Cupcake 199... Bright as a Button

Good morning my fluffy little chicklettes. It's Monday, so we absolutely must have a Cupcake!

So. Birds. Don't you just love them? Well, you certainly did last week, there were soooo many fab-u-lous creations. We loved seeing them all, thanks for taking the time to share your work.

The beginning of the month sees new Guest Cupcakes at The Factory. We are joined by Dawn, Mrs A (wait till you see what she made this week, and I mean made.) and Sandra. I don't think you'll be disappointed. A big Cupcakey hello laydees.

But let's get on... this week, our gorgeous Louise has chosen:

... Bright as a Button ...

What's it all about? Good question. Bright colours and at least one button are an absolute must.

You have until 8pm, GMT on Sunday 08 July to place your entry for this Challenge. Have fun!


Mr Random has chosen a Winner from our last sponsored Challenge and we've chosen our Cupcake Cuties too.

So, here goes:

This week, we are lucky to be joinedby not one, but two generous sponsors...

digi doodle shop

We're really pleased Digi Doodle Shop are joining us again.
Here's what Judy and Joy have to say:

Digi Doodle Shop is the results of a mother and daughter's love for the arts and crafts. It was started a little over three years ago, with little more than 100 stamps, and has since grown to almost 500 stamps. Joy, (the mother of this team) designs realistic images, while Judy, (aka daughter) loves the fun side of life, and creates images with a cartoon flair. Having these two complementing styles have enabled Digi Doodle Shop to offer a wide variety of stamps.

It's a real honour and pleasure to sponsor this Challenge, and we look forward to seeing all the amazing creations. We thank the Design Team for all their incredible creations, and wish all the participants the very best of luck.

Thank you so much for having us, and again, the very best of luck to you all.

Digi Doodle Shop are kindly offering one lucky winner, chosen at random, a $10 Gift Certificate to spend in store.


We'd also like to welcome back our regular monthly sponsor, Simon Says Stamp. We're delighted that Simon Says Stamp continue to sponsor Cupcake. There's an incredible selection of crafting goodies in their on-line store and they stock lots of scrummy goodies that can't be purchased here in the UK.

Simon Says Stamp are generously offering one winner, chosen at random, a $20 Gift Certificate to spend in store.


The Cupcakes have been busy creating to help get you in the mood! Please pop over to their personal Blogs if you'd like more deets about their work, or if you just fancy leaving a little hug... ;)

Mrs A Made everything on this chess board!
