A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 36 - Love is in the Air!

Our challenge this week at A Spoon Full of Sugar is to create a card or gift for someone special. A perfect time to make a Valentines card or maybe to spoil a special friend with a card or gift. I have decorated two SU Rhinestone brad containers to send to a couple of special friends. I have used the cute new release Pink Cat - Kiki Kitty. I realised looking back that I am not very creative when it comes to colouring my Kitty. So far they have been mainly grey and I wonder if that is because our cat Gemma is grey! For a little change today we also have a ginger cat!

I stamped Kiki and then cut her out using the circle nestabilities. I then masked Kiki and copic airbrushed the background while the circle was still inside the nestability. This then leaves the white edging.

We have a fabulous prize this week of the gorgeous Greeting Farm Stamp "Princess Anya" which has been kindly donated by Bryony owner of Silly Monkey Crafts.

We have another fabulous Guest Designer joining us this week - Marte. If you get time please check out Marte's blog as her work is beautiful.

I have been spoilt again with lots of awards.


Thank you Christelle for the above awards. Christelle is a good friend of mine who has only recently started her blog. If you get time please pop over and pay her a visit as her work is beautiful. Her very talented daughter Honorine also has a new blog.

I received the above award from Nicole.

The above award has been given to me by Suzzane.


The above award was given to me by Alex and Justine.

Thank you to you all! I am sorry I have not been passing these on but please know they are greatly appreciated!
