Today is my favourite day of the fortnight, yes it's time for a new Sugar Bowl challenge. For this challenge the sketch has been done by the Sweetie Kiki and as always it's a fabby one. The theme, should you choose to follow it, is a nice and easy one of 'lace'.
Nice and easy for some folks huh! But not me :( I love lace but it's one of those things that I buy and stash away never to be used. I just can't bear to cut into it.
So I think I deserve a gold star for the addition of lace onto this card!
(I got so many lovely gifts for my birthday last month that it will probably take me the rest of the year to show you everything, so please forgive me if it takes a little while, I do love and appreciate everything I got.)
This little sweetheart is of course one of the new Sherbet Pips, and she's called Cherry Pip and was a gift off the lovely Sweetie Erika along with lots of other rubber - thank you very much Sweetie.
She's been coloured with the usual DI's and Nick Bantock inks. The gorgeous papers are First Edition Up Up Away, a lovely gift off my buddy Fiona, thank you Fi, these colours are right up my street.
The heart circle is a nestie die and a gift off my very sweet friend Patty in America, thank you - I love this die, and I want to wish a very Happy Birthday to Patty (it's a special Birthday too!) for Saturday, I hope you have a fabulous day and get lots of lovely presents xxx
The sentiment is from Whimsy, a couple of punched flowers, a few pearls and a little strip of lace.
Phew...that's a lot of stuff on one of my usually minimalistic cards.
ETA: Thank you Marie for pointing out that I'd put here the sketch for challenge 63 and not the correct one for 64, the sketch above is now the right one, my sincere apologies, some days I'm as thick as two short planks!
The prize for one lucky winner is a choice of any 4 Sugar Nellie stamps, but if there are 100+ entries then the prize will increase to any 6 Sugar Nellie stamps.
The Sugar Bowl Sweeties are taking a little Summer holiday break, so this challenge will run for four weeks instead of the usual two, so there's plenty of time to get a card made!For all the details on how to enter please visit the Sugar Bowl blog, where you will also find lots of lovely cards for inspiration from the other sweeties.
This is the 3rd card in a row without a Sassy image!!! I think my Sassy girls will be packaging their bags and leaving home soon in search of some inky love...I shall rectify this little 'issue' very soon.
Thanks for looking and for any comments you may leave.
Love Elaine xxx
