Nikkis Sketch - A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge

There is a Great sketch from the fabulous Nikki on A Spoonful of Sugar Challenge this week. Thanks to everyone who joined in last week I really enjoyed visiting your blogs and seeing your great creations. This week there is some great Candy for one lucky person picked at random, this has bee donated by Bryony at Silly Monkey Crafts. They also have a new DT member Sonja, so don't forget if you need inspiration there are some great cards from the DT on the blog.

This wonderful Father Christmas must be one of my favourite Christmas stamps he is called Jolly Santa and is by Stamps Happen. I have coloured the image with Distress Inks and H20's with lots of glamour dust on his beard and fur, I stamped a lovely snowflake stamp from WOJ with Olive Stazon around the Image. The Dp is BG and Ribbon from Raspberry Ribbons, the Bell and Star Beads are from stash. Sentiment is by Penny Black.

I would like to thank everyone who left such kind messages on the birth of dear Charlie.
