SugarBowl Challenge ~2~


Wow.. the first challenge set over at the SUGAR BOWLhas been a roaring success.. a great big thank you to all that have participated and hope that you are continuing to do so 🙂

It’s now time for the 2nd challenge and this week the theme is   “THREE”

We would like to see your cards with 3 different DP (no more or less!) and also 3 different types of embellishments.

My choice of DP are 2 from BG Blush and 1 PaperMania simply elegant.

For embellishments I have used Dewdrops, Ribbon and Beads

The stamp I used is “Porridge” from the Home Grown Range, coloured with Ranger distress inks and touched with SU! markers plus Sakura glitter pen… the sentiment was printed from PC.

I hope you will join in the challenge as there is not one, not two…..

but superduper prizes to be won!!

So I hope you will all join in and try your luck!

Check it all out here:


As you have probably seen on SUGAR NELLIE’S blog.. they have announced some AMAZING news!!

I still can’t believe I’ve been invited to join them in Orlando, Florida.. for what looks like an amazing crafting experience.. and able to go to CHA!!!! *insert twirly dance here*  *Ü*

It’s simply perfect.. feel like my dream is coming true, can’t wait to meet the other Sugar Babes.. 


I’m still all in a flutter.. lol.. so excuse this bitty post!!

   Hope you will join in the challenge again this week and have a wonderful day!

Big hugs,
