A Spoon Full of Sugar - Ribbons - Rhinestones - Flowers and a BIG Letraset OH MY!

Hello and Happy Tuesday!! I am so excited about something in today's post.. so read on through and see at the end :0) But first - Today's Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge!

The theme for today is a bit of a list to check off - You need Ribbons - Rhinestones (or Pearls) and Flowers to complete this weeks challenge. All fun stuff for us right?
I totally had a blast with this one! First I went with the the new Stampavie Tina Wenke image "Mailing Letters" - love this one! And I had lots of fun with the bold Letraset Aqua-Markers! I matted with red card stock then went to my Tilda papers for the pattern papers. I hoard these papers as they are really hard to come by here in the US. Sewed down the layers, and then went for the required items on the list. I wove ribbon through a piece of lace, then layered some gorgeous mulberry red roses and Martha Stewart frond leaf punches. My sentiment is cut out with a oval Nestie, then a Spellbinders fancy tag. This is where I put my rhinestones.
Love the Aqua-Markers bold colors - you can make them as light and as bold as you like. That is one of the fabulous things I love about them.

Now before I go on and on about the markers - I do want to make sure you remember to pop over to A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge when done here and see all the DT cards - then play with us for an awesome prize!
Now Some LETRASET news!!!! I was contacted by their Online Marketing Executive - who thanked me for using them, and showing them off here on my blog - Well Hello ... I am the one with the huge Thank you to them for letting me play with their fabulous new markers! They are really awesome to use, and I have been having a blast with them - and then..... You ain't gonna believe this.... :0)
He offered to let me share a set with one of you!!! YEP They want to send out SET one, 12 of their AquaMarkers to one person who leaves a comment here! TOLD YOU Too cool!!!! Anything I can do to spread the word about these great markers I will love to to do. And now after they have asked to share set one with one reader of DonkeySmiles... well anything Letraset would like me to do for them, I am here! LOL Love to share great products don't you?

So all you need to do is leave a comment here on this post. And Next Tuesday I will have a winner announced - Doing the happy dance here.. how about you? Can't wait to see which of you get to play with these great markers too...

Ok.. better get to work now, see you tomorrow for Me and My Space!
Hugs and- Good Luck!
