Pink Polka Dots

Time for another Cupcake Fluffers! Morning and Hello!

This week, our Challenge Competition Winner, Emily, joins us as a Guest Cupcake and has chosen Pink Polka Dots as our theme. Basically, if it's pink and it has polka dots on it, we want to see it. I think this is going to be a popular one! Do pop over to Emily's lovely blog and leave her some love, she makes the most wonderful creations. As it's the first challenge of the month, we are joined by Simon Says Stamp and we have a new monthly sponsor, Wild Rose Studios.

I made this card a while ago and unusually, I'm really pleased with how it turned out. When I was thinking about this project, I had the 'wonderful' idea of paper piecing the little cupcake cases. Don't let me do it again. I don't know, confiscate my Mojo or something, but don't let me near the scissors. I'll say one thing. Fiddly. Nuff said.

Last week, Stacey was sweet enough to give me this lovely award. Stacey makes the most wonderful and thoughtful projects and is a lovely lady too.

To accept this award, I need to:

Thank the person that gave it to me: Thank you for thinking of me, Stacey

Tell you three sweet things that have happened in my life:

My boys

I love surprises, but I'm a bit of a minx and also love sniffing them out. I'm like a Fluffie with a Cupcake! My Mum and Dad always made a special effort to organise surprises for our birthdays, which must have been extra hard work with me around!

Very Understanding Hubby made me a craft snug. Ok, I asked him to, but he made it to my exact instructions!

Pass this award to three sweet Bloggers (Never very good at following rukes, so I'm rebelling!):
Last week, Debbie sent me the most mahoosive pile of pink stash you have ever seen. I'm telling you, I've never seen so much pink stuff in one place!

Terry also recently sent me some gorgeous stash, just because I sent her some Gorjuss Girl images

My Cyber Sis has the knack of saying exactly the right thing at exactly the right time and is lovely too

Donna and Denise
Who have been Cupcake Angels for me the past few weeks

Abi, Carrie, Tracey, Delphine, Terry and Loop
Always seem to know when I'm struggling and look out for me

How many is that? Ten. Ok, Sue me! ;) I have been given some other awards too, but as this is fast turning into the Fluffie version of War and Peace, I'll save those for another day!

Well, you've seen my card, don't forget to pop over and see The Cupcakes scrummy cards. We're bursting at the seams with gorgeous Guest Designers this week, so be sure to stop by...
