Make It Monday #50 with Cupcake Cards and Crafts

Hi there, happy Monday to you!

Did you have a good weekend? Mine was way too short but so much fun. I spent some time outside in our fabulous warm winter weather flying a kite with one of my boys. It was his 7th birthday on Saturday and we spent the day doing his favourite activities. Sometimes it is really nice to spend time being a kid again (note to self to do it more often).

The end of the weekend signals the beginning of a whole new Make It Monday linky party and I always look forward to the feast of creativity that the week will bring.

Congratulations to the winners from last week's linky party.

For my card this week I have used the beautiful papers so generously supplied by our sponsor this week.

This week we are sponsored by the lovely Mandy over at

Mandy is so kindly offering the new release Soft Whispers paper collection. Each set of these gorgeous papers come in 8 soft dreamy colours!

To be in with a chance of winning this fab prize all you have to do is leave a little blog love for an entrant on this week's Make It Monday linky party. Be sure to mention you saw them on MIM.The more entries you comment on the more chances you have of winning.
Let's see who I picked this week as my favourite from last week's entries...
It is always difficult to choose, but with 232 entries last week it was near on impossible this time,lol.

But in the end I chose........

This pretty card by Gloria over at Crafter GM

Gloria has very cleverly created her background paper using bubble wrap.

Please hop on over to say hi to Gloria and be sure to let her know you found her through Make It Monday.

Thank you for stopping by today.

I look forward to seeing what you share over at Make It Monday this week.

Michelle :o)

The frame behind her is lovely as is that flower .
I nearly chose Gloria's card too because I was inspired by her background tip .
