Cupcake Birthday Challenge & Blog Hop!

Welcome to the Cupcake Craft Challenge 2nd Birthday Blog Hop and Cupcake Trail! :)

If you've just come from Liza's Blog then you are in the right place! While you're here, please leave me a comment and then pop over to Victoria's Blog next. Don't forget to enter this weeks All the Two's Challenge at Cupcake to be eligible to win Design Team Cupcake Candy or this weeks fabulous sponsored prizes.

If you think you've lost the cake crumb trail, you can go back to Cupcake and start from the beginning!

Good Luck with your entries you have until 8pm Saturday 21 August to enter and all the winners will be announced on the Cupcake blog on Monday 23 August

As well as the Cupcake prizes, I will also be giving away a little candy surprise of my own, so if you're interested be sure to leave a comment for me so I know you've been here!

The challenge this week is 'All The Two's'... 2 papers, 2 ribbons & 2 flowers (as it's our 2nd Birthday). So here's my DT card for our Birthday Challenge using a fab image image from one of our sponsors this week, Prairie Fairy, thanks Roberta! This little digi cutie is called 'Ballerina Gillian', isn't she just fab...

I've coloured Gillian with Promarkers, and printed the little greeting from my PC. The pink ribbons is Papermania, the lilac one is from my stash. I don't know much about the papers as they were free with a magazine last year, and the little flowers are punched using a small Woodware Daisy punch. I'm entering my card for the Passion For Promarker 'Music Theme' Challenge.

Thanks for popping by today and don't forget to leave a comment! Happy Hopping!
