Cupcake 153... How Old?

Morning All! I cannot believe it's August already. Not only does it bring us a little closer to the 'C' word, but it also means it's Cupcake's Birthday soon! And we have lots of presents to share with you. :)

This week, there are two lovely new faces amongst The Cupcakes. Our Guest Cupcake is
Cazza and our newest Cupcake Flavour, Maarit, joins us too. To welcome Maarit to the team, we have a little extra Candy for you:

All you need to do for a chance to win this versatile stamp set from the lovely girls at Rainbow Studios is hop on over to Maarit's Blog and say Hello. We'll randomly draw a winner from all the comments on todays post on Saturday.

Thank you to everyone that took the time to play with Sari's Shabby Challenge last week. There was so much you could have done with this theme and it was fantastic to see all your shabby, sparkly creations.

Well time for another Cupcake and this week, Shelly has chosen the Challenge:

*** How Old? ***

We'd like to see your birthday creations, which must include a number on it.

You have until 8pm GMT on Sunday 7 August to place your entry for this challenge. Have fun!

The best work you done in your first card with only the black and white combination. Those curves of flowers and pot is awesome work.

Yesterday, I visited so many shops for just card ideas and found that black and white cards are one of the best attraction for current days. I added your blog post in unique card list.
