A Spoon Full of Sugar - "One for the Girls"


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.

Last weeks challenge was "one for the boys" so we couldn’t leave out the girls. We would like you to make a girlie inspired card this week.

As of this week we now welcome you to use the cute Sarah Kay and High Hopes stamps in our challenges.

We have some fantastic blog candy to send one randomly chosen winner this week, which Bryony from Silly Monkey Crafts has kindly donated. Silly Monkey Crafts have the Sarah Kay stamps in stock and a great range of High Hopes stamps. They are also taking pre-orders for the new HH releases which should arrive very soon.




2 sheets of Karen Foster 'bubbles' paper
High Hopes Stamp 'Good Clean Fun'

I also made my DT card this week to join in with the Friday Sketcher challenge which has a great sketch from my good friend Heidi. I just love this gorgeous High Hopes stamp and she is one of my favourites.

Medium: Prismacolor, Sansodor & Paper stumps, Sakura Stardust pen for added bling!
Paper: Dovecraft Retro Floral Prints - Available from Silly Monkey Crafts

Claudia Rosa said...

gosh nikki, you have a fabulous sense for patterns and colors. I have so much paper with these patterns and i actually did not see how well they work together.
thank you SO much for the inspiration. I think sometimes you just need to see a good sketch and somebody actually putting it down to paper.

fabulous
