It's a grower...


Morning Flufettes. Monday morning of course means time for a Cupcake. This is the card that caused me days of choosing papers, switching back again, going away, coming back, colouring two sets of images, before finally poking my Mojo in the eye! Since I finished this card, I've been hiding it because I wasn't happy with it, but looking at it now, it's growing on me a bit.

So what's it all about? This week, I've chosen the Challenge and it's In The Garden. (I wish! Still too cold for me.) Incorporate something you'll find in the garden on your project and I'll be happy.

We're sponsored by Sassy Studio Designs this week and our May Monthly sponsor is Crafts U Love. But that's not all. To celebrate the arrival of our wonderful new Cupcake, Jane, The Ribbon Girl have given us some scrummy stash to give away.


If you'd like a chance to get your mitts on a five metre bundle of each of the eleven colours of Bakers Twine that The Ribbon Girl stock, head over to Jane's Blog and leave a comment on today's post. We'll randomly draw a winner from there at the end of the week.

Well you've seen my card, what are you waiting for? Pop over to Cupcake and see what the rest of the girls have created.

Have a great week...
