A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge


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 week we have this fabulous sketch for you to follow from the very talented Katharina. Remember you can use Sugar Nellie, Sarah Kay, Rachelle Anne Miller, Hanglar or High Hopes stamps in your work.


This week we have a Sugar Nellie "Baby Millie" Stamp to send one randomly chosen winner. This prize has been very kindly donated by Lim.

Zoe finishes school today for just over 6 weeks so I will be slowing down for Summer so we can have fun with the girls. I will still be posting but will limit this to two pieces of work each week. I will still be around to visit my blogging friends and leave comments. I probably won't get back to normal until early October depending on how quickly Danni settles into Nursery. I am really dreading her starting as I know once they start school the years then seem to fly by and I can't believe Zoe will be starting Year 4 in September.

Have a great week.

Stacey said...

Such vibrant colours - really striking. LOVE the flowers and the buttons - super dooper! ~x~

The Country Rose said...

Nikki- your card is just precious :)! The years do fly by too quickly- before you know it they are getting married and starting families of their own. Will miss seeing your work as often, but it really is very important to spend as much time as we can with our little ones while they are growing. My youngest just turned 14 last month and in only four 'short' years she will be entering the world of adults. Childhood goes by too fast :(.

Brocéliane said...
