Challenge 113... Boys and Their Toys

Morning all and welcome to our new followers, I see you creeping in there! I’m not liking these colder, damper, darker mornings. It makes me want to pull the duvet up under my chin and snuggle down. Unless of course, it’s a Monday morning, when I leap out of the bed as it’s time for another Cupcake! ;)

Wow, you all loved Kathrin’s Scary Creatures Challenge and kept us very busy last week. Thank you so much for taking the time to join in. We certainly love coming to see you all, so please keep playing.

Before we get onto our new challenge, don’t forget, you can never have too many Cupcakes! We’ve decided that Cupcake Madness is a good thing, so each month; we’ll be giving you the chance to win not just weekly prizes, but a monthly prize too. All you need to do, is enter at least two different Cupcake challenges within a calendar month!

This week, Minkie Minx has set our theme:

***Boys and Their Toys ***

You have until Sunday 24 October… 8pm GMT to place your entry for this challenge.

All you need to do to be in with a chance of getting your mitts on some gorgeous LOTV stamps is to enter at least two different Cupcake Challenges throughout October. There are only two more weeks left in October, (scary huh?!) so if you’ve not joined in already, you’ll need to get a move on!
