Spoon Full of Sugar - a Sketch by Tina!



Hello - and yes it is Tuesday and Tuesday's are Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge day!




"For our challenge this week we have a fabulous sketch which has been kindly designed for us by our Guest Designer Tina. Why not pop over here and take a peep at Tina's blog. Her attention to detail on her cards is amazing. Don't forget you may rotate, re size or elongate the sketch. You can even make something other than a card. All that we ask is that we can see that the item has followed the sketch. Please feel free to use a square or rectangle for the main image."




I just loved her sketch this week, was perfect to use one of my newer stamps from Lelo Designs, These kitties are named "You Go First", I don't know why... but they are cute! I colored them with my Copics, then high lighted wtih white gel pen and dimensional glaze.

White cards stock is used for my base, with scraps of a dark Rosy pink as mats for the pattern papers and the image. Do you love those pattern papers? Oh they are just yummy and they have raised glitter on them too! They are from My Minds Eye Laundry Line - I am loving these papers. You know there are lots of stacks out there, and I love papers in them, but not many where I know every sheet will be used, this is one of them.

I cut the papers to match the sketch for the vertical band I punched the edge with my Martha Stewart Valentine scallop punch - hard to tell in the photo. Then everything is sewed down with a zig zag stitch and a pretty shiny light pink thread. The sentiment is from Studio G, one of those $1 sets from Michael's, love it!

There are some really adorable cards this week from the other DT cards - and it is a really fun sketch to work with, why not check it out and do it too! There is a fabulous prize this week from our sponsor Nutcrafters. One lucky person will win High Hopes 'Cowgirl Candice', High Hopes 'Howdy Pardner' sentiment and also a Prima 'Pixie tin' (small assorted colour flowers). Thank you Colette and Katie for this wonderful prize!

Me.. I am cleaning today - actually sorting and organizing a bunch of stuff that has been stacked up for a long time. I need to get help with my wanting to save everything. I have done pretty good in all the other rooms, but our bedroom, particularly the corner of my crafty area... yep tons of stuff that I just can't part with. Someday I may want it to do something crafty with. But today I hope to narrow down the stacks and get everything put on the shelves. Hubby don't think it will happen. Well if I can't get it all on the shelves I will find somewhere to hide it just so he thinks I did! LOL

Hope you have a great day -

HUGS and-
