A Spoon Full of Sugar Challenge 41 - Torn Edges

Our challenge this week over at A Spoon Full of Sugar is called Torn Edges. I just love to tear up my papers but if this frightens the life out of you maybe you could just rough them up a little using the edge of a ruler or scissors ;-)

I couldn't wait to ink up one of these cute Gorjuss girls and i've been very brave and stamped lots of swirls (stamped in VersaMagic Aegean Blue)and little extra's on my card today. The card smells just delicious as I have used one of the tags sent to me from my friend Heidi. Hhhhmmmm Cinnamon. The papers are by Cosmo Cricket. I tore them then added some VersaMagic chalk in Jumbo Java. Stamps used from SU sets Sealed with a Kiss and Yummy. The flowers were cut using SU 5-Petal Flower punch. I finished the back of my card off with some left over scraps and my handmade stamp.

This week we welcome our wonderful and talented Guest Designer Caz. Thanks Caz and can't wait to see you soon at Ally Pally :-)

Our prize this week has been kindly donated by Colette and Katie at Nutcrafters. The prize will be some gorgeous Prima embellishments. This will include: Urban Cosmos chipboard buttons, brads and center kisses gems.


Be sure to check out Nutcrafters new look website. They have new stuff including Prima flowers and ribbons. Their Magnolia, Sarah Kay and The Greetings Farm stamps are arriving very soon!


I received the above award from Natalie.

Also the above award from Tania.


Also this award from Mar.

Thank you so much ladies, you are all so sweet and am I honored that you would think of me!

Have a great week!

Hugs,
