For the GIRLS...

Greetings fellow "Sugar Lovers"!! It's time for another fun fun FUN challenge over at the Sugar Bowl! Our very own talented DT sister, Marlena, has given us this clever little sketch to follow...


...with "For the Girls" as our theme!! So...I pulled out another one of my new fave Sugar Nellie "Sherbet Pips" (available at Funky Kits) ...and put together this little card!


Such a Cutie Patootie, huh?! Her name is Candy Pip! Let me tell ya, I am sooooo lovin' these little Pips...I just can't wait to get my hands on the next batch! They can't come soon enough for me!


I used Barely Banana & Soft Suede cardstock (from Stampin' Up)...and the DPs are from Heidi Grace!! I used Nestabilities dies...and added some ric-rac and brads from my stash. The sentiment is from Just Rite Stamps. And here are the Copics I used to color this sweet little darlin'...

E21, 00, 000, 0000: Skin
R20: Cheeks
E29, 25, 23, 21, 13, YR21: Hair
Y23, 21, E000: Yellows
BG72, 10, 000: Shirt & socks
E23, 21, 51, 50: Shoes
C1, 0, 00: Flower petals

Here's a peek at the inside...pretty simple...but all those bows make this card pretty girly, don'tcha think?



And, of course, the ever popular "artsy" view...

OK...now it's time to pop on over to the Sugar Bowl and take a peek at the gorgeous creations by my fellow DT Sweeties. Then...pull out your art supplies and get busy creating your own card or paper project for this fortnight's challenge. Who knows...you may just be selected to win a fabulous prize from Sugar Nellie. Our prize for this fortnight's Sugar Bowl challenge is....

your choice of FOUR Sugar Nellie stamps
(increasing to SIX if we have 100+ entries!)...

OK...let the craftin' begin! Thank you so much for stopping by...and for your very kind comments that always make me smile!! Sending sweet hugs...until next time....

You sure do know how to design a card! Hey, I jut ordered some of these cute images - this very one too. Maybe I ordered them about a week ago. I don't know how I came across them but they walked straight into my heart. I am loving this sketch too!

I like the way you carry the design inside the card. It gives it such a finished look. Banana and Suede are some of my favorite colors in SU too.

Hi Pat! Whilst you have been crafting up a storm (and an earthquake!) I have been in sunny Crete. I've just got time to have a speedy viewing of your recent beauties and maybe stop by a few. This one is adorable. Love it to bits! Hugs, Lesley
