Cupcake Craft Challenge # 55...Recipe

Morning all, well it's my last off as I go back to work hoo...I've had a fab fortnight off with the kids and it has been great to spend some time with them without having to rush here, there and everywhere...boy am I in for a shock when the alarm goes off early tomorrow lol!

We have a brand new challenge for you over at Cupcake Crafts this week...we've got a scrummy recipe for you which comprises 3 buttons, 2 design papers and 1 ribbon...easy peasy lol! We also have a sponsor this week Quixotic Paperie and they are offering one lucky winner the chance to win a £10 gift voucher to spend in their store!

I've inked up my fav crimbo stamp which is from's called 'Having a Ball' and I just love this little guy he's a joy to colour in and with a little bit of sparkle added to the fluffy bits and the snowballs that's all that needed doing! The design papers are a digi download from Summertime Designs and the kit is called 'Winter Gifts'

The ribbon, lace, buttons and gems are all from my craft stash...the sentiment is a Letraset rub-on and the snowflakes were created with a dovecraft punch! I used a Martha Stewart Flourish punch to create the wavy border but I'm not really too sure I like the end result lol! TFL :)

Another lovely card Donna, I like the wavy border although I wouldn't have guessed it to be a MS punch!
