Cupcake Craft Challenge # 132...Pink Polka Dots

Ooooh's Monday weekend has gone by in a flash...we were out all day yesterday at a majorette competition and the girls did really well...there were no pom routines...just military marching and considering this is the first competition of this type that Sophie has done she did really well and got 2 first places...Military March(straight leg) and Basic Strut (high knees)...the troupe took 1st place in their only team event which was Freestyle March...a big well done to all the girls! I didn't manage to take any pics at the competition so thought I'd show a piccy of her trophies instead...proud Mum moment lol!'s card is for Cupcake and we are back with another fab challenge for you this week! We ran a competition recently for Cupcake followers to nominate a theme for this weeks challenge and it was Em who won...her chosen theme is PINK POLKA DOTS...not only did Em get to chose the theme but she also gets to guest design with us too! You can see her GDT creation over at Cupcake and don't forget to check out the rest of the Cupcakes cards whilst you are there!

We are sponsored by our regular monthly sponsor this week...Simon Says Stamp and they are offering a $20 gift certificate to the winner.

Our monthly sponsor for March is Wild Rose Studio and they are offering two stamps to the winner from their Spring 2011 collection...piccy's of the stamps are over on the Cupcake challenge blog!

Donna, thanks for the lovely comments you leave on my blog. You always say the nicest things that make me feel so good. I'm so lucky to have you as a blogger friend. So glad the girls won in their event. I love the trophies - makes me wish we had something like that when I was a kid! Your papers on this card are so cute, as always - you have the best paper stash! I love the polka dots anyway but love how they match the gift. That little image is too cute! Your coloring is perfect too! You know how I love your organza ribbon - the buttons on the flower and bow really complete the "girliness" of this card. I love the paper piercing - wow, it's perfect! Great sentiment. I don't think you can ever make a dull card; they are always perfect and exciting! Grrrrr!!! :-) I'll have to scrap lift!
