Sweetie Search

 Wow what a change in the weather today it is blowing a hooley (very windy) here on the island.
I have been creating this morning yeahh!!!
When I saw that The Sugar Bowl were looking for new Sweeties to join them I thought well in for a penny in for a pound and as the sweeties say "You have to be in it to win it"

Her is my effort with the sketch that has been provided to follow.

I have kept the card quite simple lots of white as i wanted the image to pop.
I have coloured Sitting Pretty using my Prismacolor pencils.
The senitment is by Stampin Up I love this stamp.....the buttons from my stash. The checked ribbon is by Martha Stewart it comes with the DSST aleady on it so it!

 A wee close up for you. I love this image she is adorable.

I would like to thank everyone who took the time to leave me a comment on Saturdays post for the Sugar Nellie blog hop. I was flabbergasted at how many and such beautiful words you left me. Thank you from the bottom of  my heart. I never think my work is very good so you boosted my convidence so much.... thank you. 

Thanks for stopping by.... see you soon!

Stampin hugs

This is gorgeous Ali. Love the colour combo. Good luck with the DT call and of course your work is good enough. Definitely. I loved the one you did for the blog hop. I didn't have time to do it on Saturday as I was at Jacqui's event day. Super day, Kath was on great form lol!

Hi Ali,
It's a good job you don't live within prodding distance, or I'd give you a sharp prod in the ribs and possible a slap on the legs too!
Of course your cards are good enough, more than good enough!
Karen wouldn't have asked you if she didn't love your work. Says me, who nearly fainted when I got Karens email, and checked it twice just to make sure she really did intend to send it to me! We are our own worse critics and we all know it. Now think yourself severeley reprimanded!
Right, your card is fabulous. I've said before how I love your style. CAS, and I think CAS is the hardest style to pull off as everything has to be just perfect.
Well I love it, clean & simple and strikingly beautiful.
Love Elaine xx
