Sugarbowl challenge!!

Papers- Raspberry Road freebie from a crafty mag
Evening peeps!!!
Well I have had a fabulous sunday. We woke up to icky rain but then had a break in it which was fab as we all got wellied up and plodded the Holly over to the recreation ground in our village to get a good play and run around in. Now, despite being a yellow lab and supposed water dog...Holly does not do rain...to the point where if she even see's it dripping down the patio door she runs back to her bed!!! so a good walk in the break from the rain was much adored by the fluffy princess today!!

Once we had done that(...and Mo had tested out his new sisal rope bought by my mum by tying me up to the garden gate.....) I wanted to get started on making a card for the Sugarbowl challenge this week. It is a yummy sketch and I really felt like having a good old stamp and ink stampy session!!! (...plus its my mum and dad's wedding anniversary this week and they have both forgotten so before they send me frantic texts on monday night to tell me they need a card I thought I would be ahead of the game!!...yeah I could tell them they have both forgotten but its more fun this way!! romfl!!!!!)

So, this is mums card from my dad! I inked up one of my fav gorjuss/gorgeous girls, Sitting. I know there are new ones but I still love the originals from Sugar Nellie at Funky Kits. I decided I wanted some nice soft edges so I stamped her in memento rich cocoa. I love how it comes out.
She then got a good old nestie treatment and tim holtz tea dye and antique linen distressing before getting coloured up with these pens below.....:)
Get me...all organised!!! :)


The papers were a delicious freebie from one of my crafty mags and they are Raspberry Road 'Summer Goodness'. They have a kinda glossy feel to them so they were a treat to play with!!! the swooshy swirls are a sizzix die that I got with my big shot and the little flower is..... of course, from Tim Holtz's tattered floral die :) and the little teeny butterfly's are my martha stewart punch.


So I think thats me for today!!! tonight I am just going to veg out a bit and catch up with my 'Castle's I have taped. I need to make mum's card for dad but I know what I am doing for it so it won't take me long and I have even been super creative and made up my own sentiment for it, go me!!!! might get it done and post it for you tomorrow!!


Thank you so much for popping in on me :) this new blogger set up has had me confuzled so I am quite impressed I even managed to post this !!!!!

  16. OMG Lou, this is one of the most stunning cards I've seen. Your coloring is amazing and the papers are spot on perfect with the image. Glad you got ahead of the parents, and weren't left hanging out to dry and trying to be creative at the last minute. Fantastic creation.
