I do, I do, I do, I do, I do, oh ooooh oooooooh!

Morning Fluffers!

If you're an Abba fan, you'll be singing that all day now. And yes, I am old enough to know about Abba! ;) (Tell anyone and I'll throw a cake at you.) If you're not an Abba fan, you'll just be thinking I've given yet another post a crazeeeeee title! Both true I'm afraid Folks. And on that bombshell, I think I will tell you about the first Challenge of the year over at Cupcake!

If you'd like a chance to win from stash from Sew Sweet or Squiggle Stamps, then you're gonna need to play along with Liza's fabby Something New Challenge. It can be an occasion, or, you can show us some of your new stash. If you do, be sure to make us green around the edges by telling us all about it in your post. ;)

My Dear Sweet Brother is tying the knot with my Really Very Nearly Sister-in-Law this year, so weddings are on my mind (yes, ok, and choklit!) and it seemed natural to go with that.

However, this is not their wedding card. Because. Firstly, they sometimes spy on me here (waving madly). And. Dear Sweet Brother is not brunette, and Really Very Nearly Sister-in-law is not blonde! DOH! Where did my brain go? I'm sure I had it before I got pregnant...

I'll be back in a few hours with a little something Pollycraft to show you. See you then. In the meantime, why not pop pver to Cupcake and see the lush creations from the rest of The Cupcakes?
