Summertime at the Sugar Bowl...

Hello my lovelies...

Can you believe it's time already for another fun challenge at Sugar Nellie's Sugar Bowl Challenge Blog?! YAY!! They are always such fun!! For this fortnight's challenge, our very own talented DT Sweetie, Marlene, has given us this fabulous sketch...with "Summertime" as the theme!


Well...since I seldom follow rules precisely...in crafting or in life...I decided to rotate the sketch a wee little bit! hehehe!! And...drum roll please...here's my little masterpiece....


I just love this little Simply Sassy image by the very talented artist, Krista Smith! Oh...who am I kidding? I love 'em all!! This cutie's name is "Butterflies & Pigtails"...and she's available, along with the entire line of Simply Sassy stamps (as well as about a  kabillion other fabulous Sugar Nellie stamps and digi images) at Funky Kits. Here's a close up...


I colored this little darlin' with Copic Sketch Markers and Prismacolor pencils...and added some luscious flowers from Wild Orchid Crafts. The butterfly is a Martha Stewart punch...and the ribbon is Certainly Celery from Stampin' Up. I used CuttleBug embossing folders, added some jewels from my stash, and popped on a butterfly charm from the Charm Barn online store. Oh...I almost forgot...these gorgeous DPs are from the Lilac Avenue Collection (KaiserCraft).


OK, sweet friends...you know what comes next, right? It's time to visit the Sugar Bowl and take a peek at the gorgeous creations by my fellow DT Sweeties. Then get busy making your own paper masterpiece! Be sure to use  Sugar Nellie stamp or digi image...follow Marlene's sketch...and use "Summertime" as the theme so that you'll be eligible for a fabulous prize! That's right...one lucky participant...selected at random, of course, will win a set of "Pips"...one of the new and utterly delicious Sugar Nellie stamp sets that will be available on July 1st!! I'm pea green with envy...because I want them!! These little darlin's are to die for!! So...whatcha waitin' for? Get crafting!!

That's it for me...Thanks so much for visiting...and for always leaving such sweet comments. Enjoy your crafting, darlins! Sending "Simply Sassy" hugs your way...until next time....
