The Sugar Bowl #59

Morning Peeps it's time for another challenge from the fabby Sweeties over on


Fabaroonie prize on offer as always.......the prize for this challenge is a 'steam punk' gift bag including stamps, charms and embossing folders. Fab or what?

This time we have a sketch by the lovely Erika and her theme is distressing! Yes I was distressed at the thought of it. I love WHITE lol. A fabby sketch Erika thank you and after I got over the initial distressing shock this is what I came up with.

I have used "Party Frills" by Sugar Nellie and coloured her using Prismacolor pencils. The papers are Vintage Rose by Pink Petticoat and the doily I received in a RAK from the lovely CATHY mwah.

Well today I start work after a very long time away..... I'm so excited. Wish me luck! Next best thing to a craft shop a Toy Shop :D

Please pop by my fellow sweeties blogs and leave them some lurv.

Have a fabaroonie day

Lovely card Ali. Hope all goes well today. Don't spend all your wages on your lovely grandsons. Mwah xxxx

All the best with being back at work. Roses & Lace springs to mind so this is definitely vintage........I'm not a great one for Distressed either; mind you I had a Distressed husband this morning - no phone call from the Skip company when the lorry was delayed......... what happened to old-fashioned courtesy.

Sorry for distressing you Ali. I love your card. Enjoy you day back at work. I did give folk the choice of distress or vintage, as I know it's not everyones "thing".
