A Spoon Full of Sugar - Challenge 33 "Sketch by me!"

We're back at "A Spoon Full of Sugar" and have the below sketch for you to follow this week. Hope you like it and i've kept it pretty basic so not to scare anyone with our first challenge of the year! Feel free to use a rectangle or square for the image. You can see another example of how I used this sketch here.

I have used the gorgeous Pink Cat Studio "Lily the Fairy" which I told you about a couple of posts back. You can download this gorgeous pdf image for free! Don't forget you must use her to enter the Pink Cat Studio contest!

Not long to wait now until the new PCS Lily & Billy Sweethearts and Kiki Kitty stamps are released. They will be available to buy on January 15th with sneak peaks being shown on Monday 12th January onwards!!
They are just adorable and I know you will love them!

We have a fabulous prize this week of the below two cute stamps - Rose Bug and Ballerina Bug. These has very kindly been donated by Helene owner of Alota Rubber Stamps.

We also have a fabulous guest designer this week - Nina.
If you have never visited Nina's blog before your in for a real treat her work is stunning!

Hope you find time to get inky and join in with us this week!
