A Spoon Full of Easter Goodies -

This Tuesday A Spoon Full of Sugar is a wonderful Sketch by Debbie, and was perfect to try out one of my new images from Alota Rubber Stamps.


We have a great prize this week of a $12 gift certificate which has very kindly been donated by Summer from Roses on paper. Thank you Summer! So make sure play along, cuz we all know how many wonderful items they have!




Ok, quickly here is my card - gotta get dressed and gone for day two of Donkey Day at the Rodeo.

The image is called "Easter Jar", I love all the yummies in the jar, but the I really love the jar, I just love old Mason Jars, I collect really old ones, and this one just called to me. I colored all the goodies with my Copic Markers, then once everything was colored I put a layer of Dimensional Glaze just on the glass section. Oh man I really wish you could see how cool this looks in real life.
I followed the sketch with some really adorable Spring paper, it is double sided, so only used one sheet here! Sorry, can't remember the name. I bought it online and the name wasn't on it and I can't find my invoice. I hide or throw away all proof of purchases :0) LOL I then sewed a zig zag stitch and also a gel pen white stitch around the edges. I was stumped for a sentiment and then found this Popsicle stick in my stash... seemed to fit.
Please do run over and see all the cute cards at A Spoon Full of Sugar - and join in a wonderful sketch.
Better get a move on - sorry I have been so quick and on the run lately... life -
