge and the theme this week is “something beginning with C”. You can use whatever you like as long as it belongs with the letter C i.e. cake, cars, chocolate, cerise etc! Here is my card:
To fit the theme I have used an image by Mo Manning called ‘what’s Cooking’, the colour Cerise and also I’ve added a Circle. Isn’t the image so sweet and I’ve coloured her with my promarkers. This is a Mother’s Day card that I made that I didn’t have a chance to share with you at the time. My cardstock is actually cerise (hot pink) but for some reason it looks red in the picture – strange!
Our sponsor this week is Simon Says Stamp and one lucky winner will receive a £20.00 voucher to spend in their online store.
We also have our ‘icing on the cupcake’ sponsor and for May that is Crafts U Love and they are offering one lucky winner a £15.00 voucher to spend in their online store.
The design team (including our newbies) have done an amazing job, so please pop over to the challenge blog and check them out. We really appreciate all the lovely comments you leave for us.
