Where does the time go to? I turn my back and suddenly it's my favourite day again... Sugar Bowl day.
As always, we have a sketch to follow, this time from Sweetie Maria with an optional them of "One for the Boys".
Where do I start? I have but 3 simple rules for crafting.
(I do not wish to offend anyone here, this is simply my personal opinion)
1) No grunge. I hate grunge in all forms.
2) No distressing the edges of papers with those scraper things...why buy pretty papers just to ruin them?
3) Finally...No BOYS! I hate making boy cards!
So I groaned, then I re-read the email a dozen times just in case the theme might magically change the more times I opened the email, I moaned and whined, and then I pulled up my big knickers and got stuck in.
I have to admit, I own very few boy images since I don't use them and I was struggling to find anything that would be suitable until the lovely Pat suggested a baby stamp...aha...I'm sure I have one somewhere!
The image is Vintage Baby and he's coloured with a mix of DI re-inkers and markers. The papers are a really old set by Cloud 9. The sentiment was cut out with a Whimsy die, the star was cut with a Spellbinder die, a little gingham button tied with cord and a few pearls.
It's a little on the plain side (even for me!) but it did turn out much better than I expected.
I did a bit of sketch flipping just because I liked it better this way around :)
As always, there is a fantastic prize for one lucky winner chosen at random, their choice of any 4 Sugar Nellie stamps, rising to 6 stamps if we reach 100+ entries.
Now if I can do it and break out a boy stamp then I'm darn sure anyone can do it! So I hope you'll rise to the challenge and show us your fantastic boy cards :)
Please pop over to the Sugar Bowl to see all the other Sweeties fabulous cards.
Next...have you seen this?
The DT call for Sugar Nellie. There's still a few days left to get your entry in!
Thanks for looking
