A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 25 - Kids



Our challenge this week over at A Spoon Full of Sugar is to create a card for kids. You could make a card for your child, niece, nephew, grandaughter. grandson etc.. for Christmas, Birthday, wish them well or good luck. Maybe you need to design some party invites/ bags? We welcome your creativity so maybe you want to make a gift.. book, door hangar, book mark, decorate an item.. lots of possibilities!

We have the below goreous prize this week from our sponsor Summer - Roses on Paper.


Poppet has joined us this week as our Guest Designer so don't forget to check out her gorgeous creation.

I have used these two cute Hanglar kids on their bikes and this card did take me a while to do but am pleased with the results. Once coloured and cut out I cut small slits into the baskets on their bikes to pop in the rugby ball which is from the stamp Sugar Nellie Rugby Hamish and then the little bear came from Rachelle Anne Miller stamp Lola's Tea Party. I just love this gorgeous bright Basic Grey Cupcake paper . The "Favourite Things" ribbon was pinched from my daughter Zoe's stash.. Thank you Zoe!

Before I go I just wanted to thank Sandra for passing the "I love your blog" award to me.

Hope you get time to join in this week.

Hugs,

Ink: Memories
