I dipped my finger in the Sugar Bowl .. and an award

.... and only just in time too :-) So far I have only a couple of Christmas Sugar Nellie stamps, and haven't yet ordered more as the ones I want are out of stock :-( I do have a couple of RAK images around the house, but was thrilled when yesterday I received a load of new ones including this gorgeous "Daisy" from the fabulous Marcea. So .... off I went with Sugar Bowl Challenge #1 which is the following sketch by Tiets.

I also decorated the inside, though only simply as it was already nearing midnight last night as I was finishing off!
Image: Sugar Nellie "Daisy" coloured with watercolour pencils and Sakura sparkly pens. Cuta nd mounted using new nesties - "Labels 2" and "Curved rectangles"
Sentiment: PB transparent set "Hugs"
Flowers: Prima
Pearl brad and gems: Papermania
Papers, buttons and ribbons: from my stash (includes my Secret Santa prezzie papermania "Exquisite" cream paper).

I'm looking forward to joining in this challenge often as these stamps are really growing on me ... I think there will be a credit card surge when they are back in stock lol!

I was also thrilled to receive the following award from Maria - thanks so much for thinking of me! The rules are that you can pass it on to as many people as you want ... well I have already done abit of choosing recently so fell I can't pick any more ... there are so many lovely blogs that I visit. So if you visit me and haven't got this award yet, please consider yourself duly awarded.
