“Let Them Eat Cake” She Cried (Published!)

A short post to share with you today.
Last year when The Stampers’ Sampler announced their cupcake template challenge I had recently acquired Oxford Impressions’ Court of Versailles stamp set.  It is rare for me to submit to their template challenges but  I had to give this a shot because the stamps were so perfect for this template and so you can imagine I was over the moon to see my Marie cupcake published in the Feb/March issue.I only have this one photograph as I was pushed for time to post this in time for the deadline.
I believe there have been Gremlins at work with my Blog either with commenting or e-mail notification of new posts not being received. I am sorry but this appears to be beyond my control.
I am linking this to Pink Saturday. This week Beverly invites not only pink entries but Springtime colours:- blue, green, yellow, etc.
All of your visits and comments are much appreciated.
