Cupcake 122... Thank You!

Morning Cupcake Lovers! Welcome to our last challenge this year! This is a two week challenge, as we thought you might need some time to play with all the naughty stash you’ve bought yourselves for Christmas! Oh. Is that just me?! ;) We will be back, raring to go on 03 January 2011.

Before I get onto the new challenge, get your party frocks and cocktails out folks, as I would like to say a few words! Thank you so much to everyone who takes the time to join in with our challenges, we hope you have as much fun as we do. We really enjoy sharing your wonderful talent. Thanks also, to each and every one of our generous sponsors, your fabulous prizes are very much appreciated. And, of course, thanks to The Cupcakes. You are the icing on my, erm, Cupcake! I’d like to give Delphine a special mention; it has been an absolute joy to have you Guest Designing for us this month. Oh and thanks to everyone that ever… what? Enough?! Ok! Mwah, Mwah Darlings!

Have a totally scrummylicious Christmas and New Year from everyone at Cupcake!

Now, I really must tell you about Victoria’s challenge, or you’ll start pelting me with tomatoes!

***Thank You! ***

We figured you might be fed up of making Christmas projects by now, unless you’re me and still haven’t started (gulp) yet! If not, you’ll be needing some Thank You stash after you’ve finished Christmas, so we’re kind of helping you out here!

You have until Sunday 02 January 2011 (!)… 8pm GMT to place your entry for this challenge.
