A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 24 - Sketch by Trina!

We have a great sketch for you to follow over at A Spoon Full of Sugar which has been designed by the very talented Trina!

We have a fabulous prize this week of the below Letraset Contemporary Christmas ProMarker's. This has very kindly been donated by Bryony from Silly Monkey Crafts

For my card this week I used a sweet Hanglar Tea couple -Tomtepar med fika. For my sentiment I used part of the High Hopes "Christmas Fishes" sentiment. All edges are distressed with VersaMagic Jumbo Java.

Before I go I would like to thank Pops and Claire for passing the "I love your blog" award to me. Hope your having a great week and finding time to get inky!

Hugs,

Card is fantastic. I have 100 of these alcohol ink markers and they are fantastic, especially since they have 3 different tips on each marker.
