Christmas Sugar

Seeing as I'm on holiday from work this week I managed to sit down for a daytime craft sesh yesterday ... yippee!!

One of my makes was this card for Sugar Bowl Challenge #25 - Lilian's sketch ... with the request to "please include" your favourite colour.

My fave colour - at least when it comes to cardmaking - has to be


Dunno why really ... it's not a colour I wear overmuch or have in abundance around the house... but I do like it on cards :-). And this week over at the Sugar Bowl there is plenty of reason to get inspired as they have a totally fabulous prize on offer of 12 - yes, 12! - SN stamps .. now I only own a very small number at the moment so I'm hoping that on the 12th day of Christmas my present will be 12 SN stamps a-dropping through my letter box lol!

Anyhow, I thought I would give it a little bit of a different twist today, so I teamed it with black to give a slightly less girly-whirly feel.

Main image: Sugar Nellie "Daisy", coloured with warecoloru pencils and decorated with li'l pearls.
Sentiment: Penny Black transparent set "Salutations", inked with Brilliance "Starlight black" ink;
Papers: Bo Bunny "Alissa Kissable" and "Unforgettable";
Supplies: Pink flowers by Prima; pearl brads and large spacer from The Hobby House; dragonfly brad by Dovecraft; raffia lace from Hobbycraft; small black gems by Hero Arts (thanks Domi); small pearls from my stash;
Tools: Nestabilities - large classic circles, large classic scalloped circles, labels three; large black flower punched using EK Success extra large flower punch & small black flower using X-Cut flower punch.

... and here's a quick peek at the inside ... Please excuse the photo quality but the light levels are really shocking here today - totally dull and miserable weather!

Hope you are all enjoying the Christmas break, whatever you're doing.
