Study in Purple - Spoonful of Sugar


A SPOONFUL OF SUGAR - SKETCH BY NIKKI

Spoonful of Sugar are back after the Christmas Break, and we have a fabulous sketch by our very own Nikki for you this week. There are also two fabulous Stamps for one lucky person donated by Helene the Owner of Alota Rubber Stamps. We also have some sad news the Fantastic and very talented Deb is leaving us, we will all miss her and her fabulous creations best of luck Deb its been great working with you sob! sob!

We also have a guest designer this week
Nina, if you don't know Ninas work you are in for a treat. So don't delay come and join us, and if you would like to see Nina's awesome card and also the creations by my fellow DT members just click Here



Can you believe it is already 12th Night, where does the time go, I am a bit late posting today as I always leave taking down the tree and decorations until 12th Night and although I started early this morning it has taken all this time, I really hate putting them all away.

Nikkis sketch this week is nice and simple but very effective, I have used my lovely Elizabeth Bell stamp again, cannot get enough of these fabulous stamps, she has been coloured with Copics. I have coloured the flowers (which were white) with the same copics, (thanks Rach for the hint, I am dropping big hints to the boys that I would love a copics Air Brush System for my birthday next month). The Dp is Daisy Bucket and hardware from Poppicrafts. The lovely Lilac and White ribbon was a present from the very generous Donalda, thanks hun.


Another close up view of the image.


Still decorating the insides and backs of my cards but keep forgetting to take pictures of the back. The papers are the scraps from the front, sentiment is by Penny Black and charm is from the lovely Rach.

Thanks for looking
Hugs
Jacqui xx

Chris said...

Absolutely stunning Jacqui! I love purple and your gorgeous colouring makes this lovely image pop right off the paper again. I also love how you decorated the inside too it really does made the card even more special. Glad I'm not alone in leaving my decorations up until 12th night. It seems so many want them down as soon as Christmas is over but I love them and hate taking them down the same as you! Hugs, Chris x

WOW Jacqui, what a stunning card, love it to bits. One of my favoutite colours ! Louise x

Sandra said...

Another stunning creation. Great idea to colour the flowers. We're another household that keeps the decs up until 12th night... always have...always will. It's such a shame when I hear of folks taking theirs down on boxing day! we always manage to forget one though, this year it was the 'santa stop here' sign in the garden.
Hugs
