A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge


I have got my days all muddled thats what happens when you only have 1 brain cell :( and very nearly didn’t post this card thinking it was Monday today,  thank goodness I realised in time that it is time for A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge we have an awesome sketch for you this week by our own talented Paola.


Lots of pictures with this one.  I have used one of last years Tilda images and coloured her with Copics and Prismas as usual , The paper is from Magnolia as is the sentiment.

Copics Used:

Flesh: E21, E00, E000, E0000

Hair: E49, E39, E17, E13, E11

Dress: BG10, BG11

Flowers: RV000, R81, R83

Leaves YG91

and lots and lots of  Glamour dust has been added.


OMG when I had completed this card I went on a little blog hop and found that Bev had almost the same idea as me on how to use the Magnolia Doo Hickey  flower dies from Crafts U Love, I will be using them a lot more I just love them, I have distressed the edges with Tumbled Glass Distress Inks from Crafters Companion then used Diamond Stickles around the edges, I also used the New Doo Hickey Leave Steam die, the gorgeous Rose, Cherry Blossom and Rose Buds are from Wild Orchid Crafts.


Here is a closer view of the bottom of the card and finally a close up of the image



Well thats todays card now for a lovely surprise award I received yesterday from the lovelyDawn from Dawns Crafting Place, thank you for thinking of me dear and for your sweet comments  Mwah xxxx.  The award is good enough to eat!!!

2. Post it with pride on your blog – Yes must say I am really proud to do that

3. List 3 things you love about yourself.  - This is a hard one, I suppose you could say I am a good Mum (I hope my Kids agree), I care about people and lastly I think I have a good sense of humour
