Sugar Bowl Challenge - 71

Today sees a new challenge over at the Sugar Bowl. We have another fab sketch from the multi-talented and very sweet Sweetie Erika for you to follow, and the optional theme this time is 'Patchwork'.
I didn't do so well with the theme this time!


I guess I also need some photography lessons...for reasons I can't fathom she looks like she's been using fake orange tanning lotion on this photo!
I do so LOVE this little lady Pippi Longsocks. And as usual, she's been coloured with Distress inks and SU inkers.
This yummy paper is one of my recent purchases Maja Design Fika from MY Dutch shop Crea Duymelot. I love it so much that I had to go and buy some more..just to put away in my cupboard and stroke..not to cut!
(Janette, yes they do post to America...and Hawaii, Russia, Norway, Indonesia, Canada, Germany, Slovenia, and even to the UK and Holland hee hee! If you don't speak Dutch as well as I do *cough* then at the top right hand corner of the page click the EN button and ta-da English!)
What else did I use...a die cut flower and leaves, SU sentiment and punches, a couple of pearls and plenty of Glamour Dust on her wings...well, all fairies need some sparkle.



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. 

Please visit the Sugar Bowl blog to see all the awesome cards from the other sweeties.

Thanks for looking today.
Love Elaine xxx

  8. Love the colours Elaine, especially with the kraft. I just love that frog - methinks she will probably jump into a not too distant basket egged on by froggy. St R didn't put his gloves on removing gripper rods...... enter Nurse PEP with TCP......... Oh for the days of Homer (Ancient Greek one!!!)......... oops - it's gone too quiet, better go find out what's happened NOW........

  12. Awesome card Elaine; your coloring is amazing; like always I nearly drool:0) I don't think the skin looks bad; especially with that super cute image! I just love how she is girly with that puffy skirt but not too girly as she is wearing it with her favorite sneakers; oh that super cool froggie is full of attitude! Oh and I just love those papers; gotta go back and look for that EN button.

    Big Hugs;

  34. Hi Elaine, I agree with the rest that your cute little gal just has a bit of a suntan but she is wonderfully colored as per your usual. Love that cute litte frog & her big ole shoes. Those papers are gorgeous. If they had them at my local shop I'd be picking up a couple of packs just to stroke too. Love the hearts !!!
