The Sugar Bowl #48

 A very good morning it's Thursday :D yeah and time for another challenge from

Thanks to everyone who joined in our last challenge.

This time we have a super sketch by the uber talented Marlene....thanks sweetie it.

We have an added extra too if you wish to use which is Black, White and 1 Colour of your choice.
I decided not to add the extra option this time.

We have a fabaroonie prize on offer too..........a set of Nesties Classic Scalloped Squares and wait for it....... A sheet of not yet released Alice in Wonderland stamps from Leanne Ellis...Wow Wow Wow!!

Here is my interpretation of Marlene's fab Sketch...hope you like.

I have coloured Sweet As Candy with inkpads.
I've been practising my colouring with distress inks and I'm delighted with the effects this time.
I do have a limited number of colours just now but I've also been using my Stampin Up inkpads and I'm loving the results. 

The papers I've used are Cosmo Cricket and swiss dots embossing folder. Basic Grey buttons finished with SU thread. the large paperclip is from my stash. I attacked the edges of the card and papers with my scissors for a distressed look which I actually like. So there we have it.

also the SIMPLY SASSY GIRLS Set 2 is now available from Funky Kits be quick though as they are flying off the shelves.

Please pop by my fellow sweeties blogs for a drool at their fab creations.

I'm off to a Stampin Up workshop this morning run by my fabby friend MAGGIE my SU Mama...can't wait to hear all about her convention trip....and place a well overdue order too :D
Can't beat craft stash therapy its the best!

Thanks for stopping by!
