Cupcake Crafts #68 – red and green

Our challenge at Cupcake Crafts this week is to use red and green – easy peasy!!  I’m sure there’ll be lots of lovely Christmas cards popping up over blogland with this challenge.

We are pleased to welcome back The Creative Cottage as our sponsor this week and if you have not visited their blog yet you don’t know what you are missing!

They create the most fantastic digital kits that have a selection of funky design papers and elements all of which are suitable for either scrapbooking or cardmaking! Their current kits have the cutest little robins, a fairy and forest friends and even Cupcakes to tempt you! They have recently launched paper packs without the extra elements so you can just purchase the design papers on their own. Their kits are great value as you get to print the papers and elements whenever you need them so you’ll never run out of your favourite papers!

The Creative Cottage are offering one lucky winner the chance to win TWO of their digital kits this week!

Had a fabulous weekend visiting my buddy Steph along with my two other new buddies Kate and Aimes.  We were all down in Essex for Steph’s fantastic PTI Make and Take – Click to see some photos – Make and Take Weekend.  There were about 30 of all together and it was just such a brilliant day.  I travelled back last night and am exhausted but I just have to say to all the girls who I met – it was so nice to meet up with you all and thank you for making it such a huge success for Steph.  The amount of time, effort and precious PTI stash that went into it all was incredible.  I really hope to see you all again sometime.  Oh, and I was tickled pink to have won the raffle draw too – how lucky am I???
