Anything goes over at the Cupcake Craftroom January monthly challenge!

There's a new challenge over at the Cupcake Craftroom monthly challenge!  This month we have a lovely easy peasy one for you so no excuses to not join in!

Anything goes!


I thought I'd go for a Spring card even though we aren't even halfway through our Winter yet!



I wanted to use the Lemon papers from the Fresh Polkas Paper Collection (it's only £1.50 and comes in 16 different colours) and the black and white pinstripe paper from the Little Black Box Paper Collection (only £2.50 for a lovely mix for fresh and vintage papers).

Of course, yellow and black has to mean bees!  And whenever I see this digi, it puts a BIG smile on my face!  It's a cutie called Honey Bee by Torico and you can get him here in her BirdieBrown Etsy shop

You can see more gorgeous DT inspiration on the blog here!  Right, I'm off to enjoy the very first rubbish windy day of 2012!


I am entering my card into the following challenges:

Hi Mary J., love that spring card, and it is still such a long time away; Seems like we didn't have any summer last year so that's probably why it seems to take such a long time. Love that bee image too! Hugs Frea
