SWEET SUGAR NEW YEAR CHALLENGE

HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ONE AND ALL

Well what better way to start the new year than with the new Sugar Bowl Challenge with a fabulous sketch by Tiets.
This fits in with my resolve to take time and trouble over my cards this year and try and make cards I am happy with and not "just that will do cards"!!
I have had this gorgeous Maggie Stamp for well over a year and I have never inked her up can you believe that!! I expect there are lots of you out there that can relate to this statement.



This is the inside of the card, I have seen lots of people decorating the inside of their cards and it certainly finishes it off.



Thanks for Looking Sue :o)

I'm happy with All your Fabulous cards!!..I remember well when our little guy was neutered....but yours sounds more active..and I understand from my daughter that spaying is more serious....what a pain eh?...especially it being in winter...we have so much snow...hard to stay dry....Hugs, Ila

Oh I do love those soft muted colours & shame on you not inking this little beauty up for over a year. But I must agree we are all guilty of these things from time to time...
