The Sugar Bowl 65 - 2nd entry

My 2nd card for the challenge over at The Sugar Bowl. This time I decided not to go with the optional of blue (mainly because the image was already coloured to match these papers). But I just had to get this image onto a card - lovin this one. I added a bit of stickles to her clothes to make it nice and sparkly. The papers are a download from Sweet shoppe designs - Winter Wishes by Zoe Pearn. These were my must use papers last year, and working on it this year. The border punch is EK Success - just had to get some snowflakes in there somewhere. The sentiment circle is from Whimsy stamps.

The Sugar Bowl #65

Thought I had post this card for the challenge over at The Sugar Bowl before I forget. I was supposed to post it the other day - oops. Anyway - the optional theme is blue. I kinda used blue (as long as the added pink is OK - and yes, it is blue paper honest). The paper is a download from Pink Petticoat and I found the ribbon in my stash and thought it would go. Martha Stewart cherish border punch and butterflies to finish off my Sassy image. I'm lovin these girls - soo cute.

Winter Wonderland CCT

I thought I had better get cracking on some Christmas cards. Everyone around me keeps telling me it's only so many weeks til Christmas. Aaargh. So for the challenge over at Cute Card Thursday they want to see clean and simple. I don't usually go for this style, but might just have to change that. I got this Marianne D stag die, which says it all really. So I printed out the Merry Christmas (several times before I got the right size/place right enough) and matted all onto brown card. Yes - brown, I know it looks black though. I scribbled the brown around the text layer just because I thought it looked a bit bare.

And my second card for the challenge over at Winter Wonderland where the theme is Light it up. So I used this cute Bildmalarna image and the sketch over at Sweet stop. The papers are Papermania, punched snowflake, printed sentiment, a bit of ribbon, button and job done.

The Sugar Bowl #64

Thought I had better get a move on with my card for the challenge over at The Sugar Bowl. They give you longer - well it just takes me longer to make it. It isn't really how it started out to be. I coloured my Sugar Nellie Pip image and started cutting the paper for a 5" card. Oops - image is a bit too big for that. So I was gonna print more out, but lay ed it onto the 6" card and thought I would give it a go using that bit. It's not how I usually end up, but think I might just have to try it again. The papers are Sweet shoppe Designs by Zoe Pearn. I added a bit of lace and a doily cut from a cheery Lyn design die. I couldn't find the sentiment stamp I wanted, so left it for now. I don't know if I will add one later - probably not. I chose the bright colours for the Sugar Nellie Facebook challenge, which is summery yellows and oranges.
