Sugar Bowl ~15 Gayles sketch

Yeah..its another Sugar Bowl Thursday!!

Hope you are doing well. Me, I'm grand. My oldest 2 boys have been staying at their Granny and Grandpas all week so I have been down to 1 kiddo. It has been great to get some extra things done that I normally just do not have time for. I have cleaned out toys and clothes, hoovered behind beds, pulled out weeds..blah blah blah!! What an exciting life I lead :)

Right tee hoo..onto me card. I have flipped Gayles fabulous sketch around and the extra option this time is ribbons and bows.

I have coloured a fabulous new Gorjuss girl from set 3 with prismas and copics. I ued copics for the hair and prismas for the dress. The dress has also been cut out and curled for dimension, then stuck on with foam pads.

The lovely lovely papers I bought from my local-ish craft store, Simply Create. They are from Panduro and are sooooo yummy. All my layers are stitched together and the edges distressed with 'Worn Lipstick'.

For the 'ribbons and bows' extra option I decided to have a go at the ribbon blossom. The tutorial can be found here on Splitcoaststampers. My blossom is a lot smaller than the one int he tutorial and a lot messier too! LOL! But I had fun making it and it looks kinda funky!!
Here is a wee peek of the inside..same papers and colours and a wee sentiment from Aud Designs. Just love those circular sentiments. So I hope you can find time to join us.....this time the winner will receive the 4 manga images that were previewed on the Sugar Nellie blog this week. Wow..what a prize..... I just love these new funky, yet cute images. Can't wait till they go on sale!
Anyway, have a wonderful day....I'm off to do some more 'spring' cleaning, while I get the chance.

This so pretty and feminine, using my favourite colours too :D

You should probably take a picture of the bedrooms before the children arrive home so you can remember all your hard work ;D Nice to have a little more time for yourself though.
