A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 29 - "Thank You"!

Our challenge this week over at "A Spoon Full of Sugar" is to make a "Thank You" card.

We have a fabulous prize this week of the below Sarah Kay stamp - "Country Girl". She has very kindly been donated by Bryony from Silly Monkey Crafts. They have all the new Sarah Kay's currently in stock. They are disappearing fast but don't worry they have more arriving very soon! My fellow DT member and chum Marlene has made the most gorgeous card with this stamp which you can see here.
We would also like to welcome Jodi as our Guest Designer this week. If you have not visited Jodi's blog before your in for a treat! I would also like to thank Jodi for passing the Butterfly award to me!

For my card this week I have used another adorable stamp from the Pink cat Lily and Tweet set. You remember my christmas gift box below?.. well I told you there was a great variety of stamps in this set! I have also used my new Spellbinder flower shapeabilities - which I love! You'll be seeing these lots.


Have a great week and hope your Christmas preparations are going smoothly. This week I am trying to organize all the children's toys to make room for the tree.. oh and more toys!

Hugs,


card details:
Stamps: Pink Cat Lily and Tweet set
Ink: Momento & Versamagic Jumbo Java
Papers: Daisy Bucket and Bazzill card stock
Technique: Prismacolor Premier Pencils with Sansodor and paper stumps for blending.
Embellishments: Handmade button - thank you Stephanie!, pearls - thank you Heidi!, buttons and coloured string
