Cupcake Craft Challenge and Hello Cupcake Blog Hop!

Hiya peeps! Right this post serves two purposes... firstly it's to announce the new challenge over at Cupcake Craft Challenges which is Something Beginning with C...and secondly it's to let you know that we're having a HELLO CUPCAKE BLOG HOP to introduce our new Cupcake DT members and celebrate our new image! So here's my Design Team card for our Something Beginning with C Challenge, my Cs are CHERRY CUPCAKES & CHARM!

Ok, my cute image and recipe sentiment are from Lili of the Valley... don't these little mice look so adorable?! I've coloured them with Promarkers and added LOTS of glitter to the cupcakes! The little cherries are done using Craftwork Cards Card Candy with little leaves cut from green paper. My card is for the following challenges:

Cupcake Inspirations Challenge - Inspired by my Mam's baking YUM!

We're sponsored for this week's challenge by Simon Says Stamp who are giving away a fab $20 Gift Certificate! We also have a new monthly sponsor, Crafts U Love, who will be giving a £15 Gift Voucher to our lucky winner at the end of the month!

Please pop by the Cupcake blog to check out all the lovely DT creations, and if you have time please leave a comment, we love to hear from you! It'd also be a nice way of welcoming our new DT members, so show them some love ;)
