Cupcake Craft Challenge 156...Gift Card (Card & a Gift in One)

It's definitely a happy Monday today as I am on hols for the next three days and I'm so looking forward to spending some time with James & Sophie...I think there will be a few lunches out and maybe a bit of retail therapy too...shops here we come!

After all the excitement of last weeks birthday celebrations at Cupcake Craft Challenges and our brilliant hidden treasure hunt...we are back this week with a brand new challenge which has been chosen by lil' ole me! I've chosen something completely different and gone with a theme of A Gift Card (basically a gift and a card all in one) A while ago I made a tealight gift card and I loved the fact it was a card and a gift all in one...hence the inspiration to choose this as a challenge theme!

This time I've made these rather cute little notelets with a matching pizza gift box...if you fancy having a go at making one of these yourself you can find a tutorial here and if I can follow the tut so can you...very easy to make and useful for so many different occasions!

This weeks sponsor is Bugaboo Stamps and they offering the lucky winner 7 digi images from their choice!

We have three scrummilicious 'Icing on the Cupcake' sponsors for you this month...

Hi Donna! You know I've made this pizza box before but yours looks so much better - that layering really makes a huge difference and the flower on top is perfect! Girl, you're such a natural at putting these beauties together. I love the embossing - how it stands out. I love how you coordinated the cards so well with the top of the box - excellent - will have to try your way! Good for you to be on holiday and spend time with the kidlets. I know you will have fun - plus that's MY kind of day!
