Welcome to City Crafter Challenge Blog, we hope to bring you exciting inspiration on a weekly base. 

Here's our hostess Kirsty to kick off our very FIRST challenge!

Kirsty: I live in New York City for 8 years, there are tons of things I love about the city, the four seasons in central park, the Manhattan skyline, broadway shows, concert halls, the constance changes in every corner, the city is just so vibrant. There are many restaurants I would miss after my move to Las Vegas, one of them is Crumbs Cupcakes. Oops, I am suppose to talk about our challenge, "tink!!!!" Let's start off our challenge with CUPCAKE! 

CCCB week # 1 - Cupcake

For this week's challenge you will create a card or project based on our theme - CUPCAKE.
You could use pattern paper, stamps, embellishment etc, as long as you have CUPCAKE in your creation.

Guest Designer
I am thrilled to introduce this week Guest Designer that will play along with us. 
Let's meet our very first GD Mona Pendleton.
Mona's work is beautiful and I love her color sense and embellishment choices on every piece of artwork she created. You can see more of Mona's fantastic artwork at her blog Cupcakes Creations and check out all the inspiration and creativity she has to offer.
Thank you once again Mona, for taking time out of your busy schedule to be our Guest Designer.
Here's Mona's lovely cupcake card, enjoy!
