A Spoonful of Sugar - Sketch by Debbie

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 would love you to join in and follow the sketch below created by Debbie. Thanks for the great sketch debbie and it was fun to work with and I will use it again.
We have a fabulous prize to give away this week which we will be sent to one randomly chosen winner. The "Charlie and dog" stamp has very kindly been donated by Katharina from "Whiff of Joy Stamps". Thank you Katharina.
For my card this week I have used this gorgeous Sarah Kay "Picnic of Daises". I just love these pretty bright papers which are by Three bugs in a Rug and area part of the Blossom collection. The "Happy thoughts" paper in this range is just great as it has lots of words which can be chopped up for sentiments. Most of the products used on my card today including the ProMarkers can be purchased from Silly Monkey Crafts (I have added the individual product links below). I have used a combination of ProMarkers and Copics to colour my image and have to say apart from the nibs being different I can't notice a difference between the ink quality.


Right before I go I just want to also thanks my friend Barb for passing the above award to me a couple of days ago. If you haven't come across Barb be sure pop on over to her blog and have a good look around.

Back in a couple of days with my first official High Hopes DT card as my DT stamps have now arrived - Yippee!
