Sugar, Sugar, Sugar....

Hi All!

Hope everyone had a nice Wednesday. We spent the day with a good friend and her children. The kids played and we chatted, great way to spend the day. And now it's time to relax with the hubby and kids. But first, I do have a couple cards to share.

I had some time to stamp last night and made two cards for two different challenges. The first one is for the new A Spoon Full of Sugar challenge which was a sketch. I can't seem to pass up a good sketch, ever!

I used this image from Whiff of Joy, which I received in a swap. He's been colored with Copics, highlighted with a white gel pen, and finished off with some glitter glue. The papers are BasicGrey Marrakech and SU! Night of Navy, Tangerine Tango, and Riding Hood Red cardstocks. The accents are Marrakech Buttons and some hemp twine. I also distressed some of the paper edges. This photo looks a bit fuzzy, not too bad, but I see some blurring. Photographing the color red is always tough. Anyone else have that problem?

This next card is for the Sugar Bowl challenge, which was also a sketch. This one involved a bit more paper and layers, so it was a bit trickier.

I started with this Gorjuss Girl, colored her in brightly with Copics and then paired her with some old SU! DSP. I forget the name, but it's a fun pack of cheerful summery colors. The accents are punched flowers, striped grosgrain ribbon, and silver brads and hodgepodge. The sentiment is from SU!'s set Short and Sweet.

Thanks for stopping by! Sorry for the later posts this week, but my days have been much busier with the school vacation. Hope you have a nice evening! See you tomorrow.

Happy Stamping! :)
