Sugar Bowl Challenge ~ 58

Faster than the speed of light..that's how my time is whizzing on by. I'm beginning to wonder if I live in a different time dimension from anyone else? But there's always a silver lining to my clouds, the faster the weeks go and the quicker the next Sugar Bowl challenge comes around which is always fun, fun, fun!
The sketch for this challenge has been provided by the sweetest Sweetie Marlene and this is a gorgeous sketch, so much so that I actually made my Sugar Bowl card and then straight after I made another card with the same sketch. The option, if you choose to follow it, is buttons. Nice 'n' easy huh? And yes I followed it - just.



I had to ink up this gorgeous lady first, aawww ain't she so sweet? And she looks so in love to me, so I made this card for my hubby on our wedding anniversary last week. The image is a new Sassy stamp from set 6 called OH La La and you can buy her HERE. She's been coloured with DI's and Nick Bantock inks, the papers are Prima Reflections, a Doo Hickey swirl, a Nellie Snellen flower and 'A' button...not buttons.


I rotated the sketch just so I could use this image.
So..onto the prize. One lucky winner picked by random will receive:


A set of Spellbinders Fancy Tags 2 dies...I likey these a lot, they are going on MY wishlist, and...



a set of Hero Arts 'Find Joy' stamp set, these have such beautiful sentiments.


For all the details on how to enter please pop on over to the Sugar Bowl and you will also find a stunning array of cards from the other sweeties to give you some inspiration.
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
Love Elaine xxx

    I just adore this card Elaine. Not a big fan of all the Sassy Girls, but this one and a couple of the others I have seen are gorgeous. The sketch is lovely too so might have a go at that, If I too can find some time in the Twilight Zone! Debbiexx
