You may have noticed, in my blog side bar, a little badge linking to the "We Stamp For Lara" fundraising event that's running throughout November.  Please, if you can, support Madonna Dunn (a fellow Stampin' Up! demonstrator) in her efforts to raise much-needed funds to help make her little daughter's life a bit easier.  There are heaps of great papercrafting tutorials on offer, along with weekly challenges and giveaways.  Please visit Madonna's blog for details.  If you're able to make a donation, or pay the small $25 fee for an entire month of papercrafting fun, please consider paying directly into the nominated bank account, rather than Paypal.  We want to make sure that the funds go exactly where they're intended!!

This week's challenge, at We Stamp For Lara, is to make a cupcake card.  I was thrilled to have some time in my craft room today, to make cards for a few challenges I've been wanting to participate in.  Thanks to my friend Kerry, I have lots of gorgeous little die-cut cupcakes, that I created with her Sizzix die on a girls' weekend away a few months back.  The die, and the paper I used, is not from Stampin' Up!, but everything else on my card is.

Stamps: Fast Flowers stampin' around wheel, Sincere Salutations
Card: Crumb Cake, Whisper White, Blushing Bride
Ink: Blushing Bride, Old Olive and Crumb Cake stampin' pads
Other: Wide Oval punch, Old Olive brad, Scallop Trim border punch, Perfect Polka Dots embossing folder, Scor-Pal, Old Olive 1/4" grosgrain ribbon, Blushing Bride poly-stitched ribbon, mat pack and paper-piercing tool, sponge dauber

    I see you live in a beautiful part of Australia, Mt Evelyn is just gorgeous.
    I love this card you have created, it is so soft and pretty. Those colours look so lovely together, and your cupcake is just scrumptious. I love the little extras too, the ribbon and punched border. Just beautiful.
