My Sugar Bowl of Love


I am soooo happy I got to take part in the third Sugar Bowl challenge. Love and Romance is the theme, and I think a Great Big Hug covers that don't you?



I used one of my favorite Sugars the Bunny... I just love her.





Now all of this is going to have to be really quick as Hubby is gonna be yelling at me really soon that I am holding everyone up. We are going on a field trip... taking MIL to the cemetery and on a few other errands, a day trip which should be a nice day the weather looks wonderful. One thing is we are taking Libbie, this will be her first trip "bye bye" so wish me luck.





Ok the card - I used two scrap papers, sorry I don't know the names just that they are wonderful pink and white papers. I stamped the bunny and the Alota Rubber Stamps heart Circle and colored them with my Copics. I then high lighted with my diamond stickles. Then sentiment in the center of the circle was just perfect for the bunny don't you think?


I punched the bottom of the dark pink pattern paper with Martha's small Valentine Border punch, then ran a piece of American Crafts ribbon across the top of it. I punched a bunch of EK Success Retro flowers out of scrap card stock. So many Valentine Cards the last couple of weeks, lots of scrap pinks card stock! I inked the edges of the petals, and high lighted with white gel pen. Put them together with jewelery spacers and mini brads and added a charm in the center flower. I then used a large metal corner that I found last week, these have been in my stash forever! Really I can't remember not seeing them in the drawer! I love how it all came together, very girlie, pink and white with the touch of brown.


Sorry to blog and run, but Hubby is tapping his foot. I am suppose to be ready to leave at 9AM... it is 8:31 at this moment, and I am sitting here in my robe and slippers and still need to get Libbie's things together - AHHH


HUGS to all of you!

This is adorable! Love the verse in the swirl and hearts! I have been inspired by your work to buy some stamps from Alota but their web-site is hard, I can't find a thing you list! Anyway I am enjoying your cards with their stamps :)
