I give you my heart..

Grabbed a little time today and got to finish a card
with one of the gorgeous Sassy girls from Sugar Nellie

This cutie is called ‘I give you my heart’
and she is one of my favorites from set 2.

Wanted to make an Easel card this time..
as it’s been a while since I done one of those!
You can click the pic at the top of this post to get a better view of this.


The sketch I’ve used is from The Sweet Stop,
stumbled upon their blog while hopping and the sketch just jumped out at me.
Loved working with it.. thanks for sharing!

And a Spoon full of Sugar got an open ‘Anything goes’ week


I’ll leave you with this close-up

Have a great evening all,

Black, white with a splash of colour


YAYY.. new challenge is up and for a change I was in plenty of time!!

I loved the theme of B/W plus 1, that always helps heaps right?

The sketch has been provided by me this time..
Tried to keep it simple, you can then make it as intrecate as you like 🙂

For my card I’ve used the gorgeous Leanne Ellis ‘Pick Me’ stamp,
teamed with some new MME ‘Dawn’ papers.

I had to use my new Grand Calibur ofcourse and made the cardshape with the Go Kreate label dies,
at the moment the choice of larger dies is still quite limited,
can’t wait till January when more of the European dies come out!

As usual the price for joining in with the challenge is fantastic!


A Nesties classic scalloped squares set..
and a sheet of not yet released alice in wonderland stamps from Leanne Ellis!!


Don’t forget..
the only rules of joining in with the challenge is that you follow the sketch and use a SUGAR NELLIE image.
The themes we set for the challenges are always optional, so won’t affect your chances of winning!

Please pop by the SUGARBOWL blog for all the details
and to see the stunning samples from the DT for all the inspiration you need!

Have a fabulous Thursday all,

Little light of mine..

Hope you are all enjoying your weekend so far?

Made myself a promise to make a start on some Christmas cards
and with this cute Sassy stamp would fit the theme I thought what with the candle and all..

But as it all come together, I’m wasn’t so sure so left the sentiment off..
until I know what I’m gonna do with it 🙂

The sketch used is from the Friday Sketchers blog..
and as the theme over at Secret Crafters is Sparkle & Shine,
my card  with the shiny ribbon and sparkly image
[better seen if you click the pics for full view] fits in there too

The gorgeous Simply Sassy stamp used is
‘Little light of mine”
and over at Funky Kits the 2nd set of these cuties are now available to buy!!

Right, I’m off to settle down and watch X-Factor.. Elton John week!

Thanks everso for looking

Sugar Overload.. not bad at all!

Promised I’d be back soon.. didn’t I??

The SUGAR BOWL has had a new challenge up.. and I’m only a week late!!
Luckily the Sugar Bowl challenges last for 2 weeks so plenty of time for anyone still to join in
and have a chance of winning the fabulous prizes that are up for grabs.

I received a little parcel of sweetness containing the Simply Sassy stamps from Sugar Nellie today,
love these quirky images, aren’t they just such fun?
I wanted to colour one straight away and make my belated Sugar Bowl card with it.

I masked “My friend Kitty” onto a swing [C.C Design]
but then the image turned out rather large and couldn’t be used with Maria Therese’s gorgeous sketch on my normal square card size,
I then thought of folding the front panel back on itself and use it as an opening panel.
I love this quick & easy card style 🙂

Here are a couple more views of the card, you can click them to enlarge.

The optional theme for the challenge is “Ribbon & Bows”,
I’m quite impressed with myself that I’ve even managed to do that.. LOL

You have another week to join in with the Sugar Bowl challenge,
do pop by the blog to get all the details and fab inspiration by the DT.


Some more sugary sweet news is that the next Simply Sassy designs
are available to buy from Funky Kits this weekend.. Yay!
And have you seen the new “Simply Adorable” images that are going to be turned into stamps?
They are just awesome!


My card also ties in with the CUTE CARD THURSDAY challenge for this week,
it’s an “Anything Goes” week!

Have a fabulous evening all,
