MMMM back to a Spoon full of Sugar and a bit of Sugar Bowl!

Lots of Sugar today! Yes! I have my card for today's Spoon Full of Sugar and then for just a bit more Sugar I have a card for the new Sugar Bowl Challenge!






First my DT card for Spoon Full of Sugar -
This week is a FABULOUS sketch by Nikki! I love this sketch really a fun one to work with. And to also let you know to make you want to play even more there are some yummy stamps up for grabs from Alota Rubber Stamps!












For my card I used one of the new Stampavie stamps from Lelo Designs. Loving these new images there are so many fun ones to choose from! This is Little Susie, isn't she cute?



Now I wasn't a great organized person while making this card. I am going to blame all the cold medicine I was taking. I did not write down who the paper was from. And I think the maker is on one of these pieces sewed down. So it is real pretty...love the purples, but sorry no name. I used a purple card stock for the base, sewed down all of the pieces with a blanket stitch. My image is colored with my Copics then I cut her to give the appearance like she is sitting in a window. The sentiment is from Hero Arts. Love the ribbon it is from Heidi Grace and is layered on top of a satin ribbon. I stacked lots of Prima Flowers topped with jewelry spacers and mini brads.



It is a wonder sketch this week, with great prizes so why not jump in and give it a try this week! Hope you do!




Now for just a bit more sugar....



There is a new challenge site The Sugar Bowl Challenge, to use any Sugar Nellie Stamp! Well about time they have a challenge for all of these wonderful images!


For the first challenge they have a sketch - I used one of my favorite Sugar Nellie images and my favorite papers, DCWV Glitter Girls Nursery Stack. I followed the sketch as close as possible, sewed down things trying to make it flat... wow this was a tall stack of papers. My image again is colored with my Copics. The flowers are a gift from a sweet friend and are from Close to my Heart and are like paper clips, I broke it in half and used glue dots to put them down to make them go farther... thrifty huh!
Really wonderful new challenge I hope to take part as often as I can!
Well better get my day going. I actually feel almost human today I think I am on my way to breaking free from what ever sickness has had me all week. I actually may leave the house and do a couple of errands today... like finding some food to bring in as the fridge has nothing good to eat in it! Hope you have a wonderful day and have some time to take part in a few challenges and get inky!
HUGS and-
