The Sugar Bowl #50


At the stroke of midnight when we see in the New Year it will be 2 years since GAYLE started the first challenge over on The Sugar time flies. I remember bringing in the bells then dashing for the PC to see what the first challenge was...if I remember correctly it was a fabby sketch by Tiets.

It is a true honour to now be a part of this talented team of sweeties.

Our new challenge for you on

this time is another fabaroonie sketch by the uber talented and lovely MARLENE

Marlene has asked for "Embossing" as her theme this time.

We have a super prizes on offer as always........ yes I did say prizes

 Nestabilities & Sugar Nellie stamps worth over £50.

We will have 2 of these prizes up for it's our 2nd Birthday!

 No~one does prizes like SUGAR NELLIE

Here is my take on Marlene sketch which i flipped....

 I have used Luv a Latte for my card and I have watercoloured her for a wee change.
 Isn't she adorable...I'm really loving these new Sassy stamps once you start colouring them they are this space........

 I have added a couple of Marianne Design Creatables corners allthough I think they might just be a wee bitty overpowering lol. Divine swirls embossing folder by Cuttlebug and a Nellies Choice multiframe die. The design paper is K & Co. The punched corners were achieved using a X-Cut corner punch. I popped my image on foam pads to make her stand out. I lurvs her she is one of my Sassy favourites.

Please pop by my fellow SWEETIES blogs and leave them some luv.

Thanks for stopping by.
Whatever you are doing today......enjoy! Ali x
