Sugar Bowl challenge 104

Hello
Time for me to catch up on all that's been happening.

A mad baking session to do an afternoon tea for two friends, one of whom is a fellow crafter. Ginger - cherry choc bites, Malibu cupcake, Cointreau cupcakes, iced lime tray bake, Viennese fingers clotted cream scones. All preceded by finger sandwiches. A really scrumptious spread.

Then a sewing spree, making high hair cushions and banners!


Now for my card for The Sugar Bowl competition number 104.
(http://sugarbowlblog.blogspot.co.uk/2013/05/challenge-104-june-2013.html)
Using two Leanne Ellis stamps from Funky Kits http://www.funkykits.co.uk/catalog/index.php?cPath=127_54
All is not lost and To remember. I cut a square gatefold down to create a house shape. Cut flowers using 
a sizzix die and papers from MME. Added some foliage from a couple of Marieanne dies. Coloured the images 
with polychromo pencils.

 Added a greeting from SU stamps and a heart from an xcut die.

Hi Honey I'm Home!

Monday 6th May 2013
I've been missing a while, family problems have taken all my attention for the last few weeks.
It's been a struggle to keep positive but I think we're coming out the other side!
At least it's been a lovely few days of sunshine, which makes me feel like smiling again. Add to that, a weight loss of 3 1/2 stone!

So, to catch up on my most recent projects I'm posting some pictures. I will be adding some instructions and competition entries this week. So check back for some nifty ideas!

Sugar bowl Challenge 101

Hello, it's been a few weeks since my last post, but li'll Jay has been in hospital and nana has been poorly and a close friend has started treatment for a second breast cancer..... But onwards and upwards, these things are sent to try us!

So I am posting the first card that I've done in weeks! For the Sugar Bowl competition. I also added this to the Official Sugar Nellie Facebook page Sugary Sunday comp.
The only specifications were Spots and stripes, so I embossed these onto the base card and matt. I used "First Dance" from Funky Kits Swiss dots embossing folder and a hoagie board for the stripes. The flower is made from a set of stamps from My Minds Eye called Cutie Pie.
The butterfly was from a freebie die on paper crafting magazine. Coloured the image in using pro markers and added gems, pearls and glitter. A ribbon and stick pin from stash and small metal heart with gem was an earring!

I hope you like it!
