Challenge 33 - Sketch

Hello everyone, 
Welcome to challenge 33 at Cupcake Craft Challenges. This week is the last week that the first DT will be designing. The new team will begin next week. 

This week I have designed a sketch for you all to follow. 

I look forward to seeing what you make with it. 

Have you noticed the new look? I spent about 5 hours on it last Saturday and I have no idea how many times I have changed it. lol 

Let me know your opinion. Good or bad. I will also put a poll up once I've finished the blinkies.

Here are the fantastic DT creations

Challenge 32 - Monsters

Hello everyone, 

This week Sarah set the challenge. She chose monsters, cute ones not scary ones. This will be quite a challenge for some, but I look forward to seeing what you all come up with. 

Please have your creation linked by Monday. I will close Mr Linky when the new challenge is posted, so until then, your creations are not considered late. 

The design team have worked their magic for the second to last challenge.

Hello everyone, 
Thank you to everyone who applied for the Design Team. In total there were 57 applications. Way more than I ever expected. 
I know, I said I would just pick 4 or 5. But I spent hours sorting them all out and decided that I would have 15. I could just not let all that good talent go. Anyway there be a lot more creations to be inspired by. 
So could I please introduce you to the new design team.... 

Haven't I picked a talented bunch? If you were one of the 42 not picked, please do not be too disappointed, it was a tough decision and I hope that you will join us in future challenges and DT calls. 

The old design team will design for the last time on the 30th of March and the new team will start on the 6th of April.

Challenge 31 - Brown + 1

Hello everyone, 

This weeks challenge is to use any one of these three colour combos. 

1) Brown + Pink 
2) Brown + Blue 
3) Brown + Green

As long as you get your entry in before the nexts weeks challenge is posted, it is not late and will still be considered for the Top 5. 

Mr Linky is back this week. Sorry about it not being there last week I was away and by the time I got back there was also 20 or so entries. Just add your name and paste your URL. Its that simple. 

Also keep those DT applications coming, there is almost 50 now. And I have to chose just 10! 

I accidentally only sent the DT just the "use brown on your card" but, they seem to have chosen the colours above anyway....

Challenge 30 - Top 5

Thanks for the wonderful entries we had this week. Lauren asked me to choose this week's top 5, but I'm afraid I couldn't choose only 5. There were a lot of beautiful cards, so I went with Random Integer to pick 5 entries.

This is the result:

Random Integer Generator
Here are your random numbers:

30 67 28 70 36
Timestamp: 2009-03-15 23:59:51 UTC

I had left a message myself, so whaen adding the entries, I cut my message out.I also eliminated where there was two messages from the same person (erased one ofthem) So these are the names of those who won the top 5 :


Congrats. You may now add the Top 5 blinkie to your blog if you wish.
