A Spoon Full of Sarah!



I Love Tuesdays! It is Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge day! And this week is one for the girls, we all love that, those girlie flower cards! Make sure to check out the challenge, this week is a fabulous prize! Don’t forget you can use Sugar Nellie, Rachelle Anne Miller, Sarah Kay, High Hopes or a Hanglar Image somewhere on your design. So make sure to give it a try! Girls cards are fun!




My card today uses one of my new Sarah Kay stamps... you will see these a lot from me, as I am in love with them! And this may be one of my favorite, or at least until I color in one of the others =)




I used my Copics, white gel pen and my Sakura Glaze and Souffle Pens to color in this beauty. I then stitched the edges with a pink Souffle pen to match the fabulous pattern paper. This is Cosmo Cricket and it just goes so well with this image. A yellow Bazzil card stock is used for the base, and the pink cross stitched pattern paper is double sided and is used it to make a double mat. Now those chicken... are they not just adorable? I cut them out one of the pattern papers, inking the edge of everything. The words So Sweet were cut out of another pattern paper from the same set, matted and inked. I get stitched the edge of the card stock. I then placed prima flowers and buttons in the center. It all matches so perfect and this is one of my favorite cards! I just love the country feel and that the chicks match the little chicks in the image.



Well today is going to be short, a long list today! Hope you all have a great Tuesday... and have some crafting time -

HUGS and
