Monday, Monday!

Can you believe it's Monday again? Already? I hope you had a great weekend... It's been soooooooooo hot. Very Understanding Hubby says it's just me having multiple power surges! Well, actually, he calls them hot flushes, I call them power surges. Either way, as it's the middle of summer (guffaw), and I'm only twenty six, (guffaw) it's not hormonal! Pah. Yep, I'm grumpy, I've not had my first cup of tea in the cupcake mug yet. Remember, bad things happen to me all day if I get a cup of tea in the wrong mug for that time of day! ;)

So, I've got a double DT card for you again this week.

First things first, over at Cupcake, we're celebrating the Old Girl turning 150. This week is our 150th Challenge, so we've decided to let you choose your Favourite Cupcake Challenge from the last 150. To make things easier for you, the whole Catalogue is over there for you to choose from. I've gone with this cutesome sketch from way back at Week 15!

We're joined this week by Lili of the Valley and our Icing on the Cupcake this month is provided by Polka Doodles. Hop on over to Cupcake for a goosey at The Cupcakes faberoony work, and to get all the details.

I wanted to show this little guy on his own as I added some silver thread for his fishing line and the big photo is not picking it up that well...

Monday morning also means a new Challenge at Pollycraft and this week, we'd like to see The Great Outdoors. We're sponsored by Crafty Emma's Store. All the details are, of course, over at Pollycraft, along with the lovely work from the rest of the DT.

Now, you may remember, Paula was giving one of you Fluffettes the chance to win the sweet Little Star image I used on the card I made last week. Well, Lisa, it's you! Please could you e-mail me, and I'll get your Digi sent over. :)

Right, I think that's me done. Don't forget you still have a week left to play with my sketch at Sketch n Stash...

Your card is adorable Fluff ! Love the fishy paper and this image is too sweet ! You just can't have hot flushes, you are far too young ! I've had mine for six years now and it's getting worse...
