Sugar Bowl Challenge ~ 75

It seems like ages since I actually made anything...probably because it IS ages since I made anything :)
Between the frantic rushing around in the run up to Christmas and a cracked rib which seriously hampered my card making, since I couldn't find a comfortable position to colour in, I have very much missed my time spent playing with sweet rubber and pretty papers.

So I am delighted to be back with a card for the Sugar Bowl challenge. As always there is a sketch to follow, this time from the lovely Erika, and a nice 'n' easy optional theme of 'Birthdays'.

I have used another of my favourite stamps...


Oh yes..Pippi has come out to play again. Just in case there is anyone left in blogland that doesn't know this fact, I luvs Pippi...oh yes I do!
She's been coloured with a mix of DI's and SU inkers. The gorgeous papers are from my lovely friends at Crea Duymelot and you can find them HERE. A DooHickey swirl and a teeny flower, a few pearls and a sentiment from PTI.


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.
As always, the Sweeties have created a gorgeous array of cards to give you some inspiration which you can
see on the Sugar Bowl blog, along with the rules of entry.

Thanks for looking.

  10. Hi Elaine
    what a delectable card, the image is sooooooo sweet (can see why you love it) also love those paper.s.
    I would love to buy the paper's, BUT have strict instruction's (from HIM who must be obeyed), to not buy anything craft related, UNTIL we (that's the royal we of course) have moved all the present craft stuff in to it's new home (which is not even finished yet). He said he doesn't know WHY I would want to buy any more craft stuff anyway, as I have enough to open my own craft shop, oh how little they know these non-crafter hubby's/partner's lol. I'm off to Ikea (and HE is definitely not coming with me) to SPEND SPEND SPEND on kitting my new craft space out (hope I can find some strong kind shop assistants to help me load the car up lol..
    Glad to hear that you are feeling better, hope that cracked rib is not too painful.
    BIGGEST of HUGS
