A Spoonfull of Sugar Challenge



At last I am back with a card,  had the most fantastic time at the NEC and it was just so great to meet everyone, it never ceases to amaze me how nice everyone in blogland is,  it was great to catch up with some very dear friends again and to meet many new friends.  Had the best time on the Lili of the Valley Stand, with Lisa Laila, Lucy, Bev we even had a visit and Dinner with the fabulous Dena from the USA and Andy and how could I forget Richard, , who had me and our customers in fits of laughter, although my feet were about to give up on Sunday it was such a pleasure to work on a stand where just everyone loved every single item we had on sale, what a lucky girl I am to work for Lili of the Valley.  I am sorry I had to rush off on the Sunday though, my dear friend Lin drove all the way from Canterbury to pick me up but had to get straight back as she had a family emergency, thank you dear xxxxx.


I must say though I was very disappointed with the show, I didn’t buy much at all, only spent £50 and that was on just one stall Cuddly Buddly, I bought a Marianne Die and a couple of Toby Tumble stamps which I love, and of course I had to visit Jill at the Hobby House to get my fix of unusual embellies.



Our Challenge this week on A Spoonfull of Sugar is chosen by Sonja who would like to see

Snow and/or Snowflakes!!!

With Christmas just over 6 weeks away there is no excuses not to play along!


I just had to use one of the new Cuddly Buddly Toby Tumble stamps I bought, I just couldn’t wait to get home and play, (I actually bought the rest of the set in digi form as soon as I got home),  the DT cards on show at the Cuddly Buddly stand were just outstanding and really sold these images to me.  The paper is from the new Magnolia Collection from Crafts U Love, the snowflakes which have been edged with Barn Dorr Distress Inks and glittered have been punched with a Martha Stewart Punch, the flowers are from Wild Orchid Crafts and the sentiment is from Lili of the Valley Christmas Sentiment collection.




The Colours used:

Jumper Hat and Pressie:  R27, R17, R05, R02

Trousers: B32, B21, B41

Ribbon: YG07, YG05, YG21

Have a good day and don’t forget to scroll down to find out the winners of  my Candy.
