Candy is always Sweet at the Sugar Bowl

I'm so sorry I am late with my card for The Sugar Bowl. I did realise it was Thursday!!!!!!!

It is a fabulous Sketch by the ever so Lovely Marlene, and I was really pleased with its simplicity. I used The Sweet as Candy image from Sugar Nellie, Available over at Funky Kits

Here is my interpretation!

Most of the Products, actually all the product (except the image) are Stampin' Up.

Simply Sassy: Artistic Goddess

I so love the new Simply Sassy Images from Sugar Nellie, I think Karen really has a talent for spotting a winner, and these definitely are!! They are quirky and I love the eyes!
I created a different card, for me, I have seen them in all shapes and sizes and really love them, They are so quick and easy to make and use up scraps really easily ( Looks like this is the style I'll be going for for christmas. The buttons you can see are from Stampin' Up.

I used the lovely Rich Rassleberry Ribbon from Stampin' Up and the Papers are from Bo Bunny.

I coloured the image with my much loved Promarkers, and highlighted with a white gel pen.

Get to Funky Kits and treat yourselves they are gorgeous

Take care and have a lovely day

The Sugar Bowl - Challenge 47

Its that time again everyone, The Sugar Bowl Challenge, No. 47
And its a sketch by the lovely Maria Therese

The prize is a winter themed one...Snowflake nestie and 6 stamp selection of 'winter' Sugar Nellie stamps!

I decided to use on of the new Simply Sassy Stamps called PILLOW TALK. I actually prefer her original name (P***** Off Princess) Cos that describes how I am feeling at the moment!!!!!

Anyway I decided to flip and mirror the sketch (hope that makes sense) so that it would look right with the things I wanted to use.

I was actually feeling creative so I made a gift box to match.

I used MME Papers with Old Olive Cardstock from Stampin' Up along with various ribbons.

I also used some lush felt flowers, which are now retired!!!

Hope you like. Make sure you pop over to The Sugar Bowl and have a peek at all the other fabulous inspiration.

I am off to the NEC this weekend so I might see some of you, I'm trying to get enthusiastic about it, but work is really getting me down at the moment!

Take care all and enjoy your day.

Anyone for Anya!

Here we are late again. I really I'm so, so, late with things at the moment.

This weeks Challenge is a Sketch and I love it, so simple but with a fabulous result.

Here I have used a CC Design Imaage, from All That Scraps - Sugarplum Cookie Emma

She is so adorable. The sentiment is also from CC Designs.
I also used some delicious paper from Dies to Die for. The green paper is from Bo Bunny Papers and I have to say I think I will be buying more! Its called Petal Pushers. I teamed this up with some co-ordinating papers from Stampin Up. The are fab!
These flowers were from my stash - the turquoise flower was white, but I coloured it using Stampin' Up's Tempting Turquoise. and the added some papermania flowers. The ribbon is also from Stampin' Up, its Melon Mamba Polka Dots - but sorry is no longer available.
Here is my completed set. the Box is a sizzix die, covered to co-ordinate with the card.

Hope you like.
I'll be back with some more bits and pieces soon.
Take care and thanks for popping by.

Snowflakes and Butterflies

Here is my second card using the Now Released Images from All That Scraps. Its really fun being part of a Design team because you get to try things you probably wouldn't try normally. This image is so sweet and these papers are Lush, no surprise then that that is their name!

I used this beautiful sentiment from Amy R's Merry & Bright Sentiments, I loved it as soon as I saw it and knew exactly that this was what I was going to do. I used Martha Stewart Punches for the snowflakes and butterflies, then finished them off with a few gems.

Here is the completed card - I have used papers from Dies to Die for again, and they are from My Mind's Eye - The Lush Blue Collection.
