A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 5 - Checks Galore



Thank you to everyone who entered a card into our challenge last week over at A Spoon Full of Sugar. It has been so lovely to visit your blogs and see all your wonderful creations.

This weeks challenge is called Checks Galore. We would like you to make a card using any type of check paper, ribbon or brads, etc. Remember you need to use either a Sugar Nellie, Rachelle Anne Miller or Hanglar stamp.

We have some fantastic blog candy to send one randomly chosen winner this week, which Donna from Crafty Krafts has kindly donated.



I would like to thank the very talented Katharina as the inspiration for my design came from one of her fabulous Sketches (Sketch 9).

Card detail:
Stamp: Hanglar girl from Spring Club kit
Medium: Prismacolour, Sansodor & Paper stumps, Sakura stardust pen and Fruit punch Stickles
Paper: Green Pansy Toss by Susan Branch
Embellishments: Buttons, ribbon and blooms
Equipment: Wizard Machine, Nestabilities, Cuttlebug and Embossing Folder "Bloom Dots"


FANTASTIC MAIL DAY!

Thank you Karin for this wonderful blog candy. I love your gorgeous Tilda card and it is sitting proudly on my mantelpiece.
Thank you Jill for sending me these lovely Hamish stamps and they will certainly come in handy for the "A Spoon Full of Sugar" Challenges.

Hi Nikki sorry I am late in posting had one of those horrible days no mojo no energy, no nothing, so decided to tidy my craft/bed room. Anyway your card as always is fantastic, and so vibrant I love the way you have coloured the little H&S girl, and sat her on the mat. Brilliant, if you let me know your address I have a couple of stamos for Zoe & Hannahs blog, I think its fantastic what they have done
