Make It Monday #83 with Cupcake Cards & Craft

Hi, nice to see you here.
Welcome to my new followers this week.

I started off the year well, sticking to my new year's resolution to post more regularly on my blog, but I seem to have slipped recently so I will have to work on that, lol.

I'm here today to tell you all about the Make It Monday linky party starting today, but before I do I would just like to remind you about the Giveaway coming soon.

The new Pink Paper Paradise facebook page has been set up to feature entries from the weekly Make It Monday linky party and to also give you a little sneak peek in to what I am creating each week. In the future there will be promotions and reviews as well as giveaways.

The first giveaway is about to start. We have almost reached the magical "100 Likes" we need to kick it off.

Details will be posted here on my blog once the target 100 Likes has been reached so stay tuned!!
Non Facebook users need not worry as the giveaway will be open to everyone.

Ok, now down to business, lol

Thank you to everyone (and there were a lot of you!) who linked up last week. The diversity of entries is just outstanding.

We get loads of cards entered, a few altered items and some off the page projects too.
I would love to see more scrapbook pages entered!

I have created a boy's card this week

Stamp set is called "Dinoroar" from Stampin' Up!

Try as I might, I just couldn't photograph this card well, the colours have come out all wrong. The photo below probably shows the colours most true.

Image is coloured with Copics.

Ok, now you've seen what I've been working on this week. Let's see what you've been up to!! 

Come on over to Make It Monday and share you latest creation. Or if you haven't found time to get crafty this week but you'd still like to play along how about reviving an old post. No need to create a whole new post just link back to the old one and blow the dust off that creation you were so proud of back then.  Lots of new faces joining us each week that will be seeing it for the first time.

This week's Make It Monday linky party is now open!!

This week we are being sponsored by the lovely Mandy of Cupcake Cards and Craft who creates gorgeous digi paper collections and kits!  Mandy is offering the lucky random winner 3 downloadable paper collections!

To be in with a chance to win this fabulous prize all you need to do is leave a comment on an entry in this week's linky party. Be sure to mention you saw them on MIM. The more entries you comment on the more chances you have of winning.  

The wonderful Design Team ladies have created some positively gorgeous card to get your mojo in gear this week. Please head over toMIM and check them out. Don't forget to visit their blogs to see who they have featured as their favourite entry this week.

For me the one entry that stood out the most was this cute little post it note holder by

What a terrific little gift idea! Debora's colouring is just fantastic too.
