Cupcake 162... Black and White Christmas

Morning Muffins. Yep, it's Monday morning again, which means it's time for another Cupcake... Wahooooo!

As always, thanks so much for playing with us last week. There are A LOT of cutesome bear inspired images out there and we loved seeing all your gorgeous creations using them. Who said going down to the woods had to involve getting covered in mud?! ;) I've been a little bit naughty, I couldn't choose just five Cuties...

We have a lovely new face joining The Cupcakes this week. Keeley is our Guest for October and makes the most beautiful, inspiring projects. I just know you're going to enjoy seeing her work as much as we are.

I'm sure you'll remember we recently ran a Choose The Challenge Competition. Well this week, the lucky winner, Sandra has chosen:

*** Black and White Christmas ***
