Cupcake 203... The Great Outdoors

Hello :)

If you're in the UK, you'll be a little amazed by all that blue and yellow stuff happening in the sky right now! I don't want to tempt fate and say too much so... time for a Cupcake.

Thanks so much for joining our Ocean Challenge last week. We loved seeing all your gorgeous sea themed makes and I know Maarit had a hard time choosing the Cuties.

I can hardly believe we are approaching the end of July already, but we are, so, we must say farewell to our current Guest Cupcakes. Dawn, Mrs A and Sandra, you've made gorgeous creations for us and it's been a joy to work with you all. Thank you. We hope you'll have time to play with us from time to time.

This week, we have a nice, easy Challenge for you:

... The Great Outdoors ...

We're thinking girls on swings, boys on bikes, golf, gardening, things you'd do outdoors. Simples, right?

You have until 8pm, GMT on Sunday 05 August to place your entry for this Challenge. Have fun!


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

So, here goes:
