My First Sketch at Spoon Full of Sugar!




I am so excited, my first "real" sketch is out there... please be kind with me. I have never done a computer generated sketch before, and really was nervous, but excited about my first being one of the challenges at A Spoon Full of Sugar! But here it is and I hope you will have fun with it.










And since this was my first sketch I had to make a Donkey card right? This is from Alota Rubber Stamps Donkey set, I just love the both set one and two! I colored my little guy and his turtle friend with my Copic Markers and Spica Glitter Pens. The moon is all sparkles! And those sparkles needed complimentary sparkle papers, so I picked three patterns from the DCWV Baby Boy Nursery papers. I inked the edges of everything with a bright blue cats eye ink. Sewed down all the pieces, including the sparkle blue ribbon as the band. I wanted my flowers on the top right corner, Retro EK Success Punch, are also inked and then have glitter brads for the centers.


The sentiment, part of set 2, I adore! (Thanks Helene for adding my special request sentiment in this collection!)


I hope you enjoyed my Donkey Kisses card and my sketch. PLEASE have some fun with it and join in for the fabulous prize at a Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge, this week we have a Gorgeous prize of Teenage Lizzie Kindly donated by Katharina from Whiff of Joy why not pop over and take a look at the fab stamps that Katharina has on A whiff of joy.




I need to thank a bunch of people for a Blog Award.....
(if I missed someone, please let me know as my email has been acting really off the last few weeks)

First I have received this award from Crafting Diva Designs, Kirsten at Isis Imaginings, Camilla
and Annie

This blog invests and believes the PROXIMITY - nearness in space, time and relationships!These blogs are exceedingly charming. These kind bloggers aim to find and be friends. They are not interested in prizes or self-aggrandizement. Our hope is that when the ribbons of these prizes are cut, even more friendships are propagated. Please give more attention to these writers! Deliver this award to eight bloggers who must choose eight more and include this cleverly-written text into the body of their award.
So for my eight that I pass this on too - it is a few more than eight... but I am going to pass this on to my fellow Spoon Full of Sugar DT... for being brave and making some wonderful cards with my first sketch!
And our guest DT this week:
