Cupcake 125... Dum, Dum, De, Dum!

Aloha Cupcake Lovers! How are the New Years Resolutions going? Have you kicked them to the curb yet or did you pick the best resolution of all? My New Years Resolution was to have no New Years Resolutions. Well, apart from not eating so much choklit. Or purchasing naughty little packages of stash. Or stop 'accidentally' locking Very Understanding Hubby out... Ahem!

Goodness gracious me! You certainly kept us on or toes last week with all your fabulous entries in our Something New Challenge. There was barely time for a cuppa! Thank you so much for taking the time to play along. It was an amazing turn out. :)

To coincide with the launch of her rather fantastic Wedding Stationery business;

Stationery by Me

Liza has chosen:

***Weddings ***

Now I know we’re not really going to sell Wedding Invitations to crafters, but it would be really great if we could give Liza some exposure...

Stationery by Me specialises in beautiful, handmade wedding stationery for your special day.

Each of my collections feature save the date cards, invitations, all of your "on the day" stationery, favours, guest books and thank you cards, and they are all beautifully coordinated and finished to the highest standard.

All of my designs are made with high quality products and they are all individually handmade and are available in a wide range of colours.

I currently have an offer of 20% off all orders placed before the 31st January 2011, so if you or someone you know is getting married, please pop over to
Stationery by Me and take a look at my designs. x

Right, back to the challenge in hand! Put that wedding hat back in it's box, you need to get crafting because we’d love to see your Wedding creations.

You have until Sunday 23 January … 8pm GMT to place your entry for this challenge. Have fun!
