Cupcake Craft Challenge 126 - Food For Thought

Good morning all you lovely people out there in the big wide blogosphere! Are you feeling peckish? Well if you are don't panic as this week at Cupcake Craft Challenge we've got some 'Food For Thought'... well that's the title of our new challenge chosen by the very talented Donna! So get baking up a lovely card or project with a food theme and you could be in with a chance to win some rather yummy stash! We're sponsored this week by...
who designs the most adorable stamps and digis, and she's offering 3 fabulous digi stamps to one lucky winner! Not only that but we have our monthly Icing on the Cupcake sponsors too...
So lots of tasty stash to get your teeth into! We also have a special competition running this week called 'What's the Challenge? You Decide!' where we want YOU to challenge us... check out the details HERE! Oh and don't forget to have a look at the rest of the Design Team's fabulously yummy creations this week, and if you have time to leave us a comment please do, we love to here from you too!

The Design Team were kindly given some of Heather's fabulous designs to work with, and so I chose this rather sweet cupcake cutie, isn't she gorgeous!? I've coloured her with Promarkers and added some sparkle to her cupcake. I made the background paper using some free clear stamps from my Do Crafts Magazine, again coloured using my Promarkers. I have to admit, I rather like this cute homemade paper... I think I'll have to try this method again soon! As not to make the card too busy, I simply added the ribbon (recycled from a Xmas pressie) the sentiment and pearls et voila! I'm entering my card into the following challenges...
Papertake Weekly Challenge - Ribbons & Pearls
Stamp Something - Cute Somethings
Stamp, Scrap & Doodle - Anythings Goes
Thanks so much for popping by today... I'm off to have a needle stuck in my arm now (don't get any ideas... just a blood test... and I hate needles)... wish me luck!
