For our challenge this week at A Spoon Full of Sugar I have created the below sketch for you to follow. Also our reader challenge today over at the Scrapmagasinet DT blog is Halloween. Lisbet has very kindly given you the chance to play along by using the Krilla Bunny digital image as shown on my card. One lucky player this week will win a surprise package... what are you waiting for girls... get downloading!!!!

Krilla is coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. The fabulous papers are K&Company. The trick or treat sentiment is from a Lizzie Anne Designs set. I added some Raffia Lace for added texture. I think the halloween buttons may have been doodlebug and the other buttons used in the corners are from the Sugar plum collection.

High Hopes Challenge 45!!!

Wow.. I can't believe it's challenge day already... where did the week go? I had a struggle getting my post done this morning as half way through poor Danni was sick!!!

This weeks challenge is hosted by our talented Diva Jeanne. Jeanne is asking you to use your favorite High Hopes image.

The random winner of this weeks challenge will receive the below cute stamp - Jolly old St. Nick. Such a great stamp to get you started with your Chistmas cards!

The fabulous layout used on my card today is from the wonderful challenge site Sketch Saturday. I am so lucky to be sponsoring their challenge this week. Thanks Jo!

I had such a hard time choosing my image for today as I have sooooooo many favourites. I really need to get started with my Christmas cards so choose Snow Sweet Snowlady. High Hopes do an awesome selection of these cute Snow People. My card is really sparkly but this isn't being captured well in the photo's. My Snowlady is stamp in Memento then coloured with Prismacolor pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. I have then given her a light wash over with Sakura Stardust using a damp brush. This gives such a pretty effect. To finish my image I have added stickles to her hat and scarf and cut her out.

The gorgeous papers are from the My Minds Eye Wonderful Winter Glitter stack. This stack is just lush!!! The snowflakes have been cut out with the Martha Stewart Artic Snowflake punch. This is one handy little punch and is sure to get plenty of use over the next few months.

Have a great Sunday and see you Tuesday for the next Spoon Full and also Scrapmagasinet challenge.

High Hopes Challenge 44

This weeks challenge over at the High Hopes blog is hosted by our sweetie and very talented Diva Inge. Inge is asking us to Wrap it up!!! Basically this week let you imagination go wild and all that Inge is asking is that we see NO cards. You could make a gift box, bag, cover a book, bookmark, gift wallet... so many things you can create.

The random winner of this weeks challenge will receive the below cute stamp - Tidy up Tillie.

I made a little Christmas gift bag. I cut a paper bag to size and covered it with the new My Minds Eye from the Wonderful Winter Glitter Stack. The colours are just so pretty. The cute image is Party Hippo with Sentiment Hippopotamus for Christmas. This stamp is so versatile and great for birthday cards too.

I have lots more High Hopes arriving tomorrow. As well as restocks of the newest release I have lots of good old favourites coming too. If there is ever a stamp you are after which I don't stock be sure to drop me an email.

I couldn't help myself and had to use one of the new Prima flowers from the Evelyn Sugar blooms collection. Oh they are just so yummy!!!

Party Hippo is stamped in Memento and coloured with Prisma colour pencils with sansodor and paper stumps to blend. I also added some more sparkle with stickles.

Be sure to pop over to the High Hopes blog to check out the fabulous creations from the team.

Have a great Sunday. My girls have a party this afternoon for 2.5 hours at a Playcenter. Ok... fun for them but I can think of better ways to spend my Sunday afternoon ;-)
