Cupcake Challenge 126

Hello everyone, sorry I'm a little late with this post! Today over on Cupcake Challenge 126 we have a theme of food for thought and this week we are sponsored by Heather Ellis and she is giving the lucky winner their choice of three digi images.

For my card I used Tilda with Ice Cream and the post strawberry sentiment from the Magnolia Lazy Summer Days Collection 2009. The image is colored with copics and the DPs and embellishments were included in a Magnolia DT kit from a while ago. I used my MS trellis punch for the punched edge and I stiched around all the elements with my sewing machine.

This month there is a slight change to our monthly prize, it is simply going to be an extra chance for you to win! This month our icing on the cupcake is sponsored by Blue Jelly Stampin', Polkadoodles and The Paper Shelter...we have some totally fabby prizes so make sure you join in!

We also have a new challenge on the blog this week....please see the details below....

The Cupcakes were talking about future Challenges recently and we decided it's not really fair for us to pick them all the time. So we'd like to give you the opportunity to Challenge us too. Not only that, but the (randomly chosen) winner will also be invited to Guest Design for us on the week in March when their Challenge goes live at Cupcake!

Sound like fun? If you'd like to set a Theme and Guest Design for us, leave your idea in a comment on this post HERE.

We'll close this competition at 8pm (GMT)Sunday 30 January.
