The Sugar Bowl challenge....

Happy weekend everyone... it's been a very tough week for me as I had to do my work as well as someone else's, which is no joke!  And then you don't even get a thank you when they return to work! (whinge whinge...lol)  But at least the weekend has arrived and we can get some more crafting done to relieve us of the stress.

Here's my little number for the Sugar Bowl challenge this week, which consists of following a sketch.  You need to use a Sugar Nellie stamp and this adorable one which was kindly stamped for me by my friend Paola is called Fingers Crossed.  I just adore her, don't you?  I managed to use some of my new papers too.

The base of my card is a powder blue from AC. The check DP is Day Dream from Sassafraslass (first I hear of them, but the paper is gorgeous). The centre piece of DP is from Upikit and the lovely pink is from a pad of paper purchased from our local CNA. My lovely cherry blossoms and pearls are from Paola's shop and the roses from my own stash. And finally, the border was punched for me by my friend Sandra in the UK. I am really enjoying using these Sandra, thanks so much.

I am so thrilled with the outcome of this card and hope the team at the Sugar Bowl think so too. 

Enjoy what's left of the evening and I'll catch up with you again tomorrow.  Thanks so much for visiting and your kind comments. Take care, hugs Sharon x
