Better with Cupcakes

Hello there ,welcome to my room .Thank you so much for calling in . Hope you had just the best weekend . Thank you too for all the comments I've  had since last Monday .
The weather here has been down right ordinary , cold , wet and windy . That being so , there has been no outings to speak of and really,  we have been pretty quiet . Watching movies ,sports and car racing on TV. Regular couch potatoes !
Loved browsing through some of the entries on Make it Monday though.
And now Michelle has opened the new Linky Party # 104 Hope that you join in .
    If you are interested , you might like to visit the facebook page ,Michelle may have featured you too .
Check out Michelle's Pink Paper Paradise Facebook Page.
Random entries from the weekly linky parties will be featured regularly and you can also view Michelle's cards that are available for sale. Free postage is offered Australia wide.
My card to share 
The image and sentiment are from " my little friend " There She Goes Clear Stamps .
I enjoyed using these papers and layering the two smaller pieces as frames for little gnome . Wonderful things computers. I wonder if this would count as one layer in a challenge?
and the inside
Here I have used digi papers from our wonderful sponsor this week .

Mandy is generously offering our winner a digi paper collection of their choice.

Remember, to be in the running to win the prize from our sponsor this week just leave a comment for another entry. Be sure to mention you saw them on Make It Monday. The more entries you comment on the more chances you have of winning!

The lovely ladies of the design team have created some gorgeous card to get you all inspired.

Please be sure to swing by their blogs to say hi and to see who they have chosen as their favourite entry from last week.

This one is my pick .Now don't you dare think that this was easy pickings , cause it weren't ! I cannot believe that there are so many talented papercrafters out in blogland .

Was that a country accent you used there Shirley-Anne? "Now don't you dare think that this was easy pickings , cause it weren't" just did that so I could understand it, didn't you? ;) My mom used to collect gnomes and we had the best time displaying them around the house and your card brought back wonderful memories. I love it and your POTW..well, gorgeous comes to mind. Wonder what the sharpener looks like? Those are HUGE pencils. :)
Hugs to you and have a great week too!
