Sugar Bowl Challenge ~ 46

The sketch for challenge 46 has been provided by the multi-talented Marlene and it's another fabulous sketch. The option, should you choose to follow it, is 'One for the Boys'.
Now I ALWAYS like to include the option.

So now you're thinking hmmmmm, it's a Christmas card, it's pink and sparkly, but is it 'One for the Boys'?
I can assure you it is! I've made this Christmas card for........my hairdresser Damian, and I can assure you that it's right up his street and he will love it! Maybe I'm pushing the boundaries here, but I do not like making men's/boys cards. I like pink and glitter and flowers!
This gorgeous image is from the Home Grown Country Cousins range and she's called Make a Wish, available to buy HERE. She's perfect not just for Christmas cards, I've got this little fairy earmarked for my nieces birthday too. DP's are Dream Street Wonderland, a Nellie Snellen punched flower, a few pearls and a charm. As always she's coloured with DI's.


Another fabulous prize is on offer for the lucky winner of this challenge, a set of Nestabilities dies and a pick 'n mix set of 6 Sugar Nellie stamps of the winners choosing.
All the details are available on the Sugar Bowl Blog, and please pop by the other sweeties blogs for some inspiration, and don't forget we have all the new Sweeties taking part now, I can't wait to see what they've all made!

Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
Love Elaine xx

  9. My favourite of this set - love the charm & your combining of red & pink - the soft blue just sets it off beautifully too. You're right - there are so many ways of interpreting the boy theme.
    Have a good weekend & I can see you've been burning the midnight oil.
    Much love

  34. Elaine, you've leapt over the boundary and set off running the other side with this interpretation. (I'm sat here having to re-type words I'm laughing so much). It's a beautiful card and I love the non-traditional Christmas look. :-) xx
