The Sugar Bowl Challenge

Evening folks, this is just a fleeting visit today from me folks as I've just finished a card using the fabby sketch over at The Sugar Bowl and if I'm quick and mr. blogger plays nicely I think I may just slide my card in by the skin of my teeth!!!!

This one was made using the so so gorgeous stamp 'Picking Apples' and it was a dream to colour. I've made this card for my auntie as its her birthday in July and for once I'm ahead of myself and there will be no last minute rush to get one made. I've also decorated a candle with the same image and once I've completed the box for it to go in I'll show it on here.

Well better dash as its now 11.45 p.m. and the challenge ends at 12 midnight so gotta go and enter my card over at The Sugar Bowl.

By for now folks, apologies again for not visiting you all recently, but I hope to get round real soon. Wherever you are I hope you have a good rest of the week and find time to do something crafty.

Take care.

Who said pink was for girls!!!

Hi folks happy Monday to you all! Its a quieter day here as my son has gone back to school but I still have my little girl at home until Wednesday.

Anyways about a week ago I was lucky enough to win a spot prize from Sugar Nellie and I received this cute little fella in the post...Isn't he adorable and such a dream to colour. Anway as soon as I received him I knew I was going to make by youngest brother's birthday card with him and then I saw the fab sketch over at The Sugar Bowl with the added theme of black, white and pink for inspiration. Well I then got thinking that my brother actually likes a little bit of pink in fact his favourite shirt is pink so I thought I could squeeze a little into the card just for an accent. I didn't have any matching buttons so I vaguely remember seeing somewhere about making your own (sorry can't remember where but if I do I will put the link in). All I did was to cut out with my 'bug' some circles in matching colours and then I punched two holes like a button and glazed them and when dry put the layers together. I must admit I quite like them and at least they match. The sentiment was made using peel offs which I happen to have loads of as it was one of the first things I bought when I first started crafting but they don't get used much now!
Papers - DCWV black/white stack
Card stock - Bazzill/papermania
Stamp - Sporty manga from Funky Kits
Medium - copics
Lastly I'm going to enter my card into a couple of challenges:
The Sugar Bowl - Fab sketch and colour theme
Create 4 Fun - Colour theme (black/white + 1 other)
Well folks thats all from me, hope you're all okay and I'll catch up with ya soon.
Take care.
