Clean & Simple at the Sugar Bowl!

Hey there all you "Sugar" lovers!! Guess what?! It's time for another sweeeeet challenge at the Sugar Bowl...Challenge #70! And our very own talented DT sister, Maria Therese, has given us this fun sketch to follow...


...with "Clean & Simple" as our theme!

Now, you all know that I love my embellies...the more the better! But today...I must admit...I've outdone myself with my "clean & simple" efforts! hehehehe!!


I started out with another one of my fave Sugar Nellie stamps called "Apple Pip"... she's one of the Sherbet Pips from the Home Grown Collection and you can find her HERE at Funky Kits! I decided to make a little "altered notebook"...I've never made one before...but, I'll be honest...it was fun! I highly recommend it! Especially if you can find a cute little notebook for just $1.00 like I did!


The notebook was already kinda cute with its existing green plaid cover, but then I thought it would be fun to  "jazz it up" with a bit of designer paper from Basic Grey's "Oxford" collection layered on Not Quite Navy cardstock from Stampin' Up. I finished it off with a fun little flower from K & Co.! Here are the Copics I used to color this cutie patootie...

E21, 00, 000, 0000 (skin)
R20 (cheeks)
E29, 25, 23, 21, 53, 51, 50, YR21 (hair)
B99, 97, 95, 93, 91 (blues)
G28, 24, 21, 20, YG93 (greens)
E25, 23, 51 (stool & basket)
W1 (shadow)

Ohhhh...and that darling sentiment is from Stampin' Bella! Here's one more view...


OK...now it's time to tap dance on over to the Sugar Bowl and take a peek at the gorgeous creations by my fellow DT Sweeties. Then...why not pull out your art supplies and get busy creating your own card or project for this fortnight's challenge? Who knows...you may just be selected to win a fabulous prize from Sugar Nellie. Once again, our prize for this Sugar Bowl Challenge is....

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

So...you'll definitely want to enter...AND invite your friends to join in the fun too!! Now...let the craftin' begin! Thank you so much for stopping by...and for all of your kind comments that always make me smile!! Sending sweet hugs...until next time....
