Celebrations...Cupcake challenge

Happy Happy Monday. I am Carole and I am so pleased to host this challenge. I've chosen the Celebrations or Doodlecharms cartridges because both are among my favorites. When I look at the choices on these cartridges, my eyes always seem to fall first on the cupcake. So...I have asked the designers to use this cut for their cards and projects. I am so proud to be part of this team and I know each week when the designers present their cards and projects, I am going to be filled with inspiration. Please join me in admiring their cards. And do take note that this is a blog hop post so please visit each designer and leave a comment. We all appreciate your visit.

Carole

In addition, this week we have a special give away. Everyday Cricut (formerly known as Holiday with the Cricut) has donated an incredible prize package for us to give away. They have given us a paper pack from SEI (Happy Day) AND a Sweethearts cart. Can you believe it?!?! All you need to do to enter this giveaway is to leave a comment, and if you haven't already, sign up to be a follower (the link is on the side bar). We will have a randomly drawn winner by Friday, March 5.







Don't forget to do the Blog Hop, too. The list of the participants are at the bottom of this post. As always, we love it when you share your work with us, so please don't forget to sign up using McKlinky. Thanks again for your support.
