A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 40 - Shape Shifters


Our challenge this week is called "Shape Shifters" and we would love to see all different shapes of cards. We welcome two new designer to our team - Caryn & Karen. We also welcome Bev as our fabulous Guest Designer this week. Please pop over to these ladies blog and admire their gorgeous creations.

We have a great prize of the two cute stamps below (Easter Jar & Chick in Egg). These have been kindly donated by Helene from Alota Rubber Stamps. Aren't they just adorable!


For my card this week I have used my new SU Top Note die to cut the main design of my card shape - thanks soooo much Kelly! The cute little stamp is a Riley from Hanna stamps and is called Ballet Sophie G. A portion of the proceeds from the sale of this stamp will go to the Kelly Laude Cancer Fund. As well as making this for our own challenge I am entering my card for the Hanna Stamps SCS challenge where this week Vicki is asking us to add metal to our cards.

I have used papers on my card today from Designer Digitals. I would just like to shout out to Claudette - Islander Girl and thank her for mentioning her friend Mindy Teresawa in a recent comment. I think you have all guessed how much I am love with Imaginisce papers. Mindy is the designer of some of the cute papers I have been using. I was like a kid in a sweet shop when I see her fabulous range of online papers. I was always a little scepticle of downloadable papers but I think you will agree they look pretty fab! I am converted!

See you in a couple of days!

Hugs,
